Position description

Boston University’s Global Development Policy Center (GDP Center) seeks applicants (pre-and post-doctoral fellows) to work on its Global China Initiative (GCI). In addition to receiving support for dissertation and post-dissertation work, fellows will participate in the China initiative’s research projects, seminar series, and policy engagement activities.

The energy and climate team within GCI at Boston University’s Global Development Policy Center is seeking a pre-doctoral and/or post-doctoral fellow. Candidates should demonstrate a strong interest in being involved with ongoing research on the relationship between energy policy, climate change, and overseas foreign investment.


​​​​​​​Qualifications include:

  • Enrolled in or graduated from a PhD program in environmental science, political science, geography, public policy, or a related field;
  • Organized and detail-oriented;
  • Experience with quantitative methods for policy analysis, and/or topical fieldwork experience
  • Familiarity with international financial institutions.

The GDP Center will accept applications from all disciplines, especially engineering, public health, business, and the natural and social sciences. Priority geographical regions of interest, in addition to China, include Africa, Latin America, and South East Asia. Fluency in Chinese or a language from one of these regions is preferred.

The majority of the fellowships will be awarded for the 2021 academic year. Fellows will receive a competitive stipend and modest funding for data collection and/or fieldwork and potentially be eligible for reimbursement for relocation expenses.
