Junior Fellows

The Junior Fellows Initiative is intended for graduate students who want to continue their studies with a Ph.D. in Economics or Finance and pursue an academic career.

It offers the possibility to improve quantitative and analytical skills and to get first-hand experience in the practice of economic research. Junior fellows attend seminars and extra classes, discuss with CSEF and visiting researchers in weekly meetings, and participate in the academic activities at CSEF.

The scientific coordinators of the initiative are Dr. Elia Sartori and Prof. Marco Pagnozzi.

The call for applications for the A.Y. 2023-2024 is open, download it

For a list of the weekly activities see Junior Fellows Weekly Activities.
