The Chair of Innovation and Intellectual Property Policy at the College of Management of Technology (CDM) at Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, offers a 4-year, fully funded position for a PhD student.
The successful candidate will work under the direct supervision of Prof. de Rassenfosse (http://www.gder.info ) on a project funded by the European Commission’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (MSCA-ITN-POLISS). This project involves studying various empirical aspects related to innovation policy in Europe, with a focus on smart specialization.
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in economics or finance (advanced master from a leading university preferred) and a keen interest in innovation studies. Candidates who lack such a background will be expected to complete the Gerzensee doctoral programme. Exceptional candidates with a MSc in a related discipline (physics, mathematics, management, etc.) will also be considered. The start date is 15 September, 2020.
Please submit a one-page cover letter, record of transcripts, CV and contact details of three referees to Prof. de Rassenfosse at email@example.com . Candidates who are then formally encouraged to apply will be expected to submit their applications to the EDMT doctoral school , which involves submitting GRE and TOEFL test scores. The deadline for submissions is 15 January and 15 April, 2020.
