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 how challenges such as globalisation, demographics and technological change are affecting labour markets.
Each Fellow will be awarded a bursary of EUR 5,000 to support their research for a maximum period of 12 months (non-renewable). In addition, the OECD will finance the cost of one economy return ticket to Paris (as well as any accommodation costs) for the Fellows to come and present their work at the OECD (or to an alternative location should the OECD Secretariat decide so).
Any PhD student and postdoctoral researcher currently enrolled at university may apply, regardless of the year they are in. 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). The work should focus on OECD countries. Preference will be given to completed drafts and work with a cross-country dimension. This year the OECD is particularly interested in work which explores the effect of artificial intelligence on labour markets.
