FELLOWSHIP: SANDEE Sir Partha Dasgupta Fellowship in Environment and Development Economics

The South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE) announces the Sir Partha Dasgupta Fellowship in Environment and Development Economics for 2011. Sir Partha Dasgupta is one of the founders of SANDEE, a research network hosted by ICIMOD in Kathmandu, Nepal. SANDEE's mandate is to support research and training in environment and development economics in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Maldives, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

In honor of Prof. Dasgupta's contribution to Environment and Development Economics in South Asia, SANDEE is offering an annual Research and Writing Fellowship. The objective of the Fellowship is to provide researchers with space and time to think and write about issues Sir Partha has worked on in environment and development economics, including game theory, welfare economics, poverty, and nutrition.

The Fellowship will include: a) an honorarium for the duration of 2 months to cover living, accommodation, and related expenses in Nepal; b) economy-class return air fare; c) desk space in the SANDEE office.

The Fellowship is open to individuals with a Ph.D. in Economics and a demonstrated research record. We would also consider proposals from small teams of researchers who want to undertake joint research. Researchers working on South Asian environmental issues will be given priority. The Fellowship can be used to finish papers or to start new research. Researchers are expected to participate in a limited manner in on-going SANDEE activities during their stay in Nepal. This may include reviewing a few papers or making presentations on their work. While researchers are expected to spend the Fellowship with SANDEE, we would consider requests to split time between SANDEE and any other appropriate institution in South Asia.

Interested candidates are requested to submit their application by February 21st 2011 to application@sandeeonline.org by e-mail. Your application should include (i) a cover letter indicating your interest and period of availability, (ii) a one or more page description of the research you plan to undertake, and (iii) a short CV indicating your research publications.

Deadline: February 21, 2011
