PhD positions

Each year the Erasmus School of Economics starts several new PhD research projects with a focus on relevant economic research themes. These projects are fully funded and salaried positions for 3-4 years (depending on pre-education), supervised by a distinguished professor at Erasmus School of Economics. All accepted candidates will have access to excellent research facilities, support programmes and thorough postgraduate training for a successful academic career.

All PhD projects are affiliated with one of Erasmus School of Economics's graduate schools: ERIM or the Tinbergen Institute. Please note that in order to be considered for a PhD position, applicants have to meet all the admission requirement of the affiliated graduate school. An MPhil or Research Master’s degree in Economics, Econometrics, Business, Mathematics or Physics is preferred, but candidates with an MSc or MA degree will also be considered. See the individual project pages for more information.
