New Research Associates, Faculty Research Fellows Named, Fall 2020
The NBER Board of Directors appointed 42 research associates at its September 2020 meeting. All but one of these appointees were previously faculty research fellows; most received tenure recently at their home institutions. One appointee is a former research associate who has returned from government service.
Research associates must be tenured faculty members at North American colleges or universities; their appointments are recommended to the board by directors of the NBER’s 20 research programs, typically after consultation with a steering committee of leading scholars. The new research associates are affiliated with 31 different colleges and universities; they received graduate training at 22 different institutions.
In addition, the NBER president appointed two new faculty research fellows, also on the advice of program directors and steering committees.
As of October 1, 2020, there were 1,295 research associates and 301 faculty research fellows.
