Research Assistant Position in applied microeconomics and econometrics

We invite applications for a research position in applied microeconomics (public finance, labor, political economy, etc). The ideal candidate will have expert skills with econometrics using Stata (panel regressions, instrumental variables, and graphs). Some experience working on publishable economics research is required, with a high value of experience writing text and producing tables and figures. Experience with Python, R, or other programming languages is also a plus.

Job description

Tasks may include:

  • Data checks, cleaning, and merging
  • Design and description of an empirical strategy, with articulation of estimating equations and identification assumptions
  • Implementation of the empirical strategy in Stata
  • Reporting of results in regression tables and figures
  • Writing up of results for inclusion in publications
  • Literature reviews and other research/writing tasks

You will get office space at the Law, Economics, and Data Science Group and would be invited to participate regularly in our meetings and seminars. Starting date and work hours are flexible and negotiable. The positions will start off as part time (20% - 40%), but stellar candidates could be offered a full-time scientific support position.

Your profile

The ideal candidate is planning to pursue, or currently pursuing, doctoral work in economics. For PhD students, it will provide access to data and mentoring which could potentially turn into professional collaborations. For bachelor and master students, the position will contribute to grad school preparation.
