How to apply

ODI Fellow (2016-18) Peter Judge and colleagues at the Ministry of Tourism, Trade, Commerce and Ni-Vanuatu Business in Vanuatu.


The Fellowship Scheme is open to candidates of any nationality. You must have a master's degree or PhD in economics, econometrics, statistics or a related field. Suitable specialisms include agricultural, environmental, international, health or development economics. You must also be willing to commit to a two-year posting in any of the participating countries.

We 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.
