We are currently inviting applications from excellent UK/EU and International students for a PhD in Economics funded by the Economic and Social Research Council as part of the South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS[ http://www.reading.ac.uk/graduateschool/funding-and-fees/gs-senss-info.aspx/]) Doctoral Training Partnership.

Interested candidates can find information about our areas of research expertise through consulting the websites of our department. The Department of Economics (see https://research.reading.ac.uk/economics/) concentrates primarily on applied research, but with strong theoretical and empirical foundations, of direct relevance to economic policy formation at local, national and international levels. Our research clusters and research centres reflect the areas of research strength of our staff and postgraduate students. We invite applications from candidates with research interests relevant to these fields of economics. Research clusters cover the fields of behavioural economics, development economics, sport economics, business economics and finance, and labour and household economics. We host two research centres: the economic analysis research group (EARG) and the Centre for Institutions and Economic History. We also have strong links to the Global Development Research Division (https://www.reading.ac.uk/research/themes/theme-prosperity-resilience/rd-global-development.aspx) through our work on development economics and we are part of the University’s Prosperity and Resilience research theme. Over the past years we have been hosting various research workshops in the area of Experimental and Behavioural Economics, and Football Economics. We also work closely with major international agencies, from the World Bank to the European Commission.
