About UNESCO MGIEP’s Junior Research Fellowship
UNESCO MGIEP’s Junior Research Fellows Programme provides young academics with the opportunity to conduct research relevant to the main thematic focus areas of the MGIEP, in co-operation with the MGIEP Programmes, and to gain practical on-the-job training and relevant experience in international educational development within an UN agency.
A typical profile of a potential MGIEP Junior Research Fellow is a person who has just completed PhD in a relevant field and is interested in doing work related to the Institute’s activities.
The Junior Research Fellows Programme is designed to deliver two outcomes: influence a global rethink on the education process by producing seminal papers on innovating education for humanity. These papers will be part of the MGIEP’s Working Paper Series. The second outcome will be enhancing programmatic activities of the Institute by contributing concretely to the expected outputs of MGIEP in alignment with UNESCO’s Programme and Budget.
UNESCO MGIEP is undertaking a state of the art review of socio-emotional learning for school children. We are thus seeking young academics with a background in applied education research in the field of social emotional learning (SEL) in schools.
The primary task would be to build a systematic framework for evaluating the quality of existing SEL programs and apply this framework to identify and rate well-designed, evidence-based SEL programs in the different cultural contexts across the world.
