Yale Summer School in Behavioral Finance
June 24 – June 28, 2019
Yale University, New Haven, CT
Organizer: Nicholas Barberis

We invite applications for the 2019 Yale Summer School in Behavioral Finance. This one-week program, now in its sixth iteration, is an intensive PhD course in behavioral finance taught by leading researchers in the field. The program will be of interest to students at schools that do not currently offer a PhD course in behavioral finance; but also to students who have already taken a course in this material but who would like to see it again from a different perspective, and to interact with other students with similar interests.

To apply, you must be enrolled in a PhD program in economics or finance. To be selected, it is not necessary that behavioral finance be your main research focus. We are simply looking for students who are doing very well in their PhD programs, regardless of their particular research interests, and who would like to learn more about this area of finance.

Accommodation costs and reasonable transportation costs to and from New Haven will be covered by Yale University.

To apply, please e-mail the following to Electra Ferriello at (i) a cover letter detailing your background and research focus and explaining why you are interested in the program; (ii) a curriculum vitae; and (iii) the names and contact information of two faculty members who could act as references, if necessary.

The application deadline is Thursday, February 28th. We welcome applications at any time on or before that date. We will notify candidates about their participation by the third week of March.
