ERF Affiliation

The ERF offers three categories of affiliation: Research Fellows, Research Associates and Senior Associates. Each category of affiliation is associated with different acceptance criteria as well as rights and responsibilities.


ERF Affiliation categories

Research Associates

This category of researchers is designed to attract relatively young scholars in the region. Research Associates are promising scholars who are likely to benefit from and contribute to ERF activities. They have a PhD in economics or related field, and are engaged in research.

Research Associate Selection

1. Eligibility for consideration requires that:

  • The candidate should originally be from the ERF region. 
  • The candidate must have a PhD or an equivalent degree.
  • The candidate should be a promising researcher in economics or closely related fields.
  • The candidate must submit a letter of intent accompanied by a full CV including list of publications and research activities.
  • The candidate should have completed no more than 10 years after obtaining their PhD at the time of appointment. Active participation in ERF activities is desired.
2. The Advisory Committee has the right to reco mmend candidates for RA for a term less than five years if they see fit, after which the RA should meet the conditions required by the Advisory Committee and endorsed by the Board of Trustees before being granted the rest of the five year term.

3. Research Associates who were approved for a five year term have the right to request an upgrade to Research Fellowship directly without new nomination after two years of their appointment as RA. The Advisory Committee will review their request and will apply the same criteria for Research Fellowship, and provide its recommendations to the Board of Trustees for final approval.


Research Fellows

Research Fellows are ERF’s core constituency of researchers. They are highly qualified economists from the region who are engaged in front-line research in their areas of specialization, with published output in refereed journals and books. Research Fellows play an important role in ongoing ERF activities such as electing the Board of Trustees, nominating new Fellows, developing and leading ERF research programs, refereeing papers, organizing meetings, and contributing to publications. Fellows are nominated by peers, screened by ERF's Advisory Committee and approved by the Board of Trustees.

Research Fellow Selection


Eligibility for consideration requires that:

  • The candidate should originally be from the ERF region.
  • The candidate must have a PhD or an equivalent degree.
  • The candidate should be a researcher in economics or closely related fields.
  • The candidate must have at least two articles published in refereed journals cited in the Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) or equivalents in languages other than English.
  • The candidate should provide evidence of continued research activity.
  • The candidate must submit a letter of intent accompanied by a full CV including list of publications and research activities.
  • Active participation in ERF activities is desired.


 
Senior Associates

This category of affiliation was developed in response to the need for building bridges between research outcomes and policymaking in the region. Senior Associates are accomplished professionals from the region whose past research credentials and present position of influence provide an essential channel of communication with the policymaking community. Senior Associates are approved by the Board of Trustees. They are non-voting members of the ERF constituency.
