About the scholarship

We are announcing two scholarships related to two specific topics:

  1. Alternative work and effects on employment, wages and welfare.
  2. Technological change and effects on employment, wages and welfare.

These topics are part of two projects funded by the Norwegian Research Council.

The Institute for Social Research will provide an office if possible. The awarded students will get a supervisor from the institute, access to data and statistical software, and will have the opportunity to participate in the research environment at Institute for Social research.

About the application

Application is sent via JobbNorge's recruitment portal: Applicationform scholarship
