Oxford Policy Fellowship 2020 for Early/Mid-career Lawyers (Fully-funded)
Deadline: January 31, 2020
The Oxford Policy Fellowship has just launched a call for applications. The Oxford Policy Fellowship provides early/mid-career advisors to ministries, full time, for two years. Fellows are employed by, and directly accountable to, the ministry in which they work.
The Fellowship has two objectives:
- to provide governments with outstanding early/mid-career legal advisors, where there are gaps in local capacity; and
- to give early/mid-career legal professionals valuable work experience.
Because the demand for Oxford Policy Fellows is led by host governments – rather than being imposed by an outside agency – Fellows’ positions are tailored to the host government’s specific need and context, meaning they are more likely to make a real impact. They are currently recruiting for 6-10 Fellows for the 2020 to 2022 cohort.
- Each Fellow will receive a total salary of around £26,000 per annum.
- The Fellowship provides medical insurance and a duty of care for all Fellows as well as a housing financial contribution, if required.
- Open for applicants of all nationalities who are qualified lawyers.
- They are looking for applicants with excellent academic qualifications and depending on the specific post, a law degree, an LLM, a Master’s in Law, a Master’s in Public Policy, or a related field will be required.
- Applicants should have a number of years of relevant legal and/or policy work experience.
- Work or voluntary experience in low- and middle-income countries is preferred.
- Strong interpersonal skills and demonstrated interest in International Development is essential to become a Fellow.
- Applicants must be willing to commit to a two-year posting in any of the participating countries.
