A PhD is a postgraduate doctoral degree, where you write a dissertation within (3 or) 4 years. PhD students do novel research, publish papers in the international literature, go to conferences, follow a few courses (40 ECTS) and teach (about 20% of your time). In order to apply for a PhD project or position at Erasmus School of Economics you should have an MPhil, MSc or MA degree in Economics, Econometrics, Business or a related field (depending on the PhD project).

Are you in the last year of your Bachelor or a (pre-)Master student and do you want to learn more about a PhD? Join us at our yearly PhD Information session! PhD positions at Erasmus School of Economics are available at the Tinbergen Institute (TI) and the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM). In collaboration with the Econometric Institute, FAECTOR organises a special information session to inform you about the possibilities of doing a PhD at Erasmus.
Issues that will be discussed are: What is a PhD? How can I do a PhD? What is being expected of me as a PhD student? Prof. dr. Richard Paap (Econometric Institute) will explain the steps of doing a PhD and the requirements needed. In addition, two current PhD candidates (econometricians) talk about their work. There will be plenty of room for asking questions while enjoying a cup of tea or coffee.
The PhD information session will take place in November 2020. The exact day and location will be announced soon.
