A Call for Proposals for the ASEAN-Canada Junior Fellowships

The ASEAN-Canada Research Partnership, with the support of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Canada, invites applications for the 2013–2014 ASEAN-Canada Junior Fellowships on Natural Resource Management for Sustainable Growth.

11 junior fellowships will be offered for 2013–2014. Research should seek to address the challenge of finding means of improving systems for managing natural resources to allow sustainable economic growth and meet growing energy needs in the ASEAN region. The papers should explore how to do this without degrading common resources (increasing atmospheric pollution and greenhouse gas concentrations, and overharvesting and causing degradation of open access fisheries and forest resources) and with due regard to human security. Research must be analytical and policy relevant.

Fellowships will commence in January 2014, with fieldwork and a first draft of the paper to be completed by June 2014. Junior fellows are expected to participate in workshops and produce at least one publishable academic paper (8,000 words).The fellowship comes with a stipend of CAD 12,000 (the total sum for the duration of the fellowship).
