The Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES), Stockholm University, offers graduate students the opportunity to write their doctoral thesis at the Institute.
The faculty at the IIES guarantees PhD supervising and the graduate students can benefit from what we think is a stimulating research environment. The IIES will also assist the students in finding financing, in the form of a tax free grant.

We seek to fill vacancies beginning fall term 2020. The deadline for applications is June 8 and the application, including enclosures, must have reached the IIES by that date. 

The complete application should include the following:

  • Application letter stating what position you are applying for
  • CV
  • Detailed transcripts of undergraduate and graduate courses including grades
  • Written work (C-uppsats or term paper)
  • A research statement, or an indication of what type of research you plan to pursue

Applicants should have completed most of the course work on the PhD level.
