Deadline: 30th September 2018.
The Visiting Scholars Programme gives qualified scholars an opportunity to research topics related to development and/or global economic issues, and to participate in UNU-WIDER activities.
Scholars typically spend a 2-3 months ‘sabbatical’ at UNU-WIDER. During this time they prepare one or more papers to be considered for publication in the WIDER working paper series, and present a seminar in their field of research.
Applicants should have a PhD degree in economics or a development-related discipline. A good publication record is an added advantage. Applications from suitably qualified early-career, female, and developing country researchers are particularly encouraged.
We prefer applicants whose research overlaps with the current research programme, but we remain open to proposals on all aspects of development.
UNU-WIDER provides medical insurance (for medical and hospital services resulting from sickness and accident during your stay at UNU-WIDER), and a monthly stipend of EUR 2,650 as a contribution towards travel, visa, accommodation and other out-of-pocket expenses. Visiting scholars may apply for a supplementary grant to cover high travel costs (incl. visa) if they exceed EUR 1,200 (lowest economy class fare). The programme does not cover expenses related to dependents.
UNU-WIDER only receives online applications for the Visiting Scholars Programme once each year.
Application Deadline: 30 September 23:59 UTC+3.
