STANFORD OPPORTUNITY LAB PRE-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS

STANFORD OPPORTUNITY LAB PRE-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS

Full-Time Research Assistant Positions
Professors Raj Chetty, John N. Friedman, and Nathaniel Hendren

We are looking to hire several full-time pre-doctoral fellows for the academic year 2018-19 to work with our research group on the Equality of Opportunity Project. The overarching mission of the project is to develop scalable policy solutions that will empower families throughout the United States to rise out of poverty and achieve better life outcomes. We pursue this mission primarily by conducting rigorous, scientific research that harnesses the power of “big data” using an interdisciplinary approach. Current projects study the long-term impacts of neighborhoods, the role of colleges as a pathway to upward mobility, the determinants of innovation and entrepreneurship, and how social networks may affect poverty. The research uses “big data” and quasi-experimental methods to identify causal effects and test the predictions of economic and sociological models. Recent results from these projects have appeared in the New York Times and have been cited in the President's State of the Union address.

We anticipate positions available in Stanford CA, Cambridge MA, Providence RI, and Washington D.C. under the direction of Professors Chetty, Friedman, and Hendren. The fellowship will include a variety of tasks that provide preparation for graduate school, such as analyzing data, developing statistical models, creating presentations, and editing research papers. In addition to working with faculty as research assistants, the pre-doctoral fellows frequently co- author papers with other students or faculty members. Fellows will interact regularly with professors and their collaborators – such as David Deming, Matthew Jackson, and Emmanuel Saez –in a team-oriented lab environment, with weekly lab meetings and other informal events. The program serves as an ideal bridge between college and graduate school for students interested in empirical economics. Most previous fellows have gone on to top Ph.D. programs. Salary will be competitive.

Applicants should be completing (or have completed) a Bachelors or Master’s degree and have strong quantitative and programming skills. Candidates with research experience are strongly preferred, especially those with experience in Stata, SAS, R, Python, or Hadoop. Candidates need not be Economics majors, though they should have a strong interest in and some experience with Economics. Candidates would ideally begin on June 1, 2018 and work for us for two years before applying to graduate school in Economics or another quantitative social science.

To apply, please:
1) Submit a formal application through Stanford (Job Number: 76029)

page1image21240page1image21408page1image21568page1image21728page1image21888page1image22048page1image22368

2) Upload your resume, cover letter (optional), resume, transcripts, and a writing sample through our group's online form.

Questions can be directed to Sarah Merchant and Jamie Gracie at chettylab@gmail.com. We will review applications, conduct interviews, and make offers in two rounds: one in mid-fall and one in late-winter. Applications received by October 31, 2017, will be eligible for the first round. First-round decisions will be announced around November 15, 2017. All applications received before February 28, 2018 will be considered for the second round, and those decisions will be made around March 15, 2018.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do you sponsor visas for international candidates? Yes, we sponsor J-1 and H-1B visas.

2. What kind of writing sample should I submit?
The writing sample should ideally be an economics research paper, but you may submit whatever you feel best demonstrates your analytic and writing abilities. It can be any length.

3. Can I get feedback on my application?
Given the number of applications we receive, we are sorry that we cannot provide individual feedback.

4. What are you looking for in an applicant?
Successful applicants have strong transcripts including advanced courses in economics, math, or computer science. We look for demonstrated interest in and experience with economics research, through the writing sample and resume. US citizens with a background in computer science are particularly encouraged to apply.

5. Are there any summer research assistant opportunities?
Our group only hires full-year pre-doctoral fellows. We encourage students to apply in the final year of their undergraduate or master’s program.

In addition, candidates should be able to accurately interpret and analyze legislative proposals, often handling multiple assignments at the same time, and have a desire to work on income security and education issues of current interest to the Congress.

    How to Apply

    JPMorgan and Travel to China for Business Exposure

    JPMorgan and Travel to China for Business Exposure

    We would like to invite you to the “China Insight” Trek this coming August, with a focus on China’s rural country development & agriculture sector.

     

    Held by World Youth Development Forum, “China Insight” Trek aims to offer students 360 degree view of China through structured visit. In the past 10+ years, we visited the State Council, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Commerce, Development and Reform Commission, the Bank of China, Alibaba, Didi, etc. We also met many high-level state and business leaders, such as the Vice Premier of PRC, the Governor of People’s Bank of China, Vice President of Alibaba, Vice President of China Development Bank; etc.

     

    Please check out a video introduction of WYDF “China Insight” Trek 2016 throughhttp://english.cri.cn/12394/2016/03/31/4201s922586.htm and a video sharing from our former trekker Michael He of Harvard College at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cv-0vAqF_g if you are interested.

    Each “China Insight” Trek has different theme and focus. 2017 August’s “China Insight” Trek’s theme is “Fast Developing Rural Countries”. It will start on August 9th in Beijing and finish on August 22th in Jinhua. During the 14-day trip, we will spend the first few days in Beijing to get to know central government and its policy, and spend the rest time in Jinhua, a rural country in Zhejiang province, to get first-hand experience of China’s rural country development.

    This trek will combine a good amount of high-level official events and rural country entities visit with typical cultural and leisure activities, such as visiting historical places of interests. You will have the opportunity to interact with a diverse range of people and get an insider’s perspective of the "real" China, especially its developing strategy.

    Just to give you a quick taste of what you will get:

    • Interaction with high-level Chinese government officials

    • In-depth economics & policy seminar with top-notched academics and businessmen

    • Onsite visit to private enterprises and rural countries in China

    • Chinese family visit & dinner

    • World-renowned tourist attractions: the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the West Lake

    • Authentic local delicacies: Peking duck and Zhejiang delicacies

    • 1 on 1 Chinese study buddy to help you understand China better

    English-speaking tour guides will be available during the trip. In addition, we will pair 1 trekker with 1 Chinese student to help you know China better in Jinhua.

    The cost of the trip, which is generously partially subsidized by our local hosts, is about $2000 per person, which NOT includes international flight, but includes meals, domestic transportation, double occupancy at hotels, tips to tour guides, attraction tickets, etc. You are also required to obtain your visa to China (about $140 for US citizens, US$30 for non-US citizens), and purchase any necessary medical / emergency insurance.

    Our application deadline is 11:59 PM on April 30th, 2017. To ensure a high-quality experience, we intend to limit the number of attendees. If you are interested, we strongly encourage you to apply ASAP through this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeLl3YeSWUqkQSHLYZzrsX58CAHa1NWqy9mIpZj3bLFqRHFxQ/viewform.
