Applications are open for the UNU-WIDER Visiting Scholars Program 2022/2023. 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 United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (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.
They prefer applicants whose research overlaps with UNU-WIDER current research programme, but they remain open to proposals on all aspects of development.
UNU-WIDER only receives online applications for the Program once each year. The deadline for submission of applications is 30 September 23:59 UTC+3.
Selected applicants will be informed by email of the final decision within four weeks of the closing deadline. The selected applicants must confirm their decision to take up UNU-WIDER’s offer two weeks after being contacted.
