Application Deadline Open until filled


We are looking for a highly skilled and motivated individual to work as full-time research professional. The start date is subject to negotiation, but may be as early as July 1, 2020.

This position is ideal for someone who is planning to go to graduate school in economics, finance, or a related field. You will work with and be supervised by NYU Stern Professors Robert Engle (winner of the 2003 Nobel Prize in Economics) and Johannes Stroebel. Among other things, you will work on projects at the intersection of economics and climate change. Many of the projects will involve extensive work with large data sets and the use of machine learning tools. Preference will be given to candidates with prior experience of working with statistical software such as Stata and R. Experience with machine learning tools is also highly valued. The last two holders of this position have joined PhD programs at Harvard and Berkeley.


The ideal candidate will have:

(i) a strong quantitative background;

(ii) strong computer skills including programming (Stata, R, Python, and/or Matlab are a strong plus) as well as experience with machine learning tools;

(iii) an ability to work independently to solve problems; and

(iv) a long-term interest in pursuing research in economics and or finance.

Background in economics is a plus, but not necessary – we welcome candidates with strong technical backgrounds who are looking for more exposure to economics and finance before applying to graduate school. The position is based in New York City, and the successful candidate will be able to participate in the academic life at NYU, including the ability to attend research seminars and PhD courses.
