Undergraduate Research Assistant openings

The Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) has many paid openings throughout the year for undergraduate research assistants. Undergraduate RAs work directly with SIEPR faculty on research and data acquisition. Undergraduate RAs are hired on a quarterly basis and paid a standard rate of $17/hour.

Summer RAs are expected to work forty hours per week, some of which may be devoted to organized program activities and to exploring independent research topics. RAs will have the option to attend and participate actively in organized events – seminars and luncheons – organized by the Economics department. Each RA will receive a stipend of $7,500 for ten weeks of full-time research work (reduced pro rata if the period of work is less).

This program is available only to currently enrolled Stanford undergraduates. Positions are posted until filled. If you are interested, please apply early. Applications are reviewed as they are received. For questions about the program, please contact
