The Agriculture and Applied Economics Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is seeking applicants for the Muller Graduate Fellowship. Preference will be given to top applicants studying applied industrial organization (IO), which can be combined with other interests including finance, trade, econometrics, policy, environment, development, or other related fields. Research interests may include: performance of the U.S. and global food systems, competition law and policy analysis, international competition analysis, regulated monopolies, and the interactive role between competition policy and investment, foreign direct investment, trade and technical innovation.
Applicants to the AAE graduate program for Fall 2008 should specify their interest in being considered for the fellowship: there is no special application form.
If you know of a top undergraduate or MS candidate at your institution that might be interested, please forward this email to him/her. Information about the department's industrial organization research activities, IO course offerings, and some example curriculum plans, is available at the web page for the Food System Research Group (www.aae.wisc.edu/fsrg). Please contact Kyle W. Stiegert with further questions.
