Swansea University, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Wales Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) are offering a fully-funded PhD studentship to undertake research in the area where the Department of Economics can provide high quality supervision. 

We would like to attract good quality candidates to engage in research in the area of labour economics (preferably related to the area of wellbeing). Swansea University is part of the WISERD Research Centre which has recently received £7 million funding from the ESRC, and where Swansea staff will be working in the general area of labour economics and wellbeing. Supervision will be provided by David Blackaby (Swansea) and Phil Murphy (Swansea) but will also be supported by academics working on the project at Cardiff, Glamorgan, Kent, Roehampton and Sheffield.

The successful candidate will be expected to start their studentship on 1st September 2016.
