NCAER is India's oldest and largest independent, economic research institute. Established in 1956 and governed by an independent Governing Body, NCAER's goal is high-quality applied economic research that is relevant and has impact. NCAER undertakes commissioned research for governments, industry and, increasingly, its own independent, grant-funded research. NCAER is among a few think-tanks globally that has strong data collection capacities focusing on surveys at the national and local level. NCAER recently started a long-term partnership with the global leader in survey research, the University of Michigan's Survey Research Center.

We seek energized, curious, self-starting professionals excited by the intellectual, political, and implementation challenges of effective public policy-making.
NCAER research staff have unparalleled opportunities to work on critical economic and social policy problems in Indian and South Asia using public and NCAER's unique data sets; to inform and influence policymaking at the highest levels of government; publish in professional referred journals; and have top-level access to professional conferences and the media.

Senior Fellows provide intellectual leadership and mentoring, manage commissioned research projects and independent research programs and generally have at least six to eight years of post-PhD work experience, a strong record in research, publications, teaching, or project management.
