New academic opportunities from the UNCTAD Virtual Institute - Online course dates revision

Dear Vi friends,

Scholarships to participate in the second edition of the Virtual Institute online course on trade and gender are available for academics, policymakers and representatives of civil society in developing and transition countries involved in research, teaching, policy formulation and implementation, or field work in the area of trade and gender.

Funded by the Government of Finland, the course is based on Volume 1 of the Vi teaching material on trade and gender. The seven-week course, scheduled January 4 to February 21, 2016, particularly encourages applications from qualified women.

Candidates must hold a Master's degree in Economics, Law, Political Science or related area, and have excellent knowledge of English.

Top course graduates will become part of the UNCTAD trade and gender consultancy roster, and may be considered for future assignments in this area and/or participation in intergovernmental meetings on trade and gender organized by UNCTAD.

Candidates must complete the online application process, as well as submit a current CV and nomination letter from their institution by November 15.

Best regards,
