NBER's Post-Doctoral Fellowship on New Perspectives on Agricultural Economics, supported by the Economic Research Service at the United States Department of Agriculture, provides the opportunity for an early-career agricultural economist to visit NBER's Cambridge headquarters for a year of intensive research on topics that involve the economics of the agricultural sector, the interactions between agriculture and other sectors of the economy, and the role of environmental changes, including climate change, on agriculture.
Applications from researchers just completing their PhDs, as well as from junior faculty who may be able to combine the fellowship with early career leave, are welcome.
The fellowship will provide a 12-month stipend of $100,000, reimbursement for health insurance, a travel and research allowance, and an office at the NBER.
Applicants must have completed their PhD in agricultural economics by June 2024. NBER strongly encourages applications from women, members of groups that have been under-represented in the economics profession, individuals with disabilities, and veterans. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents.
