PhD Track Doctoral Research in Empirical Quantitative Marketing

Researchers in the field of empirical quantitative marketing combine data and quantitative models of consumer or managerial decision processes in order to generate new scientific knowledge. The empirical quantitative marketing group in the Department of Marketing Management at Rotterdam School of Management (Erasmus University) is seeking a highly motivated PhD student who desires to pursue an academic research career in this field.

Applicants must have strong quantitative training, with preference given to candidates who have earned an MSc, MPhil or Research Master in econometrics, statistics, or microeconomics, and who have proficiency with R, SQL, python, or other data-oriented programming languages.

The PhD student will gain the training and experience necessary to conduct independent research through course work and seminars in economics and quantitative marketing; workshops and research seminars; and through applied and theoretical research conducted in concert with the marketing faculty. The PhD thesis will be defined by the student with input from the supervisory group, and thus requires creativity, self-direction, and a passion for scientific inquiry.
