About the Role
The research focused position involves both applied econometrics and applied macroeconomics, undertaking directed research on nowcasting and structural modelling as a member of a multi-institutional team.

Nowcasting is determining and understanding the current state of the economy. It is fundamental to macroeconomic policy making. The availability of new data and methods make it an exciting time to research nowcasting and there is the possibility of making a real policy impact.

The position is funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant “Nowcasting and Interpreting the Australian Economy” (DP230100959). The aim of this grant is to produce high- quality research papers developing novel nowcasting methodologies that will enable the timely interpretation of economic developments. Fiscal policy will be a particular area of focus. This work is intended to inform economic policy in Australia. The research team includes: Dr Tim Robinson, Professor Kalvinder Shields and Dr Yong Song (University of Melbourne), Professor Kevin Lee (University of Nottingham), Dr Luke Hartigan (University of Sydney), Mr David Stephan, Dr Khanh Hoang and Dr Zhuo Li (Australian Treasury).

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Collaborating with the Chief and Partner Investigators to conduct the research outlined in the grant
  • Conducting academic/engaged research under the direction of a supervisor
  • Producing and disseminating working papers and presentations based on academic research

Who We Are Looking For
You should have experience in at least two of the following areas: state-space modelling, factor models, Structural Vector AutoRegressions (SVARs), and Machine Learning algorithms like Recurrent Neural Networks. Additionally, you should possess knowledge of the relevant applied macroeconomic literature and the ability to apply it, including explaining economic motivations for identification strategies in SVAR. Furthermore, you must have knowledge of, and experience in, at least one of Matlab, R, Python, or similar. The ability to conduct independent research, take initiative, and assume responsibility for developing and completing research papers is crucial. You should also exhibit the ability and willingness to collaborate in teams for successful project outcomes, along with a track record in written communication skills.

You will also have:

  • A PhD or near completion of a PhD in economics or related field that demonstrates expertise tied to the externally funded project;
  • Highly developed interpersonal and oral communications skills
  • An interest in policy-relevant research and the dissemination of that research to non- academic audiences

The Bank is a thought leader and innovator in numerous areas. Among its most critical responsibilities:

  • Conducting leading-edge research and education on monetary policy, financial markets and stability, and important regional and national economic concerns.

  • Providing efficient, high-quality payments services for depository institutions.

  • Pursuing cooperative endeavors with business, community, and government leaders to address key local and regional economic issues, often with a focus on community development and economic opportunity.
  • Supporting and improving economic outcomes for the broader community, particularly low- and moderate-income individuals. This commitment is reflected in our research on race and its link to economic well-being, our Working Places community development programs, and our initiative to improve the quality of low-wage jobs.
  • Building institutional expertise and flexibility by identifying, engaging, and developing a highly trained and diverse staff.
  • Providing leadership to System initiatives and interacting with other regulatory bodies and central banks.

Opportunity Insights (OI) at Harvard University is hiring several full-time predoctoral fellows to start in Summer 2024 to work with our research group and under the direction of Raj Chetty, John Friedman, and Nathan Hendren. OI is a nonpartisan research and policy institute focused on improving economic opportunity. Founded in 2018, OI has become a nationally and internationally recognized leader in the science of economic mobility and in the use of large administrative data to understand and address inequality. OI has published seminal work on national trends in upward mobility; racial disparities; the role of neighborhoods, social capital, and higher education in upward mobility; and the use of private-sector data to understand disparate impacts in the recent economic recession and recovery. Much of the team’s ongoing research uses quasi-experimental methods to identify causal effects and test the predictions of economic and sociological models. Examples of current research projects include: long-term impacts of neighborhoods and place-based policies, the role of colleges in upward mobility, using big data to address health disparities, and measuring how social networks affect mobility. OI’s work has shaped policy discussions at the national and local level, with nearly a dozen of its studies covered on the front pages of major media outlets, such as the New York Times, The Economist, The Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal, and have been widely cited in policy discussions.

Fellows will be based at Harvard or Brown Universities under the direction of Professors Chetty, Friedman, and Hendren. The fellowship will include a variety of tasks that provide preparation for graduate school, such as analyzing data, developing statistical models, creating presentations, and editing research papers. In addition to working with OI faculty, predoctoral fellows frequently co-author papers with other students or faculty members. Fellows will interact regularly with professors and their collaborators – such as Stefanie DeLuca, David Deming, Matthew Jackson, Larry Katz, Theresa Kuchler, Michael Stepner, and Johannes Stroebel – in a team-oriented lab environment, with regular lab meetings, seminars, and other events. Fellows also have the opportunity to support our research translation and policy work through such resources as the Opportunity Atlas, the Social Capital Atlas, and the Economic Tracker.

Fellows are invited to participate in broader activities at Harvard and Brown, including seminars and courses. The program serves as an ideal bridge between college and graduate school for students interested in empirical economics. Most previous fellows have gone on to top Ph.D. programs. Salary and benefits are competitive with other top predoctoral fellowships.

As an organization focused on economic mobility, we value the many backgrounds, perspectives, and lived experiences in our community. We welcome applications from persons from underrepresented groups. Even if applicants are uncertain whether their technical research skill or subject-matter knowledge will be competitive, we strongly encourage applications.

Applicants should have completed a bachelor’s degree (or be on track to complete by July 2024) or master’s degree, have strong quantitative skills, and experience with empirical research methods. Candidates with research experience are strongly preferred, especially those with programming experience in Stata, SAS, R, and/or Python. Candidates need not be Economics majors, though they should have a strong interest in and some experience with Economics. Successful candidates have come from a variety of backgrounds (including from undergraduate and graduate programs, industry jobs, and other research assistant positions), and have a range of skill levels and experience with coding.

Fellowships will begin around July 1, 2024. Fellows typically work at OI full-time for two years before starting graduate school in Economics or another social science or pursuing other related career paths.

Committed to delivering on its promise of Truth and Reconciliation, McMaster University recognizes and acknowledges that it is located on the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee and Mississauga Nations, and within the lands protected by the Dish with One Spoon wampum agreement.

McMaster University seeks outstanding candidates for the prestigious Wilson College Endowed Chair in Leadership and Civic Studies.

The Wilson College Endowed Chair in Leadership and Civic Studies (hereafter, “the Chair”) will be affiliated with the Wilson College of Leadership and Civic Engagement, a newly formed collaborative academic unit between the Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Social Sciences at McMaster University. The Chairholder will be appointed for an initial term of five years, with the possibility of reappointment to a second five-year term. The Chairholder’s academic appointment will be a full-time tenured position at the rank of associate or full professor in an appropriate department in McMaster’s Faculty of Humanities or Faculty of Social Sciences. The appointment is expected to commence July 1, 2024.

The successful candidate will have an exceptional record of scholarly and educational contributions, and a desire to engage with external stakeholders in the public sector, the private sector, and the community and non-profit sector. We seek someone who can be appointed at the rank of Professor at the time of appointment or can reasonably be expected to achieve the rank of Professor within 1-2 years of appointment; therefore, applicants must have substantial experience at the Associate Professor level (or equivalent). Applicants must have a research program and scholarly contributions that are grounded solidly in the Canadian context, and/or Canada’s role internationally. Here research in the Canadian context is understood to include scholarship and knowledge keeping by and about Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. They will have specialized training in a relevant discipline or field in the Humanities or Social Sciences (Humanities and Social Science departments at McMaster include Anthropology, English and Cultural Studies; Communication Studies and Media Arts; Economics; French; Greek and Roman Studies; Health, Aging & Society; History; Indigenous Studies; Labour Studies; Linguistics; Philosophy; Political Science; Society, Culture and Religion; Sociology; the School of the Arts; and the School of Social Work). A record of interdisciplinary engagement is an asset. The Chair will be expected to contribute significantly to scholarship in the interdisciplinary area of Leadership and Civic Studies, to teach and supervise students from both Wilson College and the Chair’s home department, to engage with external audiences, to assist in the development of Wilson College and in building an equitable and diverse community of Wilson College scholars and students, and to contribute more generally to McMaster’s reputation for research and teaching excellence.

The Wilson College of Leadership and Civic Engagement under development at McMaster University trains future leaders to foster and sustain a civic culture for Canada that engages all citizens; it emphasizes the importance of collaboration between McMaster’s academic community and local, national, regional, and global leaders in building a stronger Canada and sustainable, resilient communities; and it integrates education, research, practice and public engagement to advance our understanding of how to create a civic culture for a flourishing Canada and a sustainable world.

The College’s innovative Leadership and Civic Studies undergraduate degree provides students with interdisciplinary theoretical and practical knowledge on leadership and civic engagement. The College nurtures future changemakers who will work across Canada and beyond in public service, the private sector, and civil society – to shape policy and public discourse for the greater good.

Located in the vibrant city of Hamilton, Ontario, McMaster University is dedicated to advancing human and societal health and well-being locally and globally, by promoting inclusive mindsets, collaborative learning, and innovative thinking. Ranked among the top 100 universities globally for its cutting-edge research and world-class teaching and learning, McMaster works across disciplines to find creative solutions to complex problems, helping to improve people’s lives and build a brighter future for all.

In the 2021-2022 academic year, the university enrolled more than 34,000 undergraduate and 5,600 graduate students.

Fixed term for 36 months, with the possibility of 24 months extension (externally funded with the possibility of extension based on funding).

This is an exciting postdoctoral opportunity to be part of an ambitious research and engagement programme on one of the most high-profile environmental issues. The postdoctoral position is 100% research. The successful post-holder will demonstrate a strong track record in environmental economics.

Providing sufficient financial resources and prioritisation is among the greatest challenges facing nature recovery. As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Environmental Economics, you will be working with a team of multidisciplinary researchers to conceptualise, develop and understand economic mechanisms and institutions that can limit biodiversity loss and promote nature recovery.

In addition to this work, you will have an opportunity to work on:

a) designing markets and contracts can support nature recovery.

b) designing and piloting technologies and tools that are able to reduce information asymmetries between providers of capital-seeking investment opportunities and nature recovery projects and programmes

c) developing approaches for assessing how to optimise the use of public and philanthropic funding to leverage private funding and finance into nature recovery

Reporting to Alexander Teytelboym, one of the Co-Investigators in the Leverhulme Centre, the post holder is an emerging leader in their field and brings to the post demonstrable research and teaching skills and expertise in environmental market design.

The Economic Frontiers (EF) Program at IIASA is looking to recruit two research scholars with a strong background in mathematical and/or empirical modeling in the fields of environmental, energy or welfare economics to work on the projects JUSTCOAL and MULTIFUTURES.

The roles For the JUSTCOAL project, the selected candidate will study the local economic impacts of gradual versus disruptive coal transition. Expertise in mathematical modeling and/or empirical research on topics in energy and environmental economics is desirable. For the mathematical modeling, optimal control theory will be employed to study the dynamic process of long-term coal phase-out. Some knowledge of optimal control theory and numerical solution methods would be an advantage for the project.

As consortium partner for the Horizon Europe MULTIFUTURES project, EF will lead a work package on innovative modeling design, in which clusters of CGE, energy and integrated assessment models are built to study, in an integrative way, the role of technological and lifestyle changes as pathways of the new policy scenarios. Candidates with sound knowledge of life-cycle/overlapping generations modeling, including their calibration and numerical solution would be ideal for this project. Knowledge of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) and model integration would be an additional asset for this research.

  • Interact and collaborate with EF project partners (Technical University Vienna for JUSTCOAL, a European consortium for MULTIFUTURES), and represent the program at consortium meetings.
  • Conduct cutting-edge research, publish findings in peer-reviewed journals, and engage in scientific conferences and workshops.
  • Represent the program in capacity building through seminar and webinar contributions and serve as a supervisor for participants of the annual IIASA Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP).
  • Actively engage with other researchers in EF and other IIASA programs, to establish joint research activities.
  • In line with the team spirit that prevails at IIASA, the incumbent may occasionally work on other tasks assigned by their supervisors, that might not be directly related to this appointment but where the post holder has relevant experience and skills, and/or a shortage of immediate personnel capabilities requires such.

Requirements

  • PhD degree in economics, management, public policy or other relevant disciplines; expertise and interest in mathematical and/or empirical economic modeling. Modeling and solution experience in environmental, energy or welfare economics would be an asset.
  • Commensurate publication record in leading high-impact journals in economics or relevant related fields.
  • Strong and demonstrated modeling skills and programming proficiency in MATLAB, Julia or related packages for mathematical modeling and numerical implementation.
  • Proven competence in statistics/econometrics and experience with relevant statistical packages e.g., R, STATA and/or Python for empirical economic modeling.
  • Innovative and critical thinking.
  • Willingness to engage with stakeholders in communicating and devising research.
  • Fluency in English and excellent presentation skills.
  • IIASA offers an interdisciplinary and international workplace, and the possibility to interact with researchers of different nationalities, with strong ties to a world-wide network of research institutions engaged in environmental systems research.
