Please find below the curriculum vitae of each of the Minnesota Economics Ph.D. students on the job market this year.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like any additional information about any of our students on the market. We can be reached easily via e-mail at holmes@umn.edu and erm@umn.edu

We are proud of the research contributions that our past graduates have made in Economics and expect that this year’s group will continue that tradition. We push them hard here, and they respond well as you can see from the enclosed vita. 

We would also like to emphasize that our students already have extensive teaching experience. Minnesota students in the later years of their program are typically supported by teaching assistantships that give them full responsibility for selected undergraduate courses. Foreign students are first required to demonstrate fluency in spoken English. All students are given classroom critiques as well as other assistance in developing teaching expertise. As a result, each student enters the job market with a full repertoire of notes and techniques for undergraduate economics teaching. Each  c.v.  lists  the courses that  the student has taught.  Our Director of  Undergraduate Studies,  Dr. Simran Sahi, can give you additional information about each student’s teaching performance. She can be reached at (612) 625-6353 or by e-mail at ssahi@umn.edu
