Ph.D. Position in Applied Econometrics
The group Applied Econometrics (Prof. Kurt Schmidheiny) is looking for a highly talented candidate to join the PhD program in Applied Economics at the University of Basel Graduate School of Business and Economics (GSBE).
Our group focuses on the application of microeconometric methods to policy relevant questions. Our research emphasis lies on tax competition, fiscal federalism, and urban economics. More broadly, we study questions in a variety of fields, including public economics, labor economics, international economics, and demography.
Accepted candidates are encouraged to spend their first year completing graduate level coursework in economics (e.g., the Gerzensee Doctoral Program). The thesis is to be completed within four to five years. Moreover, students will support the group in their teaching activities. Start date is flexible, ideally by January 2020. The position will remain open until we have found a suitable candidate.
A successful candidate should have finished a master's degree in economics with excellent grades by the time she/he starts the PhD program. We expect fluency in English and very good writing skills.
