Recruitment of PhD Candidate in Japanese Economy and Business
The Ph.D. candidate has to apply and be accepted into one of the SSE Ph.D. Programs in Business Administration, Economics or Finance. In addition to fulfilling the regular SSE admission criteria (please see under each specialization on home page https://www.hhs.se/en/Education/PhD/), the candidate should also be fluent in Japanese.
The candidate will be part of an "Asian group" clustered together in close vicinity to EIJS and Stockholm China Economic Research Institute (SCERI) and in this way constitute part of the "Asian academic hub" at the School. Besides the regular SSE PhD curriculum, there will be a number of Asia-related seminars and other activities in which the candidate is expected to take part. The Program is for four years and given in English.
What is special about this program is that we will be working very closely with the business community. We are at this moment looking for a candidate working on Japan.
Application should be sent through the SSE online application portal https://hhs.fullfabric.com/. Please, submit an application to the PhD program of your choice and mention your interest for this position in the statement of purpose. Please also send a PDF copy of your application to Marie.firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can get in contact with you as soon as possible.
Application deadline is February 1, 2019 and expected starting time is the end of August 2019.
