  • Prospective PhD students

    Prospective PhD students

    The Choice Lab regularly supervises PhD research scholars who pursue their degree in the field of behavioral and experimental economics. PhD research scholars who choose to focus on this area will become part of the The Choice Lab and have close interaction with the other researchers of the group and the faculty at the department of economics. This interaction is encouraged through research collaboration, a wide variety of seminars and workshops as well as social gatherings in which the research scholars are fully involved.

    The PhD programme at NHH is a fully funded programme for three (or four) years during which scholars combine their studies and research with 25% work as a teaching and/or research assistant.

    more about the NHH's PhD programme.

    We also organize workshops and courses in behavioral and experimental economics especially targeted at PhD students.

    We also host visits for PhD-students wanting to work with The Choice Lab.

  • Experiments


    The Choice Lab regularly invites people to participate in economic experiments that study individual choices in economic situations. The experiments require no prior knowledge and all information collected during an experiment will be anonymous.

    The data collected from our participants are of great value to our research, and we are most grateful to everyone who accepts our invitation to join an experiment. Unfortunately, in order to obtain as representative a sample as possible, there is no place to sign up for upcoming experiments without an invitation.
