Guidelines for CDES Resident and Non-Resident Fellows

The CDES has a growing network of associates at Monash University and externally, both within Australia and internationally. The Centre endeavours to promote a platform for mutually beneficial exchange and engagement around the Centre’s wide range of activities. We welcome as CDES Resident or Non-Resident Fellows researchers and practitioners who can contribute to the Centre's research, engagement and impact goals within the research areas of development economics and sustainability.

Becoming a CDES Fellow has several benefits:

  • Both Resident and Non-Resident CDES Fellows can explore sabbatical opportunities at CDES.
  • You will have access to assistance from CDES to develop joint research projects and engagement initiatives with CDES core staff. In the past, this has included access to seed grant funding and proposal writing support for external grant sources.
  • You can request CDES support for the production of Policy Briefs, blog posts, or other media articles to be featured on the CDES website.
  • Your profile and research may be highlighted on the CDES website. We will always seek your permission before featuring your research.
  • You may contribute working papers to be circulated in the CDES Working Paper Series.

The main distinction between CDES Resident and Non-Resident Fellows is their institutional affiliation. CDES Resident Fellows are drawn from within Monash University, while CDES Non-Resident Fellows come from institutions and entities outside of Monash University.

As CDES Fellows, we hope that you will choose to actively engage with Centre activities such as blog posts, seminars, workshops, webinars as well as potential research collaborations. We further encourage Fellows to indicate their CDES association in research papers and publications (similar to researchers noting their affiliation to e.g., NBER, IZA, CEPR, and J-PAL).
