Noahpinion: How I survived the Econ Job Market.
PhD Job Market Candidates 2019 - 2020 Details of Cambridge Economics PhD students on the job market this year Maarten De Ridder.
PhD Job Market Candidate My primary research interests lie in the field of Microeconomic Theory, with a specific focus on mechanism design problems with liars and lie-detection. My job market paper studies how lie-detecting technology can be applied to deter lying and elicit information from potential liars.
The job market paper is a piece of original research, usually included as one of three chapters in the dissertation, that best demonstrates a job market candidate's skills, training, and aptitude as an economist. A job market paper also should contribute to the extant literature by providing novel answers and insights regarding a well-defined research question.
Note: Positions from 2005 to 2010 reflect only PhD students who chose to enter the formal job market and accepted a job through that process. Students who already had jobs arranged, or did not do a formal search are not included in those years, hence the lists are incomplete.
An economics PhD is one of the most attractive graduate programs: if you get through, you have a high chance of landing a good research job in academia or policy - promising areas for social impact - and you have back-up options in the corporate sector since the skills you learn are in-demand (unlike many PhD programs). You should especially consider an economics PhD if you want to go into.
