Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Development Research Group (DECRG) of the World Bank is seeking to recruit researchers. DECRG conducts policy-relevant research on development in low- and middle-income countries. Most researchers in DECRG have a PhD in economics. However, we are open to hiring highly qualified researchers working on development from other fields. Researchers are expected to maintain an outstanding scholarly publication record, and provide relevant policy advice and technical expertise to colleagues throughout the World Bank, and to policymakers in client countries.

We are open to applications from candidates with interests in all fields relevant to development. We seek candidates with (i) strong technical skills; (ii) a record of – or good prospects for –publication of high-quality original research in peer-reviewed journals, (iii) the ability to communicate technical knowledge and expertise in a policy environment; and (iv) excellent spoken and written proficiency in English. We are primarily considering new PhDs but open to candidates with relevant post-doctoral academic or non-academic experience.

For the application through the JOE online system, please upload your CV, cover letter, job market paper, and three academic references. Please include a link to your personal website (if you have one) on your CV.
