The Tea Leaf Center
The Tea Leaf Center Co., Ltd. is a social enterprise research and training consulting firm based in Thailand. We support locally-led research by providing tailored coaching and training, on-call support, and platforms to connect researchers.
The Tea Leaf Center was registered as a company limited in Thailand in 2019. Since its formation, the Tea Leaf Center and its directors have conducted evaluations and other research for international and local NGOs and conducted trainings on writing and research for local organizations working in environmental conservation, land rights, public health, migrant education, human rights and other areas. We have also worked with a local university to support quality academic research in Myanmar.
The Tea Leaf Center is hiring a full-time Research Fellow. The Fellow will split their time between an environmental research project (50%) and other Tea Leaf Center projects (50%). There is a possibility of extension based on project funding support. The Fellow will work on data collection in peri-urban spaces in Chiang Mai that includes a mixed methodology approach. It may include desk reviews, key informant interviews, focus group discussions, surveys, and randomized control trials. The position will offer an opportunity for the Fellow to co-publish in research journals and conferences. The position will also support the Tea Leaf Center’s online learning platform and other research training and/or monitoring and evaluation projects.
The position will involve a one-year contract with a three-month probation period. The Research Fellow will be supervised by the Tea Leaf Center and collaborate closely with Chiang Mai University and the University of Hawaii on the environmental research project. Through this position, the Research Fellow will advance their research and training skills, including by analyzing and writing up research results, co-authoring and supporting journal articles, and expanding the Tea Leaf Center online learning platform.
This position will be full-time. The Research Fellow will be based in Chiang Mai but may be required to travel within the region.
The Research Project
The environmental research project under this fellowship is part of a project led by researchers at the University of Hawaii and Chiang Mai University, funded by the US National Science Foundation. The project overall explores the haze and air pollution situation in Chiang Mai from a Science and Technology Studies perspective, looking at sources of air pollution (using GIS), and knowledge generation and usage around air pollution within different communities in Chiang Mai and the connection between urban and rural spaces. The Tea Leaf Center’s portion of the project is still in development, and is led by Jonathan Rhodes, a co-director, who will supervise the Fellow. The data generated for this project will be used for publications co-authored by the Fellow, as well as for Jonathan’s PhD research.
Qualifications (preferred, one or more)
The research fellow will receive monthly pay between 25,000-30,000 baht per month, based on experience and qualifications. The fellow is responsible for any moving expenses. The Tea Leaf Center will support costs of any research-related travel, including transportation, per diem, and accommodation if required for work.
