ODI Fellowship Scheme 2019-2021

Applications are open for the 2019-2021 ODI Fellowship Scheme funded by the Overseas Development Institute. The fellowship is open to candidates of all nationalities who have a master’s degree or Ph.D. in economics, econometrics, statistics or a related field. 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-caliber 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 Fellowship Scheme is open to candidates of any nationality.

  • You must also be willing to commit to a two-year posting in any of the participating countries.
  • They are looking for candidates who have a demonstrable interest in development; relevant work or voluntary experience in a developing country, and strong computer skills.
  • Although most Fellowship posts are in English-speaking countries, French, Portuguese or Swahili language skills are an advantage for several posts.
