PhD scholarships in Economics at the Department of Business and Economics
Applications are invited for one or more PhD scholarships at the Department of Business and Economics, to be filled as soon as possible. The place of work will be in Odense.
The department carries out research within the following six units: Accounting; Applied Micro; Development Economics; Finance, Econometrics; International Trade and Macro; and Management Science. Furthermore, the department hosts a center for health economics together with the Institute of Public Health.
Only applicants with high grades and a project which falls within one of the above areas will be considered for the position(s). More information about the research activities within the research units can be found at: www.sdu.dk/Om_SDU/Institutter_centre/Ivoe_virksomhedsledelse_og_oekonomi/Forskning/Forskningsenheder.aspx?sc_lang=en.
As part of the PhD programme, an individual education programme within the field of Economics has to be completed. You will be expected to complete a six-month stay at a research institution abroad and, over the period of the programme, to acquire experience of teaching or dissemination activities. You are also expected to participate in the various activities at the department and – apart from your stay abroad – to be regularly present at the department.
The scholarships are available to students who wish to enter the PhD programme in Economics, in the framework of either the 5+3 programme or the 4+4 programme. A 5+3 PhD scholarship is granted to applicants who have completed an MSc in Economics, Mathematics and Economics, Business Administration or similar. The scholarship runs for three years. A scholarship in the 4+4 programme is given to applicants who have passed the fourth year of their Master’s programme or the equivalent. The scholarship runs for a period of four years. For the first two years you will be enrolled in the PhD programme and the Master’s programme parallel to each other. During that period your pay will consist of a combination of SU student grants and salary for job assignments. After obtaining the Master’s Degree, you will enter into a salaried PhD scholarship. Pay and conditions of employment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations).
