To be successful, you will have a doctoral qualification in econometrics or statistics (or equivalent relevant research experience), well developed skills in computationally intensive methods (especially if these incorporate bootstrapping methods), an ability to work both independently and as a member of a team, and demonstrated written and communication skills (publications or presentations).
