Recruitment of PhD Candidate in Japanese Economy and Business

The European Institute of Japanese Studies (EIJS) at Stockholm School of Economics is now recruiting a Ph.D. candidate for the Doctoral Program in Asian Economy and Business. This is a program in close cooperation with the business community.

The Ph.D. candidate will be accepted into the regular SSE Ph.D. Program in Business Administration, Economics or Finance. In addition to fulfilling the regular SSE entrance criteria (please see under each specialization on home page http://www.hhs.se/Education/PhD/Pages/AEB.aspx), the candidate should also be fluent in Japanese.

She/he 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 candidates are 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.

We want to get in contact with potential candidates as soon as possible. Expected starting time is end of August 2021.

For more information please contact the Director of EIJS, Patrik Ström
