PhD in Decision, Risk and Financial Sciences
The University of Melbourne is offering an interdisciplinary PhD program in decision sciences (Decision, Risk and Financial Sciences). The program is a collaboration between the Department of Finance, the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences, the Melbourne School of Engineering and the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. It is a 2+3 year program (2 years Master’s, 3 years PhD). The program fosters interdisciplinary research by providing training in the conceptual principles and research techniques in fields across the social, biological and mathematical sciences that analyse human decision-making and problem solving in the context of risk and complexity at the level of individuals and markets. Students will draw on interdisciplinary experimental methods and conceptual principles obtained in the initial 2-year coursework phase to deliver cutting-edge solutions to key research questions within the field of decision-making, risk and financial sciences.
More information about the program and the application process is available at here.
