PhD research internships

The World Institute for Development Economics Research of the United Nations University invites applications for its PhD research internships. These offer registered doctoral students an opportunity to utilise the resources at UNU-WIDER for their PhD dissertation or thesis research, and to work with researchers in areas related to developing economies. The internships typically last from two to three months and take place in UNU-WIDER’s facilities in Helsinki, Finland.
Applicants must be enrolled in a PhD programme and have shown ability to conduct research on developing economies. Fluent oral and written English skills are required. Preference is given to applicants who are living or working in developing countries, and who are at later stages of their PhD. In addition, UNU-WIDER and the African Economic Research Consortium have collaborated to reserve a number of internship positions to economists from African countries.
Internships include a travel grant, medical insurance, and a monthly stipend of €1,500 to cover living expenses in Helsinki.
Deadline information Applications are invited between 1 March and 31 March, and 1 September and 30 September annually. Deadlines on: 30 September 2013, 31 March 2014, and repeated annually.
