Full-Time RA Opportunity at Harvard

I’m an associate professor in the Harvard economics department and am looking to hire a highly-skilled and motivated full-time RA to start this summer or earlier. This RA will work closely with me on research projects in labor economics. (For examples of past projects, candidates can visit ) I was wondering if you could send the attached job description to interested students or if there is a place to post job ads, post it there as well. If you or the candidates have any questions, feel free to email me at <> < <> > .

I look forward to hearing from your students.
