The Visiting Fellowships Programme at TMCD is aimed to post-doctoral scholars and professional academics researching critical issues of technology and management for development faced by public and private policymakers worldwide. We encourage enquires from those who are researching topics strongly relevant to our current research projects. Admission to the Visiting Fellowships Programme is competitive and the TMCD accepts two visiting scholars every year. All the applications will be reviewed and approved by the Oxford Department of International Development Affiliation Committee. As a visiting fellow, you will work in the TMCD office alongside our researchers and participate in our centre's events. Visiting Fellows will be provided with office space. They will also have access to the University’s academic facilities, including libraries, seminars, language laboratories and computer training courses. The fee is £1200 per term.
