Research Assistant Positions not at the NBER

This page provides links to full-time job listings for bachelor's degree candidates, graduate students, or post-docs, where a substantial share of the work involves assisting economics researchers prepare papers for publication in academic journals, through, for example, collection and analysis of datasets or field research. Positions typically have an expected duration of 1 to 3 years, and typically give priority to candidates looking to continue to the next stage of their academic career upon completion of the position. This page does not include listings for jobs that utilize economic analysis for purposes other than academic research, such as economics consulting firms and financial services firms; university career offices typically manage these postings.
