Jacob van Artevelde PhD studentship in Financial Economics

Cardiff University - Cardiff Business School

Start date: 1 October 2018

Duration: 3 years – 4 Years

PhD Studentship
Applications are invited for the Jacob van Artevelde Scholarship in Financial Economics at Cardiff Business School.

The School runs a 1+1+2 PhD programme where students spend the first two years of their studies undertaking advanced course work: the first at MSc Economics level in a core subject, and the second at MRes in Advanced Economics.

However, for this scholarship there is a preference for a candidate with a good MSc Degree in economics who could be exempt from the first year of study under the programme and proceed directly to the MRes and complete the PhD in three (1+2) years.

As a Cardiff Business School doctoral student, the Jacob van Artevelde Scholar will be joining a vibrant research environment supervised and supported by academics working at the forefront of their disciplines.

Research groups of relevance to the Scholar include:
