Full Text of JOE Listing:
The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) seeks several candidates to join its team of resident economists as research fellows. Candidates must have recently completed a PhD in economics and must have a demonstrated interest in education, health policy, immigration, public finance, taxation, trade, or other domestic policy topics.

Research fellows are expected to produce academic research suitable for publication in top-level journals; present at academic conferences; and produce research suitable for AEI's many in-house publications and public conferences. Fellows should have an aptitude for communicating their research and its policy implications, in writing and in speech, to journalists, policymakers and other non-academics active in formulating public policy.

This is a full-time, three-year appointment with competitive salary and benefits. Fellows will pursue their own research agenda, but will also work closely with AEI's resident scholars to develop their skills as public academics. At the end of three years, fellows may be considered for full-time placement at AEI as resident scholars.

AEI is a private, not-for-profit public policy research organization committed to expanding liberty, increasing individual opportunity, and strengthening the free enterprise system. Founded in 1938 and located in Washington, D.C., AEI is one of America's largest and most respected non-partisan "think tanks."
