October 21, 2021

The Education Research Alliance for New Orleans (ERA-New Orleans) is now hiring a Post-Doctoral Fellow to lead objective and rigorous research projects related to market-based schools reforms in New Orleans and across the country.

Based within the Economics Department at Tulane University, we are one of the most widely cited sources for research on the New Orleans school reforms and school reform nationally. We also work directly with New Orleans education system leaders on data analyses targeted to their needs. Our approach — objective, rigorous, and useful — is having a real impact on the local and national policy conversation. Ultimately, our hope is to improve the quality and equity of education experiences for all students. To accomplish these goals, we are looking for excellent candidates for the following position:

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Economics of Education to begin in fall 2022. The successful candidate will be skilled in applied econometrics and have demonstrated interest in education policy. The Research Fellow will conduct and publish original research about local and national education policy using our extensive and unique data systems. In partnership with Tulane’s Murphy Institute of Political Economy, we invite applications from candidates who will receive a Ph.D. in economics or public policy by fall 2022. In addition to carrying out research on the above topics, the successful candidate will teach one course at the undergraduate economics level annually and is expected to participate actively in research, seminars, and other activities in the Department of Economics and the Murphy Institute. Click here to apply.

Working at ERA-New Orleans offers opportunities to inform and influence education policy here in New Orleans and across the country. We hope you’ll join us.

Applications will be accepted through February 28, 2022.
