Marina Giltman graduated from the University of Tyumen in 2000. Her specialization was Management of Regional Economy. After graduation she worked as a specialist in the Committee of International Trade and Foreign Affairs in Tyumen regional government. Marina got her PhD in Economic Theory from Kazan National Research Technical University in 2004. From September 2004 till present she is an associate professor in the Department of Economic Theory and Applied Economics at the University of Tyumen.
Marina’s current research interests are related to the spatial dimensions of the labour markets inequality including regional and local labour markets and their outputs. These topics are relevant to the research areas of two most famous European research institutions of Labour Economics: IZA Institute of Labor Economics (for example, Lindley J., Machin S. (2013) Spatial Changes in Labour Market Inequality) and The Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) (i.e. Local Labour Markets and Changing Labour Markets). Marina is trying to research the differences between the regional and local labour markets in Russia following two basic theories: the Model of Local Labour Markets Equilibrium and the Russian Labour Market Model. So far she has finished the project “The Functioning of the Russian Labor Market Model in Russian Regions” supported by the Russian Foundation for Humanities. The study showed that it is possible to allocate at least two groups of regions with specific manifestations of the Russian Labour Market Model, namely, areas with high employment elasticity and regions in the High (Far) North of Russia characterized by compensative differentials and specific labour protection legislation together with the specific geographical characteristics.
