OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Department of Applied Economics (DULBEA) at the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management is offering a multi-year PhD fellowship in Economics (which can be held either full or part-time) at the ULB (Université libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium). This funding will provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to work on a research project led by Professor Ilan Tojerow in health/labor economics and, specifically, study the diverse factors and various contexts that could explain why individuals enter or exit disability programs. This new position is situated at a dynamic research center which supports a series of ongoing research projects focusing on disability economics and will work alongside four current doctoral students, one postdoctoral fellow and more than two dozen affiliated researchers.

The grant could start as soon as January 2021 or later on (negotiable).

Outstanding quantitative skills with experience in statistical programming software (e.g. STATA, R) are essential. They should also show interest in public policy and its evaluation. Fluency in English is required, knowledge in French/Dutch is a plus.

  1. A motivation letter;
  2. A full resume (including grades);
  3. A copy of the Master’s diploma (including grades) or a letter indicating the expected defense date;
