CGD Visiting Policy Fellowship – China Initiative

The Center for Global Development (CGD) is seeking to promote research on China’s global role as a development policy actor by attracting a mid-career or senior-level policy and/or research professional to work at the Center for up to two years. As an independent, non-profit research organization based in Washington, D.C., CGD works to reduce global poverty and improve lives through innovative economic research that drives better policy and practice by the world's top decision makers.

The visiting policy fellow will have the opportunity to be part of CGD’s rich intellectual life while working on an independent policy project designed to overcome a clearly identified development policy obstacle. Relevant research topics for this fellowship could include: Chinese official finance, including Chinese foreign aid; Chinese trade and investment policies as they affect developing countries; China’s multilateral engagement; and the institutional architecture associated with China’s international engagement.

Experience

Candidates should be mid-career or senior policy and research professionals (minimum seven to ten years’ work experience) with solid track records and demonstrated leadership on some aspect of China’s role as a development policy actor. Additional private sector, multilateral and other development experience is welcome.

Stipend

Competitive stipend. The successful applicant’s current employer will be requested to grant leave during the period of the fellowship. Stipends may not be used to fund ongoing research or other projects already underway.

Application procedures

CGD is now accepting applications for a fellowship starting sometime in 2019. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, resume and one-page project proposal. Project proposals should explain how the candidate will use his/her time, what issue(s) pertaining to Chinese development policy will be addressed, and how the project will affect real-world development policy. Proposals will be evaluated for relevance, originality, practical application and likelihood of completion within the time frame of the fellowship.

CGD is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All persons regardless of race, color, creed, national origin ancestry, sex, marital status, disability, religious or political affiliation, age or sexual orientation shall have equal access to positions, limited only by their ability to do the job.
