In the 2018 round, holders of a Master’s degree can apply for research positions related to the following cross-cutting themes in the ISS research programme Global Development and Social Justice:
ISS has a clear preference to recruit PhD students who are working on one of these themes from an interdisciplinary approach to development research, and favour proposals that speak to more than one of the four current research lines of the ISS research programme.
The PhD fellowships are for a maximum period of four years, starting in 2018.
PhD students will receive a fellowship of approximately €1,750 net per month, plus an additional allowance to cover the costs of their field work, which normally takes place during the second year into the PhD programme.
The PhD fellowships are available only for citizens of countries that are not part of the European Economic Area. Candidates from African, low-income or low-middle-income countries are especially encouraged to apply.
