Open to nationals of non-OECD countries
16 Nov 2015
Work permit : Not-Required
Stipend will be provided
Applications are invited from nationals of non-OECD countries for a number of two-year fellowships to work on global governance and the role of developing and emerging countries in the world political economy. Between three and five such fellowships will be awarded to start on 1 September 2016, for a year at the Global Economic Governance Programme, University College, Oxford followed by a year at Niehaus Centre for Globalization and Governance, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University. Fellows will be provided with appropriate stipends sufficient to cover full living costs. The objective of the programme is to contribute to the training of a network of scholar practitioners who will help devise innovative strategies to enhance the value of global institutions to the people of developing countries. Global institutions are vital to promoting a fair, just, equitable and efficient world economy, yet to fulfill this potential they must be better-aligned with the interests of people in developing countries. Nationals of developing countries who combine in-depth local knowledge with global awareness and perspective are best placed to devise strategies to accomplish this goal. The Global Leaders Fellowship Programme therefore seeks to make a contribution toward increased equity and development by helping to train future leaders who will shape the global political economy.
Internship value: Fellows will be provided with appropriate stipends sufficient to cover full living costs. The second year of the appointment, at Princeton, will be at a level anticipated to be approximately $56,500. The Fellows’ status during the period at University College Oxford will be that of Visiting Post-Doctoral Research Scholar. Fellows will not be employed by the University College but will receive a stipend of £36,309 per annum (a level equivalent to a Research Fellow’s salary) and a University Card which gives full access to University Library and IT Services. In addition, University College will reimburse travel and related relocation expenses required to take up this Fellowship up to £3,000, payable on submission of receipts. Office space, IT and other facilities are provided at Global Economic Governance, University College.
