PhD interns typically spend 3 consecutive months at UNU-WIDER and are expected to return to their home institution afterwards.
Applicants must be enrolled in a PhD programme and have shown ability to conduct research on developing economies. Candidates working in other social sciences may apply but should keep in mind that UNU-WIDER is an economics-focused institute. Preference is given to applicants who are living or working in developing countries and who are at later stages of the PhD.
UNU-WIDER provides a travel grant to cover the costs of travel to and from the location of your PhD granting institution, medical insurance (for medical and hospital services resulting from sickness and accident during your stay at UNU-WIDER), and a monthly stipend of EUR 1,600 to cover living expenses in Helsinki during the period of their internship. The programme does not cover expenses related to dependents.
The online application form will only become active one month prior to the submission deadline (e.g., application procedures start on 1 March and 1 September of each year).
