The Paul and Marcia Wythes Center on Contemporary China at Princeton University and Fudan University School of Data Science have come together to create a combined Postdoctoral Fellowship Program: Fudan-Princeton Postdoctoral Program (FPPP). Applications are currently being accepted for two postdoctoral research associates. This program is intended for postdoctoral candidates with an interest in using data driven research to better understand modern Chinese economics and societal issues. At the end of this program candidates are expected to become leaders in their field, drawing upon their program experience from hosts, seminars, workshops, and public lectures.

The FPPP begins on September 1st, 2018 and is intended to be two year program that spans both campuses with fellows expected to spend twelve consecutive months on each respective campus. After the first year, the performance of each candidate will be evaluated. If performance is deemed to be sufficient, the candidate may continue on to the second year in the program.

Some possible topics for research include: analyzing the systemic risks of financial and economic systems, studying the relatedness between the cost of healthcare and biological processes, and inspecting the economic mechanisms that underlie the increase of real estate in China. At the end of the program, fellows write a 10-page report based on their experience at the FPPP. Fellows are encouraged to publish with their respective hosts as Fudan and Princeton.

Funds will vary depending on the school site. Please note that one candidate will begin at Princeton University while another begins at Fudan University. Upon successful completion of the first year, candidates will rotate to the alternate institution.
