Sunčica Vujić joined the Department of Economics at the University of Bath as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Economics in summer 2011.
Sunčica received a BSc degree from the Faculty of Economics, University of Belgrade, an MSc degree from the Economics Department at the Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, an MPhil degree from the Tinbergen Institute in Amsterdam, and a PhD degree from the Economics and Econometrics Departments at the VU University in Amsterdam.
Before joining the Department of Economics at the University of Bath, Sunčica held positions at:
- Department of Management at the London School of Economics (LSE)
- Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) at the London School of Economics (LSE)
- Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis (CPB)
- ORTEC Finance Consultancy in Amsterdam & Rotterdam
She also held lectureship positions at the VU University in Amsterdam and the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, and the University of Freiburg in Germany, where she taught applied econometrics, economics of education, and statistics courses.
Sunčica’s research interests are in the field of applied labour economics, with focus on crime, education, health, gender, poverty and inequality. Recent research interests also include economic and pro-social behaviour within organisations (social businesses) and returns to entrepreneurship. Additionally, she focuses on transition and emerging market economies, particularly Western Balkans.
Sunčica’s research empirically tests theories on human and social capital formation and evaluates different labour market policies. Methodologically, she uses a rich set of econometric tools applied to multi-source (survey and recorded) and multi-dimensional (cross-sectional, panel, time series) data.

- Applied labour economics
