The OECD<http://www.oecd.org/about> is a global economic forum working with 35 member countries and more than 100 emerging and developing economies to make better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The Organisation provides a unique forum in which governments work together to share experiences on what drives economic, social and environmental change, seeking solutions to common problems.

The Thomas J. Alexander Fellowship Programme<http://www.oecd.org/edu/thomasjalexanderfellowship.htm> will support individuals in conducting quantitative, evidence-based research on education, particularly in emerging economies, and in linking that research to education policy and practice.

Fellows will be selected among individuals working at research institutions, government agencies or professional organisations. Candidates with a doctoral degree, who are familiar with quantitative research methods and the use of large-scale surveys, and who have published work in scientific journals are encouraged to apply. Selected fellows will be invited to work at the OECD headquarters in Paris for a period of three months or more.

Research proposals will be selected on the basis of their originality, potential and scientific rigour. All policy-relevant topics will be considered, particularly those focusing on equality of opportunity.

The programme, named after the former director of the OECD?s Education, Employment, Labour and Social Affairs department, will provide funding for one year, including time spent at OECD headquarters in Paris. Fellows will be expected to produce a publishable research paper or report at the end of their fellowship. Fellows will work in close collaboration with OECD analysts.
