The overseas Development Institute is inviting applications for the 2020-2022 Fellowship Scheme. The deadline is December 11th, 2019.
ODI’s prestigious Fellowship Scheme gives postgraduate economists and statisticians the chance to work in developing country public sectors as local civil servants on two-year contracts.
The Scheme has two objectives:
- to provide developing country governments with high-calibre junior economists and statisticians where there are gaps in local capacity;
- and to give postgraduate economists and statisticians practical work experience in a developing country
The ODI Fellowship Scheme is highly competitive and extremely prestigious. ODI Fellows have gone on to make successful careers in the World Bank, the IMF, the UK’s DFID and a wide range of public and private sector organisations. ODI seeks candidates with
- excellent academic qualifications
- a sound grasp of applying economic and statistical theory to real world problems
- an ability to communicate economic and statistical ideas to non-specialists
- and a willingness to integrate into what are often very different cultural and bureaucratic environments.
Applicants will need to have completed their postgraduate degree by the time postings commence.
The Scheme is open to candidates of all nationalities provided they have a master’s degree or PhD in economics, statistics or a related discipline. Postings are determined primarily by the needs of partner governments rather than the preferences of candidates themselves.
