Apply to work in IA through the TTF Young Professional Development Program

We invite young professionals who have completed masters or doctoral studies in social sciences in OECD countries (preferably within the last three years) to apply for a six-month paid work placement opportunity at Institute Alternative. During this period they are expected to engage in ongoing research projects and develop concrete policy products, mentored by our research coordinator.

This opportunity is provided in the framework of the Think Tank Fund’s Young Professional Development Program, which aims at providing young people who have just completed their studies in social sciences abroad with the chance to gain experience working in renowned research centers in the countries of their origin.

There are 26 think tanks interested to host young professionals in the framework of the TTF Young Professional Development Program (among which is IA). Young professionals can choose from this list of 26 host organizations and TTF will, after evaluating their applications, financially support up to 15 “returnees”.

If you fulfill the requirements listed in the Call for Applications and are interested in working with us, please contact us at:, in order to discuss potential research topic.

Please note that only short-listed candidates will be invited for an interview. The selected candidate will, with our help, prepare the application for the TTF.

The deadline for submission of applications to the TTF is August 4, 2014, while the individual programs at hosting organizations will start from November 2014.

Detailed info on the program and conditions for applying are available here.
