Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Levy Economics Institute of Bard College invites applications for a Research Scholar in the Gender Equality and the Economy (GEE) program. The program’s goal is to engage in analytical and empirical work that improves our understanding of the persistence and reconstitution of economic inequalities, especially in their gendered forms. Of equal importance, our research is focused on arriving at policy recommendations that are transformative, from a social and an economic point of view; namely, interventions with the potential to redress the underlying reasons that trap women and men, albeit in different ways, in inequitable positions, in both developing and developed countries.

The successful candidate will have solid quantitative and econometric skills and a research agenda/experience compatible with the Gender Equality and the Economy program, as well as a strong interest in policy issues and a proven ability to work with microdata. A completed Ph.D. in economics is required.

The position requires collaboration with a team of GEE researchers and research associates in two flagship research areas: (1) contributing to the further development of the Levy Institute Measure of Time and Income Poverty and applying this measure to new countries, and (2) tracing through Social Accounting Matrix analysis and microsimulation the macro-micro impacts of employment guarantee programs on investing in health and education in a variety of national contexts. Expertise and research interest in one or more of the following areas is considered an asset: labor markets, public finance, social security, and social protection systems.

Application Instructions:

To apply, please send a letter of interest, current CV, references, and sample papers by e-mail only to The Levy Economics Institute of Bard College is an equal opportunity employer, and we welcome applications from those who contribute to our diversity. AA/EOE.
