Qualification Details

Good knowledge of Stata is essential. Familiarity with other research tools such as Matlab or LateX or computing languages such as R, Python or Julia is a strong advantage. Applicants should have at least a bachelor’s degree in Economics or Finance by the time that the positions start but more advanced studies are a merit.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The two positions are of limited duration – starting on August 22, 2022 and lasting until next summer, at most to July 31, 2023. The posts will be based at the SSE premises in the heart of Stockholm and we offer 25 000 SEK as monthly wage (with additional pension and social security contributions).

The primary task of the RA will be to assist faculty in research related tasks. This can, for example, consist of preparing and cleaning data sets, implementing econometric analysis, working on developing questionnaires, manage ongoing data collection, help making presentations, figures or surveying parts of a literature. One of the RA positions will also include working as a teaching assistant for two BSc- or MSc courses during the academic year.

Research Assistants are offered an office and considered an integral part of the research environment at the department, including mentorship from a designated faculty member at the Department of Economics. The positions offer a pathway to doctoral studies through a direct engagement in research and personal mentorship from faculty. They are also attractive as an intermediate step for other careers.  Past candidates have gone on to reputed PhD programs in Europe and the US, as well as to careers in policy-oriented organizations. We welcome applications from candidates of all nationalities; SSE offers active support for work visas for non-EU nationals.
