Funding Opportunities for PhD Training in Economics and Econometrics at Queen Mary, University of London.

Applications for full-time enrollment in the PhD in Economics and Econometrics programme are now invited for entry in September 2012.
The PhD programme is housed within the School of Economics and Finance at Queen Mary, part of the University of London. The School of Economics and Finance at Queen Mary is one of the leading research departments in the UK, and was ranked sixth in the nation-wide 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).

DESCRIPTION: The PhD in Economics and Econometrics programme is a full-time four year programme and aims to produce top quality researchers that can go on to successful careers in academia, policy institutions or the financial industry. The first year of the programme is primarily focused on advanced economics and econometrics
course training, although students have to present an original piece of research at an internal conference at the end of the year. The remaining three years are spent writing the dissertation.

QUALIFICATIONS: Successful applicants are expected to have a strong analytical and quantitative background. An (expected) MSc degree from a good programme in economics, econometrics or a related subject is
also generally a requirement.

The School offers very competitive full financing for all admitted candidates. Fully funded teaching assistant positions involve a manageable teaching allocation of classes in the School's undergraduate programmes. The School also offers research scholarships
funded by the ESRC through the Queen Mary - Goldsmiths joint doctoral training centre - details at:
