PhD Studentships in Economics

University of York - Department of Economics and Related Studies

The Department of Economics and Related Studies at the University of York is pleased to announce that we are now recruiting new PhD students in Economics for next academic year (2018-2019) and some PhD studentships are available:

As one of the largest economics departments in the UK we offer a great diversity of research expertise and research-led teaching. The Department has been constantly ranked top 10 in the UK and top 70 in the world. Our research strategy is founded on six research clusters, Microeconomic Theory, Macro economics and Finance, Econometrics, Applied Microeconometrics, Health Economics, and Economic History, which promote, sustain and monitor research excellence and embrace opportunities for external funding, as well as engagement with research users and impact. Our academic community of staff, students and visitors is both intellectually vibrant and international in perspective. We aim to deliver research excellence via contribution to discipline, research supervision and relevance to the broader economy and society.

Our PhD programme includes some taught PhD modules during their first two years. Nevertheless, the vast majority of a PhD student’s time is devoted to personal research work, which is conducted in regular consultation with the student’s supervisor(s). We are keen that our PhD students be involved in the general research and teaching of the Department. Students are expected to actively participate in seminars and workshops organised by the Department of Economics and to play an active role in the Department research clusters.
