The Department of Economics, Management and Statistics (DEMS) of the University of Milan-Bicocca invites applications to its PhD Program in Economics and Statistics (ECOSTAT) for the academic year 2019-20 (XXXV cycle). The PhD Program is articulated in two curricula, Economics (ECO) and Statistics (STAT). The length of the PhD Program is four years, starting in November 2019. The precise starting date of the Program will be announced in due course.
We offer at least eight fellowships (for a period of four years) to the highest ranked applicants. Each fellowship pays a grant of a minimum of € 16.200 (gross income) per year. The monthly allowance can be increased up to 50% for our PhD students visiting academic or scientific institutions abroad. The number of scholarships may increase if sponsorships on specific research projects become available. There will also be allowances (research funds) for short-period mobility (from the second year).
Additional scholarships and positions are also available. In particular, one additional scholarship is offered to excellent candidates willing enter the PhD program in order to develop a dissertation project focused on European studies.
The selection procedure is regulated by the official Call for Applications (Bando di Concorso), which is expected to be published in the Italian Official Journal (Gazzetta Ufficiale) after the acknowledgment issued by Italian Governmental agencies, during the period 15th May 2019 – 14th June 2019, and also posted on the PhD School’s and on the PhD program’s websites. The official Call for Applications contains detailed information on: i) the documents which each candidate has to submit; ii) structure, contents and timing (period July 2019) of the entrance examination; iii) description of the projects related to the additional scholarships and positions.
