Full Text of JOE Listing:

NBER’s Fellowship Program in Aging and Health Research, supported by the National Institute on Aging, gives trainees exposure to a wide range of NBER research projects related to the economics of aging and health. Participating fellows pursue independent research while benefiting from opportunities for regular interaction with the Bureau’s large network of prominent investigators in this field.

Successful applications will respond to NIH priorities for Health Economics Research by describing projects focused on health outcomes and behaviors, with a clear and explicit connection to an improved understanding of health. (

The fellowship offers a 12-month stipend of $23,376 along with carrel space and use of computer facilities at the Bureau’s Cambridge office; tuition support; and limited funds for travel and research expenses. Fellows are expected to spend the academic year at the NBER.

Applicants must be US Citizens or lawfully admitted for permanent residence, and enrolled as a PhD student in the greater Boston area. Students from other PhD programs who will be resident in the Boston area during the fellowship may also apply.

NBER strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans.
