As in past years, the 2020 FIRS Conference will hold a special session for PhD students planning to go on the job market during the 2020/2021 academic year. Each paper will be discussed by a seasoned researcher in a session open to all FIRS participants. Student nominees must submit a solo-authored draft of their job-market paper, along with an advisor’s letter of support. All fields in finance will be considered.
