External Research Associates include individuals whose primary affiliation is outside of York University, with universities and other educational institutions, governments, the private sector or nongovernmental and not‐for‐profit organizations, and who are actively involved in research on Asia or Asian Diasporas, as defined by the YCAR mandate. They must be undertaking, collaborating in or developing a research project or initiative associated with YCAR and/or the YCAR Faculty Associate supporting the application (which can include active involvement in graduate student research). The External Research Associate category is also open to part-time instructors at York University, and to former graduate associates of YCAR who have completed their programmes at York but wish to stay associated with the Centre. The length of term of an External Research Associate shall be decided on a case-by-case basis and may be renewed at the discretion of the Director in consultation with the Membership Committee.
Please note that this is an uncompensated affiliation.
The application form is available here.
YCAR will contact you after we have received your completed application to confirm receipt and/or if we require additional information before considering your application. All applications go before the YCAR Membership Committee, which meet three times per academic year: 15 April, 15 October, 15 December. Applications will be reviewed shortly after each deadline. Please note that the Membership Committee will not review applications outside of these time periods.
