  • EPOG-DN – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – DOCTORAL NETWORK – PhD scholarships – Call for applications

    EPOG-DN is a Marie Skło­dows­ka-Curie Doc­to­ral Net­work (2024–2028) that offers 11 PhD posi­tions sche­du­led to com­mence in September/October 2024. PhD posi­tions are 36-month positions.

    First dead­line: March 1, 2024, 13:00 (Paris time).

    The MSCA-fun­ded EPOG-DN (Econo­mic Poli­cies for the Global bifur­ca­tion  Docto­ral Network) pro­ject aims to esta­blish a com­mu­ni­ty of eco­no­mists capable of col­la­bo­ra­ting with various dis­ci­plines, sec­tors and sta­ke­hol­ders to address eco­lo­gi­cal chal­lenges. It gathers full part­ners (bene­fi­cia­ries) and 12 asso­cia­ted part­ners from dif­ferent fields and sectors.

    This pro­ject explores the path­ways toward achie­ving strong sus­tai­na­bi­li­ty, where social, eco­no­mic and envi­ron­men­tal objec­tives are not sub­sti­tu­table with each other. The pro­ject intro­duces the concept of glo­bal bifur­ca­tion, which encom­passes a range of mul­ti­di­men­sio­nal and sys­te­mic pro­cesses. The pro­ject pro­poses a dis­tinc­tive stra­te­gy for tack­ling the com­plexi­ty of glo­bal bifur­ca­tion, which involves a socio-tech­ni­cal, socio-eco­no­mic and socio-eco­lo­gi­cal pers­pec­tive, all wor­king in concert to deve­lop a sys­te­mic approach.

    The EPOG-DN pro­ject offers 11 ful­ly fun­ded scho­lar­ships for doc­to­ral can­di­dates (DCs), as lis­ted below:
