A number of opportunities are available to individuals who are interested in joining UBC’s School of Public Policy and Global Affairs.
If you are interested in pursuing research on global issues, consider applying to the Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Program (ISGP), offered in collaboration with UBC’s Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. As an ISGP student, you will have the opportunity to conduct advanced issue-based research that not only crosses disciplines and departmental boundaries, but also cultivates new interdisciplinary methods and techniques.
*ISGP students who also apply and are admitted to the Liu Scholars program receive priority for student space at the Liu Institute.
Established in 2009, the Liu Scholars program brings together exceptional students interested in using their research and disciplinary expertise to work on public policy and global issues.
The Liu Lobby Gallery, a space for creative dialogue and expression about global issues, has been curated by various Liu Scholars over the years.
The research contributions of our postdoctoral fellows are indispensable to the UBC community and their chosen fields of study. As a postdoctoral fellow, you will work under the general supervision of a SPPGA faculty member and may assist in supervising graduate students.
If you have completed a doctoral degree and are seeking further training in a particular area of research, speak to a SPPGA faculty member directly about the possibility of a postdoctoral fellowship.
