Submissions are invited for the Stern Microstructure Meeting scheduled for Friday, May 9, 2014 at NYU Stern School in New York City, with optional concurrent submission to the Journal of Financial Markets. The meeting will be organized by Joel Hasbrouck. The program committee is Tarun Chordia, Amit Goyal, and Gideon Saar. Supporting funding is provided by NASDAQ OMX through a grant to the Salomon Center at Stern.

TOPICS: The focus of the program meeting is the economics of securities markets. This includes (but is not limited to) theoretical, empirical, and experimental analyses of: the role of information in the price-discovery process; the definition, measurement, and determinants of liquidity; the costs and benefits of alternate trading mechanisms and market structures; the measurement and control of transactions costs; the role of regulation and the evolution of market design; domestic and international comparisons of trading costs; cross-border listing and trading securities; trading technology and information systems; practical implications of market design for risk management; and financial engineering.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: If you are interested in presenting a paper at the meeting, please upload a PDF at the submission website: http://pages.stern.nyu.edu/~jhasbrou/openconf/openconf.php. The deadline for submissions is midnight, Sunday, March 16, 2014. The Salomon Center will cover the expenses of those chosen to present and discuss papers at the meeting (one author's expenses in the case of multiple-authored papers).

During the submission process for the Stern Microstructure Meeting, authors will have option of simultaneously submitting their paper to the Journal of Financial Markets ("dual submission").

DUAL SUBMISSIONS: To submit a paper for dual consideration, authors must check the dual submission box on the submission web form and also check the box certifying that the paper is not under review at another journal or the JFM. In addition, a paper can't be considered for the JFM if it has previously been rejected by the JFM (although it remains eligible for the conference).

At the discretion of the JFM, referee reports will be solicited for a small number of the dual submissions. If such a report is sought, the authors will receive a copy of the report. Papers rejected at any stage of the dual review process (including those that are refereed) are not considered to have been "rejected" at the JFM. They remain eligible for subsequent submission to the JFM without prejudice. While under consideration by the conference and the JFM, a paper may not be submitted to another journal (or the JFM) until the author has been notified of the outcome of the dual-submission process. JFM submission fees (for the initial and subsequent rounds, if necessary) are waived.

ATTENDANCE: Attendance at the conference is open. All interested persons (certainly including faculty, students, practitioners, and regulators) are welcome to attend.

Lancaster University, Lancaster University Management School
MRes Finance and MRes Accounting & Financial Management Programme

The Department of Accounting and Finance at Lancaster is committed to recruiting the finest calibre Master of Research (MRes) students of all backgrounds from all over the world. We strive to attain the highest level of academic excellence in teaching and research in pursuit of our goal of producing graduates and researchers who reflect the institution's high-quality standards with distinction and honour. As an international research and academic training institute, we are proud to host excellent research students from a wide range of nationalities.

PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION: The MRes is a one-year full-time Masters degree aimed at students who wish to proceed subsequently to doctoral studies. The programme is suitable both for students who are hoping to continue their doctoral study at Lancaster and those who decide to complete their PhD at another university.

The MRes has two purposes:
1. to provide intending PhD students with a better grounding in a specialist subject area
2. to provide intending PhD students with the qualitative and quantitative research skills they will need in order to undertake their research

The taught course element of the MRes programme is normally based on the corresponding MSc programme, and also includes assessed study of advanced research methods. MRes candidates are also expected to produce a dissertation that will normally take the form of a PhD proposal or a draft of a first research paper that enables a smooth transition from the MRes to PhD study. Students who achieve a prescribed required standard, both for the MRes overall and the dissertation element, are considered as candidates for our competitive PhD programme in the following year.

Because of the unique structure of the MRes programmes in Finance and in Accounting & Financial Management, we are able to offer transfer opportunities for our own MSc students to join the MRes programme after Term 1, provided that they have attained sufficiently excellent results. Such transfers are always subject to the approval of the Director(s) of Study in the Department.

QUALIFICATIONS: Entry requirements for the MRes degrees are as for the MSc degrees, although (where required for overseas applicants) a higher GMAT score of 650+ would be sought. We will also take into account an applicant's potential for excellence in research and progression to successful doctoral level study. Therefore, offers for admission are subject to review by the Directors of PhD Study in the Department.

SCHOLARSHIPS: Each year the Department of Accounting and Finance funds a competitive fee scholarship competition which is open to MRes applicants. This includes a fee bursary and a living allowance of up to British Pound 14,000 for outstanding applicants. Scholarships are also available through the North West Doctoral Training Centre (http://www.nwdtc.ac.uk) which is the largest centre in England for social science postgraduate training. Here a fee bursary plus a living allowance of up to British Pound 14,000 is available.

APPLICATIONS/FURTHER INFORMATION: Our website: http://www.lums.lancs.ac.uk/departments/accounting provides more details of our programmes, our faculty and their research expertise, the application procedure as well as funding opportunities. You can also contact our PhD programme secretary Carole Holroyd c.holroyd@lancaster.ac.uk in the Department of Accounting and Finance.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Applications are now open. You should apply as soon as possible. Please apply before 30 June 2014 for October 2014 entry.


Lancaster University, Lancaster University Management School
PhD Programme in Accounting and Finance

The Department of Accounting and Finance at Lancaster is committed to recruiting the finest calibre PhD students of all backgrounds from all over the world. We strive to attain the highest level of academic excellence in teaching and research in pursuit of our goal of producing graduates and researchers who reflect the institution's high-quality standards with distinction and honour. As an international research and academic training institute, we are proud to host excellent research students from a wide range of nationalities.

PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION: Our department offers intensive PhD programmes in both Accounting and Finance. These are full-time doctoral programmes of three years in total, with a fourth year reserved for final writing up of the doctoral thesis. We also offer an 'Integrated PhD' programme, which commences with study towards the Master of Research (MRes) award. Please note that we do not currently offer part-time PhD study.

During the first year, PhD students are required to complete a portfolio of postgraduate taught courses and seminars covering accounting and finance theory, econometric and statistical methods and research methodology. This requirement often includes a selection from the courses offered for MSc students in accounting and finance, along with specific PhD and visitors' seminars within the department.

Doctoral researchers with excellent results then continue with the doctoral thesis, leading up to the final defence of the thesis in the 'viva' examination.

Our department typically admits up to 10 new PhD candidates each year. All our students are required to participate in the research activities of the department and to attend full-time throughout the period of study. There are many opportunities for networking with our international partners and attending workshops and conferences. We provide an excellent research environment for our doctoral researchers, including dedicated office space, access to many specialized datasets and databases as well as scientific computing facilities and IT support.

QUALIFICATIONS: Our admissions criteria for the Department are as follows:
- Applicants are normally expected to hold a relevant Masters degree in finance, accounting or a cognate subject area. We will usually require a performance at distinction level at Masters degree, typically averaging 70% overall, which may also be required in a suitable dissertation element.
- In some cases, students possessing a 'research-relevant' first class or upper-second class Bachelors degree may be registered directly for the PhD degree, but this is rare.
- Alternatively, for students not already holding/studying towards a suitable Masters degree, the ESRC-recognised MRes programme provides a foundation for PhD study. The Department requires distinction-level performance, both overall and for the dissertation element.
- Applicants are advised that a GMAT score may be required.
- Our English language requirements (where required) are for IELTS at 7.0 or 600 TOEFL (250 on the computer-based test).
- We are looking for evidence of creativity and potential to develop a successful career as an academic researcher. Therefore, we will usually aim to conduct an interview (which may be conducted via telephone or video-link) with suitable applicants.

Our research students are encouraged and supported to gain classroom experience, in preparation for possible academic careers. Opportunities also arise regularly to work as part-time research assistants on faculty members' research projects.

SCHOLARSHIPS: There are a number of scholarships open to our PhD applicants, including ESRC scholarships through the North West Doctoral Training Centre (http://www.nwdtc.ac.uk) which is the largest centre in England for social science postgraduate training, Management School and Departmental scholarships. These scholarships typically cover full fees and a maintenance allowance of at least British Pound 14,000 per year, with enhanced bursaries up to British Pound 20,000 available for outstanding applicants.

All students who receive funding from the Management School or the Department will be required to undertake such work, according to the amount of funding they receive. However, we also encourage all other students to take on occasional teaching and/or research assistantship duties on a paid basis, to expand their own experiences in readiness for graduation.

After graduation, most of our students go on to assume faculty positions at universities all over the world. A smaller number find employment in the public or private sector. All in all, our PhD programme is perfectly tailored for aspiring academics.

APPLICATIONS/FURTHER INFORMATION: Our website: http://www.lums.lancs.ac.uk/departments/accounting provides more details of our programmes, our faculty and their research expertise, the application procedure as well as funding opportunities. You can also contact our PhD programme secretary Carole Holroyd c.holroyd@lancaster.ac.uk in the Department of Accounting and Finance.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Applications are now open. You should apply as soon as possible. Please apply before 30 June 2014 for October 2014 entry.
