The Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University has three Senior Research Specialist positions available. We are looking for skilled and motivated individuals to work as full-time research assistants for a period of at least one year.
The positions will be based at Princeton University and will entail close collaboration with Professors Micaela Sviatschi, Anne Karing, and Thomas Fujiwara. The research projects involve questions related to development economics, political economy, and behavioral economics (e.g.,crime, public health,elections and gender disparities). The position will include a variety of tasks that provide preparation for graduate school, such as: managing data sets, statistical analysis, summarizing research findings, and editing research papers. Additional duties may be assigned. The opportunity to actively participate in fieldwork in a developing country context is also a possibility (though not required) for the position.
In addition to working closely with faculty, senior research specialists participate in the vibrant academic life of Princeton University, including auditing classes, attending seminars, and engaging with graduate students and other research assistants. We pay a competitive salary and provide standard benefits such as health insurance.
This position is ideal for exceptional graduating seniors or final year masters students with a strong interest in pursuing a Ph.D. in Economics after acquiring one or two years of research experience.
This is a one-year position with the possibility of renewal for a second year. End date is dependent on start date, which may vary.
