We are again looking to recruit 2-4 new researchers to join IFS next autumn. We recruit exceptionally talented students direct from an undergraduate degree or with a master’s degree. We are looking for highly motivated students who have shown an unusual aptitude for economics, preferably combined with an interest in policy issues and a taste for numerical work.
IFS has a phenomenal record in training economists. Many of our staff eventually go on to academic position in the UK’s and the world’s best universities, while others go on to pursue successful careers in the media, civil service and international organizations. Researchers at IFS have the chance to carry out in-depth economic research and also to communicate their findings to politicians, journalists, academics and many others. We aim to cultivate a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment, encouraging staff to develop their skills, through further study, ad-hoc training and by giving them opportunities to get involved with all aspects of research and communication right from the start.
Details on the role can be found on our website (www.ifs.org.uk/jobs). The closing date for applications is 20 January 2017, and interviews will be held at the end of February.
