Applications invited by the United Nations University (UNU) for the UNU-Wider PhD Research Internships. The UNU-WIDER PhD Research Internship Programme aims to provide PhD students registered at a university and similar research institutions the opportunity to utilize the resources and facilities available at UNU-WIDER for their PhD thesis research.

Internship details:

UNU-WIDER provides a travel grant, medical insurance, and a monthly stipend of EUR 1500 to cover living expenses in Helsinki during the period of their internship. Health insurance should be arranged privately by the candidates. The programme does not cover expenses related to dependents.


  • 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.
  • Preference is given to applicants who are living or working in developing countries and who are at later stages of the PhD.
  • Applicants whose research overlaps with UNU's current research programme will be given preference.  But UNU will remain open to proposals on all aspects of development.

How to apply:

Interested candidates should submit the completed application forms accompanied by a free format letter of reference in English from the candidate's PhD supervisor.

Important dates:

Deadlines for submission of applications are 31 March and 30 September each year.
