The UNC Tax Center announces the fourth annual UNC Tax Doctoral Seminar
to be held January 3-7, 2012, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Seminar will be led by Professors Doug Shackelford and Ed Maydew from UNC, John Graham from Duke, Michelle Hanlon from MIT and Jennifer Blouin from the University of Pennsylvania. They will invite up to 10 first- or second-year students from PhD programs around the country.
The Seminar will expose students of all backgrounds to current tax research. It is targeted primarily for non-tax students from doctoral programs without a tax PhD seminar. No tax expertise is required. All students will learn the fundamentals of tax research, and some may wind up adding tax to their set of research interests.
Through the generous support of KPMG, the UNC Tax Center will cover all student expenses (e.g., housing and meals), except travel.
Inquiries should be directed to Professor Shackelford at firstname.lastname@example.org
