CEoG Fellowship: staff support to chief economic advisors
The Africa Fellowship Program hosted by the World Bank's Offce of the Chief Economist, Africa Region, targets young and talented African economists who are either close to completion, or have recently received their PhDs. CVs and contact details of the shortlisted candidates are kept in a database which is a useful resource for identifying and recruiting talented African economists for the CEoG Fellowship.
CEoG offers two different forms of staff support to advisors:
To support chief economic advisors and their units with additional skills and capacity in their economic policy responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, advisors may request support to hire “Rapid-response Fellows”. These will be consultants hired on a flexible basis to allow advisors to quickly scale up capacity. The CEoG Secretariat can cover salary costs of selected fellows.
The “Rapid-response Fellows” could be adapted to the given circumstances by starting as a virtual program and providing virtual capacity support to advisors and their units.
CEoG Presidential Fellows
Fellows can also be hired for longer term appointments. These CEoG Fellows will be young African economists, selected from a highly competitive international talent pool, who can work directly with the advisor. They will be expected to apply their analytical skills to policy issues under the advisors supervision for 1-2 years. The CEoG Secretariat can cover the salary costs of selected fellows.
