PhD Students: Earn Cash Replicating RCTs

[From the website of The Poverty Action Lab, Department of Economics at MIT] “The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) at MIT’s economics department announces a fellowship program offering financial support (tuition assistance of up to $12,000 and a stipend of $13,000) for one semester (approximately 4.5 months) for current PhD students. While preference will be given to students from economics programs, graduate students from other disciplines with strong quantitative and programming skills (STATA, R etc.) are very welcome to apply. During the fellowship, students will work with some of J-PAL’s 150 affiliated professors from dozens of universities around the world, re-analyzing RCTs from scratch (starting with the creation of the data set from “raw survey” data, up to production of the final econometric analysis included in the working papers).” To learn more, click here.
