UNU-INRA PhD Internship Programme Education, Green Economy
Position: PhD. Intern
Location: Accra, Ghana
Summary: UNU-INRA, with funding from Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), is undertaking a three-year project entitled “Unleashing the Potential of African Rural Economies through Green Growth”. The project aims to provide empirical evidence on how green growth strategies can, amongst others, influence employment, income generation, competitiveness and social inclusion in rural Africa under four thematic areas:

  1. Green business opportunities in rural Africa
  2. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and resource efficiency, productivity and resilience in rural Africa
  3. Rural SMEs and ecosystem services
  4. Institutions and governance for environmentally-friendly business practices.
Who should apply? Applicants should be African nationals and must be enrolled in a doctoral programme, most preferably at the later stage of the PhD programme. They should be able to conduct high-quality research. UNU-INRA accepts both Anglophone and Francophone applicants. However, candidates should be fluent in oral and written English or French, as their case may warrant. While there are no restrictions with respect to the applicant’s areas of study, these must be clearly linked to addressing the critical issues related to green growth in rural Africa.
Application deadline: 31 May 2015 for the academic years 2015–2016.
