Visiting Scholars - research - SEAS. The School of East Asian Studies can host a small number of Visiting Scholars (VS) and welcomes applications from candidates interested in being associated with the School.

Visiting Scholars - research - SEAS

Visiting Scholars make a valuable contribution to the research life of the Department, involving themselves in internal activities where possible, and contributing valuably to the external profile of our research and expertise. They benefit from the association with the Department and the University of Sheffield, having access to library and other research resources and the opportunity to interact and build profitable collaborations with staff and students. A VS is expected to have completed a PhD (or have equivalent experience) and be able to demonstrate a track record of excellent research and the potential to produce high-quality publications.

A VS can be appointed for up to one year. Their positions are not normally renewed after this time, except where a compelling case can be made for an ongoing association. About - EASP.

EASP. APN Overview. The Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) is a network of 22 Member Country governments that promotes global change research in the region, increases developing country involvement in that research, and strengthens interactions between the science community and policy makers.

APN Overview

The APN defines “global change” as the set of natural and human-induced processes in the Earth’s physical, biological and social systems that, when aggregated, are significant at a global scale. The APN works to enable developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region to participate increasingly in regional cooperative research, and to benefit fully from such research. It strives to assure that the research results contribute to the development of science-based adaptation strategies, policy- and decision-making processes, and developing scientific capacity to address these important issues.

History Since then, the APN’s activities have advanced steadily. Vision Mission Goals Core strategies. Social Change and Transformation in East Asia - Research Clusters - research - SEAS. The disciplinary foci of this cluster centre on history, gender studies and sociology.
