Budget Policy Research

Natasha Sarin, Associate Professor at Yale Law School, is looking for research assistants for work that she is collaborating on with Danny Yagan, Associate Professor at UC Berkeley, and Martha Gimbel, Research Scholar at Yale Law School. This work is focused on research around the estimates that are part of the budget policy process, particularly around long-term outcomes and return on investment. RAs will be engaged in all stages of the research process, including conceptual development, model programming, data analysis, and writing. This research will give RAs the opportunity to see how academic research that is intended both for publication in academic journals and for policy relevance is conducted.

Requisite Skills and Qualifications

Candidates should have coursework in economics and statistics and an interest in public policy, although candidates with strong programming skills and no prior experience in economics are also encouraged to apply.
