The Economic Studies Program at the Brookings Institution is conducting our annual Research Assistant recruitment. Each year we employ approximately twelve research assistants for one or two year appointments, preferably beginning between June 1 and August 1. This year, we are seeking to hire approximately five new assistants.

Research Assistant positions in Economic Studies are entry-level and involve verification of statistical and other material in manuscripts, statistical calculations, literature searches, and computer work. This position offers no opportunity for independent research during the first year. This position is best suited for those who have received an undergraduate degree in Economics, Mathematics, or other social sciences with a minor in Economics. Furthermore, this position best serves those who plan to go on to graduate school but prefer to work a year or two before doing so.

We believe this is an excellent opportunity for recent graduates. The job posting is here:">

Please note that applicants will need to submit a cover letter, resume, two letters of recommendation, and a transcript. The application deadline is February 17, 2017.
