Full Text of JOE Listing:

NBER’s Post-Doctoral Fellowship on Long-Term Fiscal Policy, supported by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, enables two outstanding early-career economists to visit NBER’s Cambridge headquarters for one year of intensive research on economic aspects of long-term fiscal policy. Topics might include taxation, entitlement programs, government borrowing, and related issues. Applications from researchers who are just completing their PhDs, as well as from junior faculty members who may be able to combine this fellowship with an early career leave, are welcome.

Up to two fellowships will be awarded for academic year 2018-2019. Each fellowship will provide a stipend of $75,000, reimbursement for health insurance, a travel and research allowance, and an office at the NBER. Fellows will work at the NBER’s office, and fellowship related activities are expected to represent the fellow’s primary responsibility during the year.

Applicants must have completed their PhD by June, 2018. NBER strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans. The NBER may be able to sponsor the fellowship recipient for a J-1 visa under its research scholars program.
