4) PhD in Economics offered by the University of Insubria
Department of Economics, University of Insubria (Varese, Italy), funded PhD Studentship for the Program in Methods and Models for Economic Decisions
Preliminary applications are invited for the 3 years PhD program in Methods and Models for Economic Decisions organized by the Department of Economics, University of Insubria (Varese, Italy).
The PhD program in Methods and Models for Economic Decisions trains young researchers to master the variety of theoretical and applied approaches that are used in economics and management theory for analysing decision-making processes. Consumers and producers, workers and firms, banks and managers, households and policy makers continuously make relevant economic decisions. Economists and management theorists are interested in understanding, predicting, or modifying the processes underlying these decisions.
In the first year, the students will acquire a broad set of research skills in model construction and data analysis, and thus become capable of understanding the complex phenomena related to decision-making in a multidisciplinary perspective. PhD students will then focus on a specific field of analysis and develop their own research program under the supervision of a faculty member.
The courses are taught in English, and the program lasts three years.
At the end of the third year students submit their PhD dissertation, which is usually made of three research papers.
For the academic year 2015-2016 a total of six scholarships for PhD students are available. Each scholarship amounts to approx. € 13,600 gross per year (12,500 net) and is paid on a monthly basis. The amount of the scholarship is increased by 50% when a student visits foreign universities and institutions. Additional funding opportunities include employment within the Department of Economics at the University of Insubria as a teaching/research assistant. PhD students are also entitled to research funds they can use for their research and participation to conferences.
The official call for application to the PhD program in Methods and Models for Economic Decisions will be posted on the websites of the University of Insubria in late Spring 2015 .
