EALE Job Market Tour

As previously announced, our Department has the great honor of hosting the very first stop at the first ever EALE Job Market Tour on May 16th.

During the event, we will be visited by 3 excellent young labor economists who have been selected to jointly tour three top labor departments across Europe during this week. For all of us who are interested in labor economics, this is a great opportunity to listen to the research of coming stars in our field. For PhD students irrespective of field it is an opportunity to meet and listen to successful peers - during the social breaks you will have ample opportunities to talk to them about their experience during the job market. See below for the program.

Since the program involves a free lunch (on top of all the great research) we need you to sign up. Please do so by e-mailing Ulrika.ojdeby@nek.uu.se before noon on May 2nd. Indicate if you have any dietary requirements. We hope to see many of you there!
