PGGC welcomes Visiting Fellows and Research Associates for their intellectual contributions. They help establish the programme as an intellectual hub for scholarly engagement around gender issues, contributing a rich array of perspectives from different disciplines and geographical locations. Visiting Fellows hold a Ph.D. and are looking for a conducive environment to develop their research. Time of affiliation is variable but limited to one year maximum.
The Visiting Fellows Programme
PGGC welcomes applications for Visiting Fellowships from scholars whose research focuses on gender issues as related to globalisation, development, and international governance. We are particularly interested in scholars working in the following areas from a feminist and international perspective: agriculture and rural development, international organisations and social movements, reproductive health and rights, conflict and security, and migration. Proposals focusing on other international/global issues from a gender perspective will also be considered.
Visiting Fellows receive access to the Graduate Institute library and are provided with an office space. They are expected to actively participate in the PGGC intellectual community, write a working paper to be published in the PGGC series, present their work at the Gender Seminar Series, and attend PGGC events. They acknowledge PGGC in all scientific output produced while in residence.
PGGC receives applications twice a year, at the beginning of October for the next Spring semester, and at the beginning of April for the next Fall semester.
Applications should include:
- A letter of motivation;
- A research proposal of no more than five pages outlining the problem to be explored, approach and methods;
- A curriculum vitae including a list of publications.
Applications should be sent, preferably by e-mail and in PDF format, to Emmanuelle Chauvet at pggc[at]graduateinstitute.ch
