I am a cs graduate as the title suggests. I have been working as a data engineering/ science consultant for the past couple of months. And I will hopefully get a public administrative job (civil service) soon.
I am extremely interested in the field of economics and that's why I have got admitted into a masters program in economics. I am very much interested into doing research on the interface of economics and computer science and want to do a PhD in this field.
In short what I want to know is, To what extent might I be at a disadvantage due to my CS background when I am trying to get a PhD position and then hopefully an academic position at a decent university in the field of economics or computational economics? How far will I be behind of my peers with an economics background in the overall job market if everything else on my CV is average?
