Clément DE CHAISEMARTIN is looking to recruit two Research Assistants from September 2022 to July 2023 (but may start as early as June 2022).

The research assistants will upgrade and extend Professor Chaisemartin’s Stata and R packages, and notably those for two‐way fixed effects and difference‐in‐differences analysis, namely twowayfeweights and did_multiplegt. The research assistants may also use those packages in some empirical applications.

The research assistants may also assist users of those packages that contact Professor Chaisemartin with questions. 

Ideally, the research assistant would work full time, though applicants available at least 3 days per week, including 2 days in‐person at Sciences Po, will also be considered (in this case, please mention your part‐time availability in your cover letter).

Candidates should meet the following requirements:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Economics or an equivalent degree. 
  • A solid training in econometrics and in methods for causal inference is required. Some formal training in programming/Computer Sciences is a plus. 
  • The applicant needs to have advanced programming skills in Stata and R. Having already programmed Stata and/or R packages is a plus. 
  • Fluent in English.

Candidates are invited to submit a CV, a cover letter and a transcript of the required degree, by email to Pilar CALVO-ALVAREZ.
Please indicate "Research Assistant Sciences Po – ANR REALLYCREDIBLE" as the subject of your email.

NB Your CV should include the name and e‐mail address of a professor that can serve as a professional reference, and that Professor Chaisemartin may contact. If the applicant has already programmed Stata and/or R packages, those should be described in the cover letter, with a link the packages can be downloaded from.

All candidates will be given feedback by the end of June.
