Ideal candidates should work in labor economics or a closely related field, and be close to completion of their Ph.D. Excellent knowledge of econometrics and a strong interest in applied and policy-oriented labor issues are a plus. Research associates will engage in self-directed research that has the potential to be published in top journals, and get involved in our network activities and in shared projects of the institute. Team spirit and active participation in the thriving intellectual environment of IZA are essential.

IZA will do online interviews in December 2020 due to the continued uncertainties related to the potential spread of COVID-19.
