The IIES is seeking two research assistants/data analysts in economics. Within the scope of the job, you will provide support with data work for research projects in development economics and economic growth. The positions offer significant development opportunities for those interested in participating in internationally leading economic research.

Modern economic research increasingly relies on the analysis of large datasets. This presents challenges in terms of data collection, management, and analysis. We are looking for research assistants who can contribute experience and knowledge in data analysis. You will work closely with researchers at IIES and will be responsible for managing multiple parallel projects, documenting your work, and delivering within set deadlines. The tasks and environment provide you with the opportunity to gain significant experience in leading economic research practices.

We are seeking analytically minded candidates who are interested in social science and economic research. Backgrounds in data science, statistics, or other quantitative subjects are relevant. We are particularly interested in applicants with demonstrated experience in quantitative research, data processing, data scraping, text analysis, data visualization, and/or survey administration. Proficiency in software such as STATA, R, ArcGIS, and Python is highly desirable. The working language is English, and proficiency in both spoken and written English is expected.

Terms of Employment
The position is full-time and the start date is negotiable but no earlier than September 1, 2024. The employment is until June 30, 2025.
