About the Project
This PhD will have a focus on the relatively under-researched area of the economics of social care and will use large administrative and survey datasets to examine changes in the way that people’s care needs are supported. It will consider issues of efficiency, equity and sustainability. It will consider national policy and local initiatives and will focus on the main issues in organisation and financing of social care.
Suitable candidates will need a strong background in microeconometrics applied to cross-sectional and longitudinal survey or administrative data.
Applicants will need an excellent (minimum class upper second) undergraduate degree in Economics or similarly quantitative discipline and a high-grade Masters qualification in Economics with a substantial econometrics component.
