IUSSP Population, Ethics, and Human Rights Fellowship 2022

The IUSSP Scientific Panel on Population Perspectives and Demographic Methods to Strengthen Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Systems, jointly with the Institute on Inequalities in Global Health (USC IIGH), University of Southern California (United States), Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WiSER), University of Witwatersrand (South Africa) and Initiative for Social and Economic Rights (ISER) (Uganda), is issuing a global call for applications to host 3 early career research/practitioner professionals for a 12-month period.

The Fellowship requires a full-time commitment during a 12-month residence period — Fellows will be hosted for 6 months at WiSER, Johannesburg, and 6 months at ISER, Uganda (fellowship extension beyond 12 months is subject to available funding).

The Fellowship Program will include support for individual and group research projects, interactive dialogues, seminars, and research/practitioner workshops that seek to unpack interdisciplinary perspectives with a particular focus on emerging challenges in low- and middle-income countries. Fellows will be supported by the IUSSP Scientific Panel and the partner institutions  


  • Applications will be accepted from low- and middle-income countries from different geographic regions and disciplinary expertise and supported to become a cohort of thought leaders in this emerging field, including support for multidisciplinary collaboration.
  • Fellows will be hosted at WiSER and ISER, so their residential fellowship will include direct study of and engagement with contemporary issues in South Africa and Uganda, as a complement to their own studies or areas of work  

Educational Requirements

  • Either a completed Ph.D. or at least 3-years of professional experience in the field of legal identity, global health, human rights, population studies, or related fields such as social sciences, law, and public policy.
