    We offer a three year doctoral scholarship (gross monthly wage 1,900 euros) starting on August, 1st (or September, 1st) to work on the project general topics: family conditions and economic shocks during childhood and adolescence and their effect on schooling; the role of public investment in favor of the youth; the impact of family and peer behavior on human capital investment; track choices; interactions between various forms of human capital investment during the life cycle; human capital as insurance. Projects will be empirical, using primarily French, Norwegian or British data.

A post-doc and a doctoral student have already been hired on this Norface project at PSE.

    PSE’s PhD committee will separately assess the quality of their training and their capacity to join the PSE PhD program.
