When rural medical clinics in Pakistan started transmitting real-time performance data to policymakers, doctor attendance and inspections increased.
The Stanford King Center on Global Development hosts faculty, researchers, and policymakers throughout the year. Stanford King Center faculty affiliates are welcome to nominate distinguished visitors from leading academic and research-oriented organizations for periods from one month to one year.
Visitors are provided with office space in the John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn Building and have many opportunities for intellectual exchange with Center faculty affiliates and the broader Stanford research community.
During their stay, visitors participate in seminar series and workshops across campus and disseminate their work through the King Center’s working paper series. They are also invited to engage with the policy and business communities during events held at the King Center.
The time at the King Center is intended to expand a visitor’s network of collaborators and mentors and to generate innovative research that can lead to real-world impacts on global poverty.
Visitors will have no teaching obligations, but will be requested to hold regular office hours for students, publicized in advance, and to engage in their host department and in King Center events.
Please note that applications require a letter of nomination from a King Center faculty affiliate.
For any questions related to the King Center visitors program, please email Deputy Director Jessica Leino at firstname.lastname@example.org.
