The PEP Research Fellows in Education Program 2024 for young African researchers

May 15, 2024

Apply for this job

Bursary Description

Application Deadline: June 15, 2024

Applications are now open for the 2024 PEP Research Fellowship. The Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) invites researchers based in low- and middle-income countries to apply to join the organisation as Research Fellows (RF). PEP Research Fellows are senior, Southern-based scholars chosen through a competitive process to participate in critical PEP research, training, and policy activities. The PEP Research Fellows program aims to enhance links among South-based scholars so that they can collectively contribute a Southern viewpoint to the global development research agenda.


The 2024 recruitment is open to all researchers living and working in low- or middle-income countries. Priority areas for recruitment this year include:

  • Asia and Middle East/North Africa
  • Expertise in gender, health, entrepreneurship or multidisciplinary approaches

Female candidates are strongly encouraged as PEP strives to maintain a gender balance in its RF program. Researchers residing in a developed country and/or members of PEP staff (excluding consultants) are not eligible to be a PEP Research Fellow.

How to Apply
To apply, please:

  1. Send a one-page motivation letter outlining your specific goals for a first three-year mandate (see RF evaluation criteria below) to [email protected].
  2. Ask two references to send letters of support directly to [email protected].
  3. Register on the PEP website, complete your profile and upload your CV. If you are already registered, ensure that your profile and CV are up-to-date (log in and select “Update my profile”).
