The Department of Economics is announcing up to three fulltime positions as a Research Assistant

Department of Economics

All three positions are of limited duration – starting on August 28, 2023 and lasting until next summer, at most to July 31, 2024. The posts will be based at the SSE premises in the heart of Stockholm and we offer 25 000 SEK as monthly wage (with additional pension and social security contributions).

The primary task of the RA will be to assist faculty at the Department of Economics in research related tasks. This can, for example, consist of preparing data sets, implementing econometric analysis, working on developing questionnaires, help in making presentations, figures or surveying parts of a literature. One of the RA positions will also work as a teaching assistant for two BSc- or MSc courses during the academic year.

Good knowledge of Stata or R (statistical software packages) is essential. Familiarity with other research tools such as Matlab or LateX or computing languages such as Python or Julia is a strong advantage. Applicants should have at least a bachelor’s degree in Economics or Finance by the time that the positions start but more advanced studies are a merit.

Research Assistants are offered an office and considered an integral part of the research environment at the department, including mentorship from a designated faculty member at the Department of Economics. The positions offer a pathway to doctoral studies through a direct engagement in research and personal mentorship from faculty. They are also attractive as an intermediate step for other careers. Past candidates have gone on to reputed PhD programs in Europe and the US, as well as to careers in policy-oriented organizations.

We will start reviewing applications on April 17, 2023. The application should include a record of courses taken and grades, the most advanced academic paper you have written, a short letter of motivation, and the name of two references.

We look forward to receiving your application.
