The scholarship allows researchers to spend up to 6 months at the institute developing new projects in collaboration with Beijer researchers. The institute is based at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm, Sweden and has a small staff of researchers who work on a variety of ecological-economics issues. The Beijer Institute’s major objectives are to carry out research and stimulate cooperation to promote a deeper understanding of the interplay between ecological systems and social and economic development.
We welcome candidates who can collaborate on research relevant to at least one of the Institute’s in-house researchers and that can be applied to their home country. Methods and topics of interest include for example: quasi experimental research designs to study causal impacts of policies or economic activities on the environment; and experimental approaches to study human behavior in relation to environmental change or use of natural resources.
It is intended for early-career researchers in environmental economics from developing regions of the world who already have a PhD or are currently enrolled in a PhD program and will finish within 1-2 years. Preference is given to researchers affiliated with four regional environmental economics networks—CEEPA, EEPSEA, LACEEP, and SANDEE—and the EfD centers.
How to apply
The Scholarship is primarily intended for researchers from the Regional Networks in Environmental Economics, CEEPA, EEPSEA, LACEEP, SANDEE, who have already successfully completed a network-funded project or who are in the process of developing a paper from their project.
The institute is now accepting applications from researchers who are interested in spending up to 6 months at the institute in 2018 or 2019 during the periods January– June or August – December. Applicants should e-mail a document containing the following information to Christina Leijonhufvud (Beijer administrator: firstname.lastname@example.org) by December 13, 2017
