Predoctoral Research Fellowship Opportunities
SIEPR/Economics Predoctoral Research Fellowship Program
Fellows are appointed as non-matriculated graduate students and have the opportunity to fully engage in the intellectual life at Stanford University. They dedicate a significant portion of their time to an empirical research project and can take courses at Stanford University for credit (up to one 3-unit course per quarter). The fellowship offers tuition, health insurance, and a living stipend.
Diversity and Inclusivity
The SIEPR Predoctoral Research Fellow program is committed to creating inclusive research spaces for all. We value diverse backgrounds and perspectives and are a proud participant of Pathways to Research and Doctoral Careers (PREDOC). The goal of our program is to help foster the growth of the next generation of researchers in economics and public policy.
We seek applicants who have an interest in pursuing research related to economic policy and in learning cutting-edge research methods. Prior background is not strictly necessary; candidates interested in gaining exposure to the project areas of research are very welcome to apply.
- Completion of a 4-year undergraduate degree by June 30, 2024. The degree should be a bachelor's, or foreign equivalent, in economics, statistics, applied mathematics, or a related field.
- Strong quantitative background and interest in learning cutting-edge research methods.
- Creative and independent problem-solving skills.
- An interest in pursuing research related to economics and/or the project field of interest. However, prior background in these areas is not strictly necessary; candidates interested in gaining exposure to the project areas of research are very welcome to apply.
- The programming experience required varies and will be outlined in the posting for each research project.
The program enables our faculty to expand their research capacity on policy-relevant topics. By expanding the talent pool from which future contributions to the economic policy will be made, we directly contribute to SIEPR’s mission of engaging future scholars in high-quality economic policy research.
