Every year the GLF programme organizes two large events to spur the productive exchange of ideas and create an enduring sense of community.
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; fellowships will be awarded to start in September 2015 for a year’s study at the University of Oxford followed by a year at Princeton University. Post-holders will be provided with appropriate stipends sufficient to cover full living costs. The programme intends to establish a network of leading scholar-practitioners in global governance.
Applicants must be nationals of non-OECD countries (this is a condition stipulated by the donor). They must have completed (or have evidence of imminent completion of) a doctorate in a relevant area. They should also show evidence of outstanding analytical and research skills. In addition, candidates will be required to demonstrate their plans for a clearly articulated research project which is relevant to the Programme’s aims.
The duties and skills required are described in more detail in the further particulars, which also contain details on how to apply.
The closing date for applications is midnight (GMT) on 17 November 2014. Please state where you saw this post advertised.
