Deadline: April 27, 2022
Applications are open for the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) Fellowship Scheme 2022-2024. Established in 1963, the ODI fellowship scheme matches early career economists with government placements around the world.
The ODI fellowship scheme gives early-career economists and statisticians the chance to work as public sector civil servants on two-year contracts in low- and middle-income countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, the Pacific and the Western Balkans. ODI Fellows are typically employed as local civil servants reporting to local managers. Fellows work in a range of institutions from finance and planning ministries to ministries of health and education, as well as central banks, statistics offices, and regulatory bodies.
- Fellows receive a total package equivalent to £21,000 a year (increasing to £23,000 in the second year) plus a housing allowance.
- Open to candidates of all nationalities who have a master’s degree or PhD in economics, statistics or a related field.
- Suitable specialised qualifications at postgraduate level include but aren’t limited to agricultural economics, environmental economics, international economics, health economics, development economics, and econometrics and statistics.
- For those studying for a postgraduate degree at the time of application, the award of a fellowship is conditional upon the successful completion of the postgraduate degree.
Note that the application process will close on April 27, 2022, and applications must be submitted by 23:59 (GMT) to be considered.
