Our preferred start date is June 1, 2019 although we are willing to accommodate an earlier or later start. The application deadline for the fall round of applications is October 29, 2018.
The job will entail close collaboration on a number of new and ongoing projects in applied microeconomics. We plan to hire several candidates to work with the professors listed in the header. We plan to match candidates to professors based on research interests. Previous holders of this position at Chicago Booth have gone on to Ph.D. programs at Harvard, MIT, Princeton, and the University of Chicago.

The ideal candidate will have (i) a strong quantitative background, (ii) strong computer skills including programming, (iii) the ability to work independently to solve problems, and (iv) a long-term interest in pursuing research in economics. Background in economics is a plus, but not necessary—we welcome candidates with strong technical backgrounds who are looking for more exposure to economics. We pay an annual salary of $48,000 and provide standard benefits such as health insurance.
