    The UNU-WIDER PhD Research Internship Programme aims to provide doctoral degree students registered at universities and similar research institutions the opportunity to utilise the resources and facilities available at UNU-WIDER for their PhD thesis research. In addition, it is anticipated that the successful candidates will produce papers suitable for publication in the Research Paper series and elsewhere, and will work jointly with UNU-WIDER researchers in areas of mutual interest.

    Applicants should:

    • be currently enrolled into a PhD programme
    • have shown ability to conduct research on developing or transition economies (Candidates working in other social sciences may apply but should keep in mind that UNU-WIDER is an economics-focused institute.)
