Full-Time Empirical Research Fellow
This is an excellent opportunity for a recent graduate who is considering preparing for a doctoral program in Economics or Finance. As an Empirical Research Fellow, you will collaborate with faculty and PhD students at the Kellogg School of Management to work on empirical or theoretical economics research projects. You will typically work on multiple projects at a time, and your contributions might span all aspects of the research life cycle.
Candidates should have an interest in applying for a quantitative Ph.D. program, preferably in Economics or a related field, and pursuing an academic research career. The ideal candidate will have:
A background in Economics is a plus, but not necessary; in fact, we encourage candidates with strong technical backgrounds who are looking to receive more exposure to Economics or Finance.
Potential research duties vary, but may include: collecting and validating new research datasets, performing statistical analyses on large databases, programming simulations of theoretical models, and proving theoretical results.
Successful candidates will have completed at least bachelor’s degree by the employment start date. If selected, you will be offered a one-year appointment, with the ability to renew for one year based on performance.
