Research Assistant Positions not at the NBER

This page provides links to full-time job listings associated with research projects led by NBER-affiliated researchers. These positions, which are not based at the NBER's Cambridge office, may be suitable for bachelor's degree candidates, graduate students, or post-docs. Positions typically have an expected duration of 1 to 3 years, and often give priority to candidates who are planning to continue to the next stage of their academic career upon completion of the position. For a listing of positions at NBER, please visit http://www.nber.org/jobs/employment_opp.html. This page does not include listings for jobs that utilize economic analysis for purposes other than academic research, such as postings for economics consulting firms and financial services firms.
