GRAPE is looking for candidates interested in joining the team. We intend to hire two part-time assistants (the work load for each is about 20 hours a week) for two projects:
- MiRaReD led by Joanna Tyrowicz [pension systems and their reforms]
- WEALTH led by Krzysztof Makarski [aging and its effects on inequality]
The profiles of requirements differ between the projects, but we welcome applications from candidates who have interest in applied and quantitative macroeconomics. In particular, we are seeking to fill two part-time positions in macroeconomic modeling of the overlapping generations (experience in programing in Matlab or Fortran is a plus). Working knowledge of English is a must. Prior experience with programing constitute an advantage.
The tasks of the assistant will include coding, data management, data analysis and review of literature as well as drafting components of scientific articles and non-technical posts for GRAPE blog. We can offer a scholarship (“stypendium"). The compensation amounts gross to 1800-2000 PLN for one part-time position per month. The expected contract duration will be between 1.5 up to 3 years (depending on the project), but it may also be extended, subject to successful cooperation and obtaining new projects. Projects are financed by the National Science Center.
We offer a friendly yet stimulating work environment among other young people involved in research projects. Moreover we offer a designated place to work with a well-equipped computer and all the conventional office infrastructure. There are seminars which give an opportunity to learn and share in affirmative yet motivating atmosphere. Last but not least, there is access to a fully-equipped kitchen and free yet wonderful coffee. Each of the project will yield 2 journal articles, which may by co-authored by the assistant, depending on the work input. Inclusion of parts of the research performed by the assistant in his/her PhD/MA thesis is also possible.
The assistant will also be able to use the facilities for work not directly related to the project. The working hours are rather flexible and task-oriented. However, the assistant is required to meet with the project team on a regular basis.
If you are interested, send us curriculum vitae, cover letter and a sample of your recent writing (e.g. essay, assignment). Candidates may apply for multiple positions, but should mark that clearly in their application. Applications should be submitted before October 1st, 2017 to email@example.com. We retain the right not reply to all applications.
