The Chair of Innovation and Intellectual Property Policy at EPFL, Lausanne, invites applications for a full-time PhD student position funded through an SNSF Ambizione grant. The project will focus on the effect of researcher mobility on research productivity.
We seek a young researcher with a strong background in Economics although other, exceptional, profiles may be considered. As the project relies upon a wide variety of data sets, we expect the student to develop proficiency with Python, databases, and basic data science skills through the course of her or his research, but such skills are absolutely not a prerequisite.
As is typical, the PhD position will span 4 years including mandatory doctoral coursework. Dissertation, coursework, and student projects will all be in English. The successful candidate, regardless of background, will be expected to complete the intensive Gerzensee doctoral program. A starting date of September 15, 2017 is expected, but it may be possible to start as early as June 1, 2017 in the role of Research Assistant.
Please submit your CV for pre-screening to firstname.lastname@example.org your earliest convenience.
To signal your sincere interest, and that you have read this ad carefully, please include in the subject line [PhD position in Economics of Science].
Applicants passing the pre-screening will be asked to submit a formal application by January 15th, 2017 at http://phd.epfl.ch/edmt/admissions.
