Successful candidates will have a PhD in Economics and interest in working in an interdisciplinary environment.
Research Associates require strong quantitative skills with demonstrated expertise in research methods, preferably through course work or experience in a relevant research position. In addition, this role requires proficiency with statistical software packages (such as STATA, R, SAS or SPSS), exposure to policy related issues, project management experience and excellent communication skills, both verbal and written.
