The Institute for Policy Integrity at New York University School of Law seeks a postdoctoral research fellow in economics. Applicants should hold a PhD in economics by July 2014. Candidates with a strong background in econometrics and a focus on environmental economics, public economics, applied microeconomics, or I-O analysis are encouraged to apply. Applicants who are familiar with cost-benefit analysis will receive priority consideration. The appointment is for August 2014 to July 2015, with the option to renew for a second year. Economic fellows are expected to conduct research for Policy Integrity in conjunction with legal fellows, to be released as reports, policy briefs, and journal articles. Fellows will have the opportunity to engage in independent research.
Policy Integrity uses economics and law to ensure that the costs and benefits of government policies are accurately assessed and considered in the regulatory process. We also contribute original scholarly research on energy, the environment, and public health and safety. For further information see http://policyintegrity.org/.
Applications should include a CV, job market paper, research statement, and cover letter. Three reference letters should be independently submitted by referees. Submit all application materials electronically to Peter Howard at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1, 2013.
