RA positions in Stanford and Washington DC for 2017-18 (deadline to apply: March 1)

John Friedman, Nathaniel Hendren, and Raj Chetty are looking to hire several students for their Equality of Opportunity Project pre-doctoral fellows program. These positions will be based either at Stanford or in Washington DC for academic year 2016-17.

They are looking for students to work with them for 1-2 years after they graduate from college (or a Masters program). In addition to working closely with them as research assistants, the pre-doctoral fellows typically co-author papers with other students or faculty. The program thus serves as a good bridge between college and graduate school for students interested in applied microeconomics.

Further details and application instructions are available in the attached document or this website.

They are accepting applications until March 1, 2017.
