The UNU-WIDER PhD Internship Programme gives registered doctoral students an opportunity to utilise the resources and facilities at UNU-WIDER for their PhD dissertation or thesis research, and to work with UNU-WIDER researchers in areas of mutual interest. PhD interns typically spend three consecutive months at UNU-WIDER in Helsinki; during that time, they prepare one or more research papers and present a seminar on their research findings. PhD interns may also have the opportunity to publish their research in UNU-WIDER’s working paper series.
– Applicants must be enrolled in a PhD programme and have shown ability to conduct research on developing economies.
– Candidates should be fluent in oral and written English and possess good quantitative and/or qualitative analytical skills.
– Preference is given to applicants who are living or working in developing countries and who are at later stages of the PhD.
The PhD internship includes a travel grant, medical insurance (during your stay at UNU-WIDER), and a monthly stipend of EUR 1,600 to cover living expenses in Helsinki.
The application is 1 September.
