Internship at the QoG Institute

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.

Fall 2019


We are currently looking for interns for Fall 2019 for a duration of 10  or 20 weeks with start date on either 3 September or 1 November.

The internship provides opportunities to obtain practical experience in working with various research projects within academia in an international environment. Internship tasks will vary in terms of current project’s needs but every internship will give the student possibility to:

- experience the day-to-day work at the Institute

- participate in seminars and other events organized by the institute and att the department of Political Science

- assist with data collection, research summaries, literature reviews

- assist with administrative tasks


We only accept students currently enrolled in a master’s program. 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. The working language is English. The internship is unpaid but students will receive academic credits.


To apply, please send your CV and a cover letter to tove.wikehult@gu.se

Please state the desired start date.
