PhD Research Opportunties

We welcome applications from well-qualified candidates wishing to pursue research leading to PhD in the areas of experimental and behavioural economics, individual choice, game theory and social preferences. Information about the research interests of CeDEx colleagues can be found in the people section of our website, where you can also link to staff websites to view further information about each person, including their recent publications. You may also wish to browse our Discussion Paper Series and Publications to see the topics CeDEx researchers have been working on.

We organise an annual conference-style workshop for our PhD students which brings together an international group of researchers in behavioural economics, including those from CREED at Amsterdam and CBESS at the University of East Anglia. This is in addition to a CeDEx seminar series and weekly Brown Bag sessions which provide the opportunity for invaluable peer feedback.

CeDEx is a world leading research group with lab facilities both in the School of Economics and Nottingham University Business School. Studying with us can be a pathway to many exciting opportunities in and out of academia.
