“We are very pleased to be able to announce new research opportunities at Devpolicy for emerging scholars of PNG and the Pacific. With funding generously provided by an anonymous donor, we are able to invite applications to become a Greg Taylor Scholar. Becoming a Greg Taylor scholar will entitle the successful applicant to undertake research at the ANU Crawford School as part of the Development Policy Centre for a period of 2 to 3 months on a topic relating to the economic development of PNG and the Pacific. The fellowship will cover your travel and living costs. Applications are invited from students already studying at the ANU or elsewhere in Australia, and from new and emerging scholars in the area of economics in the Pacific and PNG. Please send your CV and a cover letter indicating possible areas of research interest as well as any queries to Macarena.Rojas@anu.edu.au. Timing is flexible.
The scholarships are named in honour of Greg Taylor AO, whose former positions include: Executive Director of the IMF for both Australia and PNG, Secretary of various Australian Government Departments, advisor to the PNG Treasury Secretary, Chairman of the PNG Superannuation Task Force, and a Director of PNG’s largest superannuation fund.”
