Ideal career step for exceptionally talented individuals to join Australia's leading domestic policy think-tank. Based in Melbourne, Grattan's programs include Energy, Cities, Health, School Education, Productivity Growth and Higher Education.

Grattan Institute has two positions available for early-career economists, working with some of Australia's leading public policy thinkers to bring applied economic and econometric analysis to bear on important policy challenges. We are looking for outstanding graduate qualifications (Master's or Ph.D.) and strong research capabilities. Candidates will have excellent conceptual and numerical skills, including demonstrated strengths in applied econometrics; be adept at synthesising information; write in persuasive, plain language; and have a strong interest in public policy.

You will join a team of Associates - generalists and economists - helping to shape the debate on important challenges and opportunities facing Australia. Associates at Grattan work in small teams in a high-performance environment, and can expect to strengthen their policy analysis and communication skills and develop their technical capabilities. Grattan reports cite associates by name as authors.
