We offer PhD supervision in all main areas of economics. Members of faculty are pleased to meet prospective PhD candidates and discuss the candidates' research ideas. Supervision is based on our commitment to high-quality research. Click here for our staffs' supervision interests.
In recent years faculty have published in numerous leading international journals, both general and specialised, such as the American Economic Review, Quarterly Journal of Economics, The Economic Journal, Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Economic Theory, Games and Economic Behavior, the International Journal of Industrial Organization, the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, the Journal of Mathematical Economics, Experimental Economics, and Social Choice and Welfare.
We have strong research groups in Behavioural Economics, Industrial Economics, Economics of Conflict, Economic Theory and in Applied Econometrics and Finance. See our research page for more information. We also play a central role in two UEA social science research centres, the Centre for Competition Policy (CCP) and the Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science (CBESS). These centres are an important part of a very active research environment, and we actively encourage research students to participate in their research activities. The School also has research links with researchers in other Schools, such as International Development, Environmental Sciences, Norwich Medical School, the UEA Law School and Norwich Business School.
We hold several regular seminars, including the Economics Seminar Series and the Internal Economics Workshop. In addition, there are internal and external CBESS seminars and CCP seminars. Research students are encouraged to attend all these workshops, and to present their own research findings.
