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.
