Our research tackles the complex and persistent challenges of poverty and development. We take a multidisciplinary approach and work with an international network of partners to develop solutions which we actively seek to see applied in development policy and practice.
Our collaboration with researchers, policy makers and international development practitioners help to foster thinkers with well-informed views. Their diverse insights and opinions represent our commitment to advancing knowledge and using rigorous research to find sustainable solutions to international development challenges.
Our Fellows consist of individual researchers working remotely on carrying out research on themes close to those of our programmes. Fellows will be in the network of IDR and will be able to make original contributions to our programmes and thematic areas. They will continue to work or study in their current positions and various locations, but will interact with IDR as a part of the Fellowship.
We are soliciting for young professionals seeking to use their education and skills to address social and economic challenges for underserved populations and desire to engage in an intense professional development experience while applying creative solutions to deepen impact.
This programme is delivered in English only. We are an equal opportunity and affirmative organization so women are strongly encouraged to apply to this programme.
