Post-Baccalaureate Research Fellowship
|Title||Post-Baccalaureate Research Fellowship|
|School||Harvard Graduate School of Education|
|Department/Area||Center for Education Policy Research at Harvard University|
Overview of Program:
Target Audience and Fellowship Requirements:
Fellows will be selected based on excellence in their prior studies, knowledge of quantitative research techniques in the social sciences, and statistical programming and data cleaning experience (Stata, R, Python).
The Fellowship term is for one year, renewable for an additional year for strong performers. Start date is flexible, with a strong preference for candidates who can begin on or before June 15, 2020.
We expect that most Fellows will go on to doctoral programs in Economics, Education Policy, or another social science after completing the fellowship.
Training and Support:
• Induction week. Each cohort of Fellows will spend their first week at CEPR learning about CEPR’s research work, CEPR standards of programming and analysis, CEPR culture, and giving and receiving feedback.
Fellows will have the opportunity to work with faculty from Harvard and other top universities – such as Tom Kane (Harvard Graduate School of Education), Chris Avery (Harvard Kennedy School), and Doug Staiger (Dartmouth College) – in a collaborative team environment. The Faculty Director will meet individually with Fellows bi-annually to discuss their work and development. Fellows’ work and timelines will be guided on a day-to-day basis by CEPR research managers.
A minimum of a bachelor’s degree is required. Knowledge of Stata, R, and/or Python, and previous research experience are strongly preferred. This position is intended to act as a pathway to doctoral programs in Economics, Education Policy, or another social science.
1. Upload your resume, cover letter, unofficial transcript(s), a writing sample (ideally a quantitative social science paper), and a sample of statistical code that you have written (please submit this under the “Other” document category).
Applications are due by November 15th, 2019.
Interviews will take place through mid-December.
