PhD's Program “Environmental and Resource Economics”

Laboratory for Environmental and Resource Economics and Department of Social and Economic Planning at Siberian Federal University offer a research opportunity in Economics under the supervision of Professor Evgeniya Zander and Dr Anton Pyzhev.

The research project will explore sustainable development at a regional scale and forest economics in a broad sense. Since these topics are not sufficiently examined in the Russia context, we offer a wide variety of challenging tasks within our research field. We are open to get involved in a new research problem and educational activity.
