Journal of African Economies, Visiting Fellows Programme

Journal of African Economies Fellowship Alumni Network (JAEFAN)

Past AERC/JAE Fellows

Objectives

The Journal of African Economies Visiting Scholars Programme provides for short-term visiting Fellowships to the Centre for the Study of African Economies at the University of Oxford. The programme enables fellows to visit Oxford and work on a publishable journal article from their recent research. Fellows are members of the Journal of African Economies Fellowship Alumni Network (JAEFAN).

The Fellowships are usually offered for Hilary term ie. January to March. The timing of this is for two primary reasons: Fellows will be able to attend the annual CSAE conference (in late March), and also to attend all lectures on the MSc in Economics for Development. This will provide Fellows with an opportunity to engage with students and lecturers at Oxford on a range of topics in development economics, and it is anticipated that Fellows will provide valuable input to students and lecturers for class discussions. In addition, Fellows are expected to attend all CSAE seminars and to present at least one seminar on their own research while at Oxford.

It is intended that the Fellowship will support independent research and study while at Oxford. Visiting fellows will interact with scholars and participate in the intellectual life of the Centre, the Department of Economics and St Antony's College.

Visiting Fellows will be provided with a desk in shared office space, and with access to the internet and University libraries. Accommodation will be provided at St Antony's College, as well as membership of the St Antony's College Senior Common Room. A stipend will be provided to cover the cost of a return flight and the cost of living while in Oxford.

  1. Hold a PhD in Economics;
