Hiring Pre-Docs/RAs?

In the spirit of making economics more inclusive, the EEA and EconJobMarket.org are excited to announce a new service to help you find potential economics research assistants and pre-docs and thereby open up the pipeline into these roles. Starting now, you can advertise such positions and manage job applications with ease and at no cost on EconJobMarket.org.

Pre-Doc/RA jobs are becoming increasingly important as an entry point to the economics career ladder, and our goal is to make EconJobMarket.org the go-to place for recent graduates and aspiring researchers looking for this type of opportunities. This will help candidates to find and apply to a greater range of vacancies and it will help researchers to recruit from a broader and more diverse pool of candidates, thereby reducing barriers to entry.

If you have any such positions coming up in the coming months or starting next summer, we encourage you to post your Pre-Doc/RA adverts at EconJobMarket now. This will help us achieve a critical mass of job adverts in the platform, which will in turn make EconJobMarket more attractive for candidates and future recruiters.

You can find detailed instructions on how to post your adverts here.
