RES PhD Meetings

In January each year, the RES organises two-days of Postgraduate meetings in London.  

Over the two days, there are:

  • Presentations and poster sessions by PhD students;
  • Interviews between recruiters and job market candidates;
  • Plenary sessions offering advice on getting published and securing a job; and
  • Opportunities to network.

The next RES PhD Meetings & Job Market will take place on 3-4 January 2017 at Westminster Business School.


Interviews
A key aim of the meetings is to allow European recruiters to interview job market candidates nearer to home. Recruiters use the meetings in addition to or as well as the AEA meetings to meet with candidates. Students should note that attending the meetings does not guarantee them interviews, most institutions arrange these in advance.  As well as the links for recruiters attending the meetings, Job Market Candidates can also apply for advertised positions directly via  https://econjobmarket.org/ ; http://www.aeaweb.org/joe/.

The RES PhD meetings in 2016 were held on 8-9 January at the Westminster Business School Marylebone Campus in central London again providing opportunities for interviews between job market candidates and recruiting institutions, as well as research presentations and plenary sessions on key aspects of academic life including sessions from Prof. Daniel Hamermesh on negotiating the job market and from Prof. Frederic Vermeulen (Editor of The Economic Journal) on how to get published.

Organisations attending the RES PhD Meetings on 8-9 January 2016 were:

    Economics Network (Bristol)
