SIEPR Postdoctoral Fellowships in Applied Economic Policy

The Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) annually awards postdoctoral fellowships in applied or policy economics. The goal of the fellowships is for promising new Ph.D. recipients to continue applied policy work before entering the academic job market. The stipend is approximately $110,000 per twelve months plus support for a research assistant and funds for travel. Recipients can be in any applied policy research area but must have completed or be expected to complete their Ph.D. no earlier than one year prior to their anticipated start date.

SIEPR is a Stanford University research institute and is closely tied to the economics department, business school and law school at Stanford. SIEPR scholars conduct studies on important economic policy issues in the United States and other countries. SIEPR's goal is to inform and advise policy makers and the public, and to guide their decisions with sound policy analysis. In the course of their research, SIEPR faculty train, educate, and support Ph.D. students as future economic policy analysts.
