The Stanford Next Asia Policy Lab (SNAPL) is a new innovative policy lab housed at Shorenstein APARC under the directorship of Professor Gi-Wook Shin. The lab is committed to addressing Asia's emergent social, cultural, economic, and political challenges. The Lab's initial research focuses on two themes. The Talent Flows and Development research theme will examine how various forms of talent mobility and strategy have contributed to the developmental success of different nations in the Asia-Pacific region. The Nationalism and Racism theme will explore how nationalism and racism are intertwined to create various forms of exclusion and intolerance across the region.
SNAPL is offering two inaugural postdoctoral fellowships (two years in length) to begin fall quarter 2023. One fellowship will focus on “Talent Flows and Development,” and the other will focus on “Nationalism and Racism” in Asia. The deadline to apply for fall quarter admission is December 1, 2022. SNAPL is also offering two visiting fellow positions to researchers and professionals from Asia with a PhD or a substantial record of achievement related to the Lab's two research themes. These visiting scholar appointments are for one year, and the deadline to apply for fall quarter 2023 admission is March 1, 2023.
