California Homelessness Project - Professor Mark Duggan

Professor Mark Duggan is looking for a predoctoral research fellow for a one or two-year term, to begin during the summer of 2022 [no later than September 15, 2022]. The position will involve research assistance for new projects on California with a focus on the causes, consequences, and policy response to rising homelessness. The projects will work on understanding patterns in administrative data, with a focus on the impact of past policies and actionable policy implications going forward. The fellow will receive exposure to and training in a broad set of applied microeconomics research methods, and experience analyzing large and complex data sets, working with programs such as Stata, SAS, R, and GIS, and will become knowledgeable about current policies at the state and local government level (and possibly interventions by non-profit or other organizations) targeting homelessness in California and other states.

For full consideration, candidates should submit all application materials by Friday, May 27 (by 5pm). The position will remain open until filled.
