UNU-WIDER Visiting PhD Fellowship
PhD Fellowship Support
Applications now open for the UNU-WIDER Visiting PhD Fellowship Programme.
An opportunity to further your thesis in an international research institute in Helsinki, Finland.
Deadline 31 March 2022.
Our Visiting PhD Fellowship Programme gives registered doctoral students an opportunity to utilize the resources and facilities at UNU-WIDER for their PhD dissertation or thesis research on developing economies, and to work with our researchers in areas of mutual interest. Deadline for applications is 31 March 23:59 UTC+3.
Visiting PhD fellows typically spend three consecutive months at UNU-WIDER before returning to their home institution. During their time in Helsinki, fellows prepare one or more research papers and present a seminar on their research findings. They may also have the opportunity to publish their research in the WIDER Working Paper Series.
After being online in 2020 and 2021, the Visiting PhD Fellowship Programme will take place in Helsinki again (provided it is possible to travel to Finland and work at the office, otherwise it will take place online or in a hybrid mode).
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. Candidates should be fluent in oral and written English and possess good quantitative and/or qualitative analytical skills. Applications from suitably qualified early-career, female, and developing country researchers are particularly encouraged. The programme is especially addressed at researchers at later stages of their PhD.
The Visiting PhD Fellowship Programme is highly competitive and only a limited number of fellows can be accepted. In recent years, one percent of all applications have been successful.
