PhD Program Aix-Marseille School of Economics (AMSE), Aix-Marseille University
PhD in economics
Welcome to the PhD Program of AMSE
The AMSE PhD Program is tailored for talented and passionate students. Our PhD candidates are trained in advanced economic theories and empirical methods, closely supervised by scientifically recognized faculties, and produce frontier research in all fields of theoretical and empirical economics. Our PhD naturally leads to academic jobs as well as to positions in international organizations and in the private sector.
As full members of the research department, our PhD students benefit from AMSE’s dynamic academic environment. They attend our various seminars series, present their work at our PhD brownbag seminar as well as at international conferences, participate to summer schools to acquire skills in their specific fields of specialization, and do visiting research stays in the best international universities. They also benefit from the expertise of AMSE senior faculty members, who are leading researchers working in all areas of economics and publishing their work in the best international journals. Finally, they benefit from interactions with their fellow students from all over the world.
As researchers at the service of society, AMSE PhD students can also disseminate their research through our Sharing department, and in particular through its online media Dialogues Économiques.
AMSE PhD students are based in Marseille or in Aix-en-Provence.
The PhD program at AMSE consists of two parts: first, the one-year ETE Research Master during which students follow advanced coursework in economics and training to research; second, the actual PhD which lasts three to four years. The application deadline is June 9, 2023.
Note that, though the ETE Master is the main entry door into the PhD, direct external entry is possible for candidates holding a degree in Economics equivalent to the ETE Master. Admission in the PhD program goes together with a 3-year grant. The application deadline to submit the pre-application package is April 28, 2023. The deadline to submit full application package after the notification of pre-application outcome is May 19, 2023.
