PhD Program

If you are interested in working with me or some of my fantastic colleagues in the political science department, please consider applying our PhD program! Our application deadline is January 15, 2024. 

Our department's strengths are in political economy and political behavior, with a focus on quantitative methods. We offer a competitive 5-year tuition and stipend package with considerable opportunities for additional internal grants. 

I personally supervise students working on comparative politics and political economy as well as those with methodological interest in natural experiments, geospatial methods, and machine learning. For more information, see my research page.  If you have any questions, I am happy to answer them by email at adasgupta3 [at]
