Canada will be investing heavily in renewable energy systems in Northern, Indigenous and remote communities over the foreseeable future, with a goal of achieving full energy security for these communities. We are seeking a dynamic and engaging scholar to join Canada’s leading research community on renewable energy development in Northern, Indigenous, remote and rural communities as a Centennial Chair in Community Energy Development. Centennial Chairs are created and funded by the University in areas of strategic importance and are intended to recruit and retain outstanding faculty with strong research profiles. The successful candidate will be appointed to a tenured or tenure-track position at a rank commensurate with qualifications (at either the assistant or associate professor rank), and the Chair will be awarded for a five-year term, renewable once.

The successful candidate should possess quantitative skills and capacity in modelling applications to understand the broader socio-economic impact of energy development in these communities. Experience working with communities to enhance the socio-economic potential of community energy development or community economic development is an asset. Applicants with relevant research experience in developing economy contexts, agricultural, Indigenous and/or rural communities, technology and change, environmental and energy economics, or in the resource sectors are encouraged to apply. The search committee will consider scholars from various disciplines including economics, engineering, environmental studies, economic geography, or other relevant disciplines. The Centennial Chair will establish the leading program of research and training in Canada to inform the socio-economic implications of this energy transition and to understand the value proposition for host communities.

The School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) is a premier site internationally for practicing use-inspired and community-engaged scholarship. Our faculty are committed to engaging Indigenous peoples and knowledge in research and teaching, and we emphasize hands-on experiential learning in our graduate programs. Our focus on community energy development will advance our ability to connect with other units on campus, strengthen the policy relevance of our research and contribute to a sustainability focused curriculum.

As a tenure-track faculty member in SENS, the successful candidate will be expected to establish a substantive, externally funded research program in applied community energy development with applications to rural and remote communities, especially Indigenous and Northern communities. With an important emphasis on the global energy transition and the new opportunities for local communities to develop their own energy projects through renewable energy, the research program is expected to adapt or develop models to measure the impact of local, renewable energy projects for sustainable economies, rural development, and community quality of life, among other issues. The successful candidate will also teach courses in the Economics of Community Energy Development and in Economic Valuation of Environmental Sustainability; advise graduate students in our MES and PhD programs, and a new Master’s program in Energy Security (under development); engage in community outreach activities aligned with the faculty member's research and teaching expertise; and, participate in broad-based university and departmental committee work and professional service.

The Golub Capital Social Impact Lab has an opening for a 2 year position as a post-doctoral fellow, working Professor Susan Athey and other faculty affiliates of the lab. The position involves working on a set of projects revolving around educational technology (one position) and around financial services and financial inclusion (one position) and serving as project manager and collaborator on research projects, as a coauthor on some projects and as an assisting researcher on others. It also requires interfacing with industry partners and supervising research assistants at various levels of seniority.

The ideal candidate is either preparing for an industry position, for example in a technology company, or an academic position in a field closely aligned with the lab, for which collaboration on the lab’s projects would serve as strong preparation. This position does not incorporate independent research by the fellow outside the scope of the lab; any independent research would be conducted outside of regular work hours and should be managed so as to not present a conflict of commitment to the lab.  

 

Depending on the fellow’s skills and interests, the fellowship will create the opportunity to: create novel experimental designs, including adaptive and dynamic treatment regimes, bandits, and contextual bandits; run the experiments in collaboration with technology firms or on tech firm platforms; use and develop cutting edge methodology for working with large data sets, using university infrastructure or the infrastructure of tech firms; including tools of machine learning and causal inference; develop coding expertise for publicly released software; and/or develop expertise in managing large-scale empirical projects with large code bases written by teams.

J-PAL Title: Manager in Research, Education, and Training

Exceptional candidates with more than the required job experience may be considered for a role as Senior Manager.

Reports To: Director of Research, Education, and Training, J-PAL Global

Employer: Massachusetts Institute of Technology 

Location: Cambridge, MA, USA

Start Date: earliest possible, ideally before June 2020

Length of Commitment: Two years or more

Education: Minimum Masters degree, PhD strongly preferred

Experience: 4+ years of relevant experience with a Masters degree, 0-2 years of relevant experience with a PhD including teaching and research experience during graduate school.

We are hiring a Manager for our Research team within J-PAL Global’s Research, Education, and Training (RET) group. Our team of 14, including five economics and political science PhDs, cares deeply about research transparency, data quality, and new methods in RCT and social science research. We are always looking for ways to improve current research and data collection practices and creating tools and materials that help others who conduct RCTs.

In this role, you will be responsible for our research transparency and RCT methods portfolio, which includes operating the AEA Social Science Registry, publishing RCT data on the Harvard dataverse, creating and publishing a new RCT data catalog, and tracking affiliates’ research publications. These projects contribute in important ways to the transparency, accessibility, and efficiency of research. The registry creates  a record of the universe of RCTs being conducted, while the aim of the data catalog project is to create a central record that makes RCT data findable, filterable, and optimally accessible for secondary research. You will work with other staff to survey how RCT data is used in secondary research projects, and how we can support such research. This work includes surveying users about what types of projects they do with RCT data, thinking about the properties of RCT data, and reading associated research papers; with the aim of creating better ways of searching and documenting such data sets. Through these activities, you will gain a comprehensive overview of the newest methodological and RCT research in applied economics.

In addition to the research transparency work, you will take a key role in the development of new public research resources and training materials for research staff. This includes independent work on the writing of research resources for staff, developing data analysis tools, reviewing reference and teaching materials for research staff, and developing staff training courses. You will work closely with your counterparts in our regional offices in North America, Chile, France, India, Indonesia, and South Africa as well as staff from J-PAL’s partner organizations, like Innovations for Poverty Action and the Center for Effective Global Action.

All RET staff have the opportunity to attend MIT Economics seminars, lunch talks, and research teas, and interact frequently with faculty affiliates, full-time research staff, and postdoctoral associates.  You can take classes at MIT, and participate in a range of professional development opportunities, such as attending conferences. 

Your responsibilities will include:

·       Oversee our portfolio of research transparency activities and represent J-PAL’s research transparency work;

·       Develop and pursue a funding strategy in cooperation with J-PAL leadership, write grants, and oversee the reporting on the Research group’s funded activities to sponsors;

·       Think systematically about RCT data, its properties, and how it is used, such as by surveying users and reading associated research papers, and use this to lead the creation of a “metadata” catalog for published RCT data;

·       Oversee the documentation and preparation of research datasets for publication, including gathering “metadata” used in methods research, and building tools that streamline and facilitate these tasks for our research partners;

·       Lead the development of new tools for J-PAL research projects (such as the development of code, packages, programs, etc.) that increase the efficiency of research staff;

·       Research and design new teaching modules and prepare presentations, case studies, and manuals to train researchers, research staff, and policymakers on randomized evaluation methods and the responsible use of data in research;

·       Teach lectures and modules in J-PAL courses domestically and internationally;

·       Carry out or contribute to original research projects related to applied microeconomics, policy, poverty alleviation, or randomized evaluation and methods of causal inference.

·       Other assignments as needed as the position grows.

Skills and qualifications:

  • Education: A PhD in economics, political science, education, public policy, or other related fields. Significant training in and a strong technical understanding of randomized impact evaluations is necessary. Exceptional candidates with a Masters degree may be considered. 
  • Experience: 1-2 years of relevant experience with a PhD (including up to one year of full time equivalent teaching and research experience during graduate school). 4+ years of relevant experience with a Masters degree. Clear evidence of experience with rigorous quantitative data analysis and direct involvement in research is required. You should be comfortable with presenting to technical and non-technical audiences and preparing tailored teaching materials. Experience in conducting field research in developing countries with a background in randomized evaluations is required. Experience in management and collaboration in international teams is a plus. Candidates with more than two years of experience post PhD may be considered for an Senior Manager position.
  • Interest in Development and Policy: Strong interest in poverty alleviation policy and research, as demonstrated by coursework and research and teaching experience. International development experience or extensive experience in social policy in other settings is desired.
  • Quantitative skills: Knowledge of data management, data analysis, and econometrics is required.
  • Software: PowerPoint and Excel required; must have good command of Stata, or have knowledge of R, Python, or other analytics programs plus the ability and willingness to quickly learn Stata. Julia, Matlab, Github, ArcGis, and other packages are a plus.

 

Benefits

As a member of the MIT community, you benefit from more than just your salary.J-PAL hires highly qualified staff and rewards them accordingly. Total compensation packages are competitive for the non-profit international development field with excellent MIT benefits, including comprehensive health insurance, a 401(k) match and pension-based retirement plan, tuition assistance, commuter benefits, MIT community discounts, a generous vacation policy, and more. We like working at MIT and think you will too.

The new Center for Analytical Approaches to Social Innovation (CAASI) at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) at University of Pittsburgh is accepting applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellow position for 2020-2022. Candidate should have a strong background in mathematical modeling and be passionate about improving social good service delivery. Knowledge of computational, empirical, or experimental methods is highly valued. The first year of the postdoc will be partly funded by an NSF grant and will involve market design work on an innovative transit market (PittSmartLiving).

The broader goal of the center is to connect mathematical social science research more closely to practical issues in serving vulnerable populations. Some of CAASI activities in support of this goal include hosting the 2020 NBER Decentralization conference on theme of Mechanism Design for Vulnerable Populations and organizing university-wide applied theory reading group involving PhD students from Economics, AI, and Public Policy. We have projects at different stages with worker unions (PittWageStudy), non-profits serving the previously incarcerated, human services emergency hotlines (United Way 211), and Pittsburgh open data portal (WPRDC). We also have long standing collaborations with Pittsburgh Experimental Economics Lab, the School of Social Work, the School of Computing and Information, and the multi-institution AI-Econ research group MD4SG.

The stipend is $50k and includes employee benefits (medical, vision, dental, life insurance, transit access) as well as $1.5k per year in conference/travel funding. Funds for experiments may also be available, depending on the fit between the topic and available grants. There will be no teaching obligations but teaching can be arranged if desired by the candidate. The start date is negotiable (Summer/Fall 2020). Review of applications will begin Feb 1, 2020, and will continue until the position is filled or until April 30,2020.

The candidate should have completed or be near completion of a PhD in microeconomics, computer science or similar fields. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, copies of written work, and a motivation letter/project proposal that demonstrate an understanding of social service provision and how the candidate's expertise fills a gap in research or practice. Two letters of reference should be sent directly by the referees. Applications and request for further information can be submitted through EJM or emailed to me (linardi@pitt.edu).
