The ODI Fellowship Scheme

The ODI Fellowship Scheme is now open for applications. The Scheme places young and highly motivated economists and statisticians in public sector posts in developing country governments on two-year contracts. The two streams we are recruiting for are Economics and Statistics. Applicants can apply for either of these streams provided they are suitably qualified.

ODI Fellows work 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. The scheme currently has over 120 Fellows in 32 countries, mostly low-income or high poverty countries.
