Applications are invited for a fully-funded four year PhD studentship to commence in October 2020.

The Project

The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Business and Law, and will be supervised by Dr Wolfgang J. Luhan and Dr Federica Alberti. Dr Sascha Füllbrunn (Radboud University) will be involved as a third, external supervisor.

Successful applicants will receive a bursary to cover tuition fees at the UK/EU rate for three years and a stipend in line with the RCUK rate (£15,009 for 2019/2020). As part of the bursary the Faculty of Business and Law may fund fieldwork expenses (currently £2,000) over the total period of PhD study. We also offer funding to attend conferences (currently £550), training (currently £450), and a work-based placement (currently a maximum of £3,000 tied up to the period of 12 weeks).

The work on this project could involve:

  • research design and project management
  • theoretical modelling
  • experimental design and implementation
  • quantitative data analysis – econometrics and non-parametric inference tests
