Research Assistant: Harvard/UCLA Research on Economics of Climate Change

posted Nov 1, 2017, 3:03 AM by Berlin Development
Jisung Park and Patrick Behrer are looking for a graduate or advanced undergraduate RA for a research project exploring the health, labor, and human capital impacts of climate change. The project seeks to better understand the potential mechanisms by which individuals and businesses will adapt to climate change, particularly in response to the health and productivity impacts of heat waves. We are also interested in examining the ways in which climate change may affect economic mobility and income inequality through the above mechanisms.

The ideal candidate will have interests in economics, data science, and/or computer science, and experience working with large administrative datasets. Expected time commitment is negotiable, with a minimum commitment of 5 hours per week. Pay will be competitive. In the case of qualified Masters or PhD students, there may be opportunities for co-authorship of resulting manuscripts depending on qualifications and level of commitment.
