The Ph.D. student will be supervised by Pr. Renaud BEAUPAIN (IÉSEG School of Management) and Pr. Gunther WUYTS (KU Leuven).
We are looking for candidates whose research interest are related to the microstructure of financial markets. Specifically, in Europe, while the Collateral Framework of the Eurosystem defines the characteristics of the securities that can be used as collateral in the credit operations of the European Central Bank, the series of unconventional measures taken by the central bank since 2008 have altered the dynamics of those markets. The Ph.D. candidate will explore the functioning of the markets for collateral in the euro area in the context of these developments. Applicants should have prior knowledge of programming languages (or be ready to learn them). The project will make use of quantitative methods and exploit the information contained in large sets of financial data (so-called high-frequency datasets).
The selected applicant is expected to begin their assignment in September 2020. Gross salary will be competitive with other European research and academic institutions. The Ph.D. student will be based in Lille (on the site of IÉSEG School of Management) but given the partnership with IÉSEG and KU Leuven, they will have to spend minimum 1 year in KU Leuven. The first year of the Ph.D. program will take place on the campus of KU Leuven. The Ph.D. student will get all the means and support to engage in innovative business relevant research projects with high potential to get published in international peer-reviewed journals.
We will begin considering candidates immediately and will continue until the position is filled. We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.Apprenez-en davantage
