Job Title

Research Associate (2 positions available)

Job Description

The University of Notre Dame’s Department of Economics is seeking to hire two full-time Research Associates to join the Structural Transformation and Economic Growth (STEG) Research Team. This research program will support new research into the process of economic development for poor countries. The Research Associates will work closely with economics faculty researchers to support research projects funded through STEG. This work will involve data analysis and dissemination of results, as well as assistance with STEG program management, including logistics and communications in organizing workshops, and handling external grant applications.

These are good positions for those wanting to start a PhD in Economics in two years.
Please apply with CV, short writing sample, and the names of two faculty who can provide references.

These positions are full-time, one-year limited-term positions. There is an option to renew this position for a second year, contingent upon continuation of these funds. The positions are contingent upon and funded by an externally sponsored source with an anticipated start date of June 1, 2023 and end date of May 31, 2024 or 12 months after start date.

Minimum Qualifications

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Education: completed a 4-year undergraduate degree (bachelors or foreign equivalent) in economics, statistics, computer science, applied mathematics, or related field, and want to pursue a PhD in Economics
  • Experience: a strong quantitative background reflected on transcripts and strong writing skills evidenced by a writing sample. Experience programming in Stata is a must; experience in R is useful. Working with GIS data is a plus.
  • Approach to work: independent problem-solving skills and an entrepreneurial spirit. The candidate should have the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, be highly organized and self-motivated, and able to learn quickly on-the-job.

Preferred Qualifications

Experience working for economic researchers as a research assistant.
