S.S. Huebner Doctoral Colloquium

2017 Huebner Doctoral Colloquium Participants. 

2017 Huebner Doctoral Colloquium Participants. 

The Huebner Doctoral Colloquium supports four outstanding Ph.D. candidates nationally and internationally with scholarship in the areas of risk and insurance. These doctoral candidates have the opportunity to present their research to four leading academics in the field, who provide detailed feedback to improve that research. The colloquium supports community-building by connecting beginning and advanced researchers, and prepares these students to apply for risk- and insurance-related faculty positions.

Martin Grace (Georgia State University), Mike Hoy (Guelph), and Casey Rothschild (Wellesley) were the academic participants for 2017. Stephen Shore (Georgia State University), Executive Director of the Huebner Foundation, moderated.

Details for the 2018 Huebner Colloquium will be posted when available.



CEAr/Huebner summer institute

The CEAR/Huebner Summer Risk Institute exposes Ph.D. students and interested faculty in risk and uncertainty to relevant cutting-edge models, tools, and theory. Our audience is primarily comprised of faculty and Ph.D. students interested in the economics of risk who are located at colleges and universities that do not have access to specialized seminars and courses in these areas. Lectures are conducted by leading scholars in the fields of risk and uncertainty located at Georgia State University and elsewhere. The Huebner Foundation has supported the CEAR/Huebner Summer Institute for four years.
