The Stanford Center on China’s Economy and Institutions (SCCEI, pronounced “sky”) is Stanford’s home for empirical, multidisciplinary research on China’s economy. We aim to foster path-breaking research, create transformative student experiences, and advance public understanding of China’s economy and its impact on the world. Our research runs the gamut from developing interventions to improve early child health and education, to conducting large-scale surveys of Chinese factory workers and college students, to detailed analyses of China’s carbon emissions data.
First come check out this talk on Thursday, November 4 at 4:30 pm in the Robert A. Jones ’59 Conference Room
The guest will be Scott Rozelle, Helen F. Farnsworth Senior Fellow and co-director of Stanford Center on China’s Economy and Institutions (SCCEI) in the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research at Stanford University. He will be discussing “Invisible China: How the Urban-Rural Divide Threatens China’s Rise”
Hosted by the Economics Department and co-sponsored by the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, International Politics and Economics Program, the Center for Careers and Internship, and the Departments of Chinese and International Global Studies (East Asian track.)
If this topic and sort of work interests you, then stick around afterward (tentative) for an information session about what SCCEI does, and also learn more about this J-term internship and job:
JOB as Academic Editor. Apply HERE. You will have a chance to co-author papers that are drafted/published under your direction. This is an excellent opportunity to learn quantitative research skills and methodologies, build up writing and publishing experience, and hone your research interests in preparation for a graduate degree program, or the next step in your China-focused career. Past academic editors have gone on to top medical school, law school, masters, and PhD programs in the US.
J-TERM INTERNSHIP: You will spend four weeks (January 3-28) working closely with SCCEI’s Co-Director Professor Hongbin Li, drafting a book on China’s economy, focused particularly on human capital, factories and firms, and other social institutions. This is a writing intensive position, and will involve reading policy documents and academic literature, having one-on-one meetings with Professor Li to discuss book content and chapter outlines, drafting original content based on discussions, and editing existing writing for logic, clarity, and grammatical structure.
