Research assistant positions
I am looking to hire a full time research assistant to begin in the summer or fall of 2018 and to work for at least one year. This position will entail close collaboration and assistance with all stages of various empirical research projects analyzing the causes and consequences of technological change.
Candidates should have a long-term interest in pursuing research related to economics, health policy, and/or innovation policy. However, prior background in these areas is not strictly necessary; I welcome candidates interested in gaining exposure to these areas of research. This position is ideal for candidates looking to develop their empirical research skills in preparation for applying to PhD programs in economics or related fields.
Preference will be given to detail-oriented applicants with previous programming experience, particularly in working with large datasets in software such as Stata and SAS. Prior experience with a general-purpose programming language such as Python is desirable but not required.
Please submit applications for these positions here and here.
