Announcement of the candidates selected to the second phase - Postdoc Fellowships at the Center for Metropolitan Studies - Interviews on the 24th of June, 2015.
The Center for Metropolitan Studies (CEM) is a Research, Innovation and Diffusion (RIDC) with support from FAPESP. It is an institution for advanced research in social science that investigates social inequalities and the formulation of public policies. It consists of a multidisciplinary group, which includes demographic researchers, political scientists, sociologists, geographers and anthropologists, whose research agenda is focused on citizens’ access to well-being. The CEM researchers work in several fields of knowledge and apply distinct methodologies in their investigations.
Postdoctoral Fellows (PD) shall conduct theoretical and/or empirical research, in addition to other regular activities, such as participation in seminars, paper writing and the dissemination of research results. The postdoctoral fellowships are expected to develop projects in one of the following themes:
1. To understand the independent effect of State policies on social conditions and inequality reduction.
2. To understand the role of political institutions on the decision-making of redistributive policies, particularly voting behavior and law-making process.
3. To map alternative forms of governance in urban areas and their connections to the State in order to understand "who governs what”?
The opportunity is open to Brazilian and foreign candidates. It is desirable to have a PhD in Social Sciences or related fields with a strong history of publishing and good performance in spoken and written English.
The selected candidate will receive a monthly fellowship in the amount of R$ 6,143.40 and a grant, equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should be spent in items directly related to the research activity.
The fellowship also include a setup support for researchers who need to move to the city of São Paulo, Brazil, the institution´s headquarter. More information about the fellowship can be found in the following link: www.fapesp.br/en/5427.
