We are looking for a highly skilled, motivated, and independent individual to work as a full-time research assistant for a period of at least one year beginning in Autumn 2018. We will accept applications on a rolling basis.

The job will entail close collaboration on a number of new and ongoing projects in public policy and applied microeconomics working for Professors Anjali Adukia and Yana Gallen at the University of Chicago. Examples of research areas include: education policy, violence in children’s lives, the gender pay gap, and the effects of paid family leave.

The ideal candidate will have (i) a strong quantitative background, (ii) strong computer skills including programming, (iii) the ability to work independently to solve problems, and (iv) a long-term interest in pursuing research in economics and/or public policy. Background in economics is a plus, but not necessary—we welcome candidates with strong technical backgrounds who are looking for more exposure to economics and/or public policy. We pay an annual salary of up to
$48,000 and provide standard benefits such as health insurance.
