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). Find more information about a PhD here

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 the PhD Information session on Monday the 6th of November 2017 from 15.00-16.30 in H10-31! 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. Fok (Econometric Institute and Associate Director of ERIM) 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.
