The QoG Institute was founded in 2004 by Professor Bo Rothstein and Professor Sören Holmberg. It is an independent research institute within the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg. We are 30 researchers who conduct and promote research on the causes, consequences and nature of Good Governance and the Quality of Government (QoG) - that is, trustworthy, reliable, impartial, uncorrupted and competent government institutions.
While Quality of Government is our common intellectual focal point, we apply a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives.
The main objective of our research is to address the theoretical and empirical problem of how political institutions of high quality can be created and maintained. A second objective is to study the effects of Quality of Government on a number of policy areas, such as health, the environment, social policy, and poverty. We approach these problems from a variety of different theoretical and methodological angles.
We are currently looking for interns for Autumn 2017 with a start date on September 4th or November 13th for a duration of 10 weeks.
We are currently looking for interns for Autumn 2017. We accept students currently enrolled in a master’s program or recent graduates. The internship gives opportunities to obtain practical experience in working with a research project within academia in an international environment.
Internship tasks will vary in terms of current project’s needs. Interns will be asked to help with data collection and research. We are looking for highly motivated, self-driven interns who are interested in Quality of Government as a research area. Knowledge of statistical programs is an asset.
