ORG- Overseas Development Institute (ODI)
Closing Date- 11th December, 2019

Overseas Development Institute (ODI) is an independent, global think tank, working for a sustainable and peaceful world in which every person thrives. They harness the power of evidence and ideas through research and partnership to confront challenges, develop solutions and create change.

1. The ODI Fellowship Scheme is open to candidates of all nationalities who have a master’s degree or PhD in economics, statistics or a related field. Suitable specialized qualifications at postgraduate level include 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. The ODI Fellowship Scheme Posts Fellows under two streams; economics and statistics, and candidates can apply under one or both of the Fellowship streams provided they have the right qualifications.
2. Applicants must be willing to commit to a two-year posting in any of the countries that participate in the Scheme. Applications are strengthened by a demonstrable interest in development, relevant work or voluntary experience in a developing country, language competence in French, Portuguese or Swahili, and strong IT skills. The Scheme regularly attracts approximately equal numbers of male and female candidates.

How to apply
1. They interview short-listed candidates in February at ODI in London, before making either firm or conditional offers to the successful candidates.
2. Between March and June, we visit participating countries to discuss the candidates and placement details with host governments, before allocating candidates to posts in June. As far as possible, we aim to give governments their preferred candidates.
3. Newly-recruited Fellow participate in a briefing session at the ODI office in July which includes the opportunity to hear form current and former Fellows. Fellows are then expected to take up their posts between august and October.
