Full Text of JOE Listing:

In partnership with India’s IFMR LEAD, Evidence for Policy Design at Harvard’s Center for International Development is currently recruiting a Post-Doctoral Fellow. The Fellow will lead a portfolio of several research projects in South Asia, with a focus on governance especially in areas of environment and gender. The position will allow the selected candidate an opportunity to gain first-hand experience conducting empirical research at the forefront of economic research and public policy. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will contribute to research design and implementation of an agreed upon project portfolio with responsibilities including supporting research design, overseeing data collection and analysis, and managing grants.

This position requires a self-starting candidate with proven expertise in applied economics research who can effectively navigate India's institutional landscape and appropriately represent EPoD and IFMR to outside stakeholders. The position will allow a talented early career researcher the opportunity to work directly with top academics from Harvard to begin building their own research portfolio. This position will be based in Delhi, India, with frequent travel throughout the country, and possibly the region, expected. The fellowship is a 1-year position with the possibility of a 1-year extension upon mutual agreement. Full details are available at:
