Full Text of JOE Listing:

NBER’s Post-Doctoral Fellowship on the Economics of an Aging Workforce, supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, enables an outstanding early-career economist to visit NBER’s Cambridge office for one year of intensive research on economic aspects of the labor market activity of older workers. Topics may include labor market issues affecting older workers, such as the determinants of work and retirement behavior, age discrimination, or the role of workplace attributes in facilitating work. 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.

The fellowship offers a $75,000 stipend for academic year 2018-2019, reimbursement for health insurance, and an office at the NBER’s Cambridge headquarters. The fellow is expected to spend the academic year at the NBER and to participate in the activities of the NBER’s Aging and Labor Studies Programs. 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.
