Education Research Alliance for New Orleans seeks a post-doctoral fellow with interest in market-based school reform and college access to conduct and publish original research related to two ongoing projects: (a) a large randomized trial of financial aid for low-income high school students and (b) market-based New Orleans school reforms post Hurricane Katrina. ERA-New Orleans is a collaborative interdisciplinary research center. Researchers also work in collaboration with practitioners.

The fellow will carry out applied econometric research, leveraging extensive student-level linked datasets linked to surveys and other data sources.

The remaining time will be available for the Fellow to work on other projects. Teaching is not required.

Required Education and Experience:
1. PhD in economics, psychology, sociology, education, public policy or related field
2. Experience and training in econometric analysis of student-level education data to address questions related to school reform and/or college access.
