Nordic Centre provides academic services and office spaces for visiting scholars from our Nordic member universities. If you are a researcher at one of our universities and want an entry point to academic China, or a base for working with external actors in Shanghai, this opportunity is for you. We also accept master's level students working on their theses.
If you come to Nordic Centre or other places at Fudan University as a visiting scholar, you may also apply for funding (the 'research platform') for travel to Shanghai and back home, and for expenses arising from your stay (this however is not open to BA and MA students). Preference is given to applications that show a potential for long-term collaboration.
Visiting scholars can be from any kind of academic discipline, and the stays in Shanghai can be for whatever purpose is relevant to your work -- from meeting new or already acquainted colleagues working in the same field to gathering data or writing papers. We can help connect you to local academics at Fudan University or elsewhere, and can also offer advice on how to reach locals with surveys or for interviews, and inform you about important things to keep in mind when operating in China. We also of course have a library and various venues for activities; you will also have access to Fudan University's main library.
Please read our Handbook for Visiting Scholars to get an overview of what we offer, and how to prepare for coming to China.
The application form for funding is here. Note that Fudan scholars can also apply for funding for research visits to the Nordic countries to work with colleagues at our member universities there -- so please inform your Chinese collaborators about this opportunity.
Applications for 1) an office space as a visiting scholar or for 2) funding for visits/stays in Shanghai can be sent at any time, to email@example.com
Also contact us if you have any questions about this opportunity.
Note that the fee for one month's office space is 100 euros -- though we sometimes waive this under special circumstances, or if the visiting scholar is the recipient of our research platform funding.
The SNoW 2016 Workshop - "Family and working life in Chinese and Nordic welfare policies" - will be held in Nordic Centre, Fudan University, Shanghai, on 21 October 2016.
We invite papers on family-work relations and related social policies and welfare institutions in China and the Nordic countries. The aim is to increase knowledge about policy experiences and lessons to be taken and lessons which can be of relevance for policy development in order to achieve a better family-work balance in transforming China.
Nordic Centre in Shanghai is looking for an intern for autumn 2016, duration September through December. All students at our member universities are eligible to apply, regardless of major. The deadline for applications is March 25 (midnight); materials should include a one-page CV and a one-page cover letter, to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Interviews will take place via Skype in April.
Note that while the internship is unpaid, we cover accommodation, and also offer a tuition-free Chinese class (at any level) at Fudan University plus one other elective course, taken in combination with the internship work at Nordic Centre.
If your university programme can offer academic credits for the internship, we are open to making adjustments to let this happen (e.g. number of hours worked weekly, or total duration of the internship).
