The PANEX-YOUTH Project, a cooperation between Brazil-UK-South Africa, seeks to use an action research to co-create this knowledge about such adaptations and generate wider recommendations, with young people, and the vulnerable communities in which they live, and non-governmental bodies and non-profit organisations that focus on this age group.

  • Experience in qualitative/participatory community-based research
  • Experience with international staff
  • Fluency and writing in Portuguese and English
  • PhD completed less than seven years ago.

The position is open for candidates of any nationality. The FAPESP fellowship will provide a monthly grant of BRL 8,479.20 for 20 months, and a research contingency fund equivalent to 10% of the annual value of the fellowship for expenses directly related to research activities.
