Future of Work Fellowship Scheme 2018/19, The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Deadline: 14 September 2018.
The OECD Future of Work Fellowship Scheme aims to promote new and innovative doctoral research in the fields of economics, statistics, sociology and other related social sciences which will provide better evidence to help policy makers across OECD countries respond to the following issues:
How globalisation, demographics and technological change are affecting labour markets – including the quantity and quality of jobs that are available, as well as how and by whom they are carried out.
How the demand for skills and skills use are evolving and what can be expected as the digital revolution progresses.
The impact these trends are having on inequality, productivity and growth.
What are the challenges for government policy in the areas of: skills, social protection, active labour market programmes, labour market regulation, and social dialogue?
What are innovative policy tools that can help governments address these challenges and turn them into opportunities and better lives for all?
The Fellowship scheme funds ongoing as well as new research in the above areas – as long as the outputs are delivered within the timeframe set by the Fellowship (12 months starting from the acceptance of the Fellowship offer).
Who is eligible? Any PhD student and postdoctoral researcher currently enrolled at university may apply, regardless of the year they are in. There are no restrictions with regards to nationality, or the location of the institution to which you are affiliated. All research should be written in one of the OECD’s official languages (either English or French). Fellows maintain their affiliation whilst they are completing their Fellowship and are not expected to spend any time at the OECD in Paris (except for when they come to present their work).
