We are pleased to announce that the 2022 call for applications of the PhD Program in Economics and Finance at the University of Verona is now open. The Program aims at bringing brilliant students to the international research frontier, and at developing their ability to create their own research contributions.
Five positions are available: four with full scholarships (about 1,600 euros per month) and one without scholarship.
The PhD program in Economics and Finance, offered by the Department of Economics of the University of Verona, aims to train academic and professional figures able to autonomously carry out research in economics and finance at universities, research institutes, consulting firms, public and private companies. In general, PhD graduates in Economics and Finance may undertake job positions requiring critical and problem solving skills, in which to matter are the ability to identify a problem and frame it in a general context, manage and process data through a statistical approach, interpret the findings and communicate concrete suggestions.
The training and research activities are carried out entirely in English. The program is divided into four years, during which the activity of the PhD students is monitored regularly, through individual meetings with the coordinator and seminar activities in which the students become familiar with the presentation and public discussion of their research topics. Over all the four years, PhD students can participate in the scientific events (seminars, workshops) organized by the Department. They have access to a dedicated room, equipped with computers, printers and the university internet network. They are also endowed with their own research funds, to finance participation in conferences and specialization courses, submissions to journals and the purchase of computers or other equipment useful for their research.
