Minnesota Graduate Students

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

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you want additional information about any of our students on the market. You can reach us via e-mail at and

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 curricula.

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. International students are first required to demonstrate fluency in spoken English. All students are provided classroom critiques and other assistance to develop their teaching expertise. As a result, each student enters the job market with a repertoire of notes and techniques for teaching undergraduate economics. Each curriculum vitae lists the courses that the student has taught. Our Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Ayca Ozdogan, can give additional information about each student’s teaching performance. She can be reached by e-mail at
