FAIR is hiring a new Pre-Doctoral Fellow in Labour Economics

We invite applications for a Pre-Doctoral Fellow position at FAIR. The Centre is a unique platform for collaboration between the Centre for Empirical Labor Economics and The Choice Lab at the Department of Economics at NHH.

We will involve the candidate in ongoing projects like understanding early childhood inequality, the consequences of gender differences in education, and the economics of crime. We expect to involve the candidate in literature reviews, data analysis in Stata, data processing, data visualization, and writing.


The Pre-Doctoral Fellow position offers a range of on-the-job learning opportunities and mentoring in an inspiring and interdisciplinary academic environment. The predoctoral fellow will join a dynamic team of international researchers.

The position is a full-time commitment, combines research work with learning activities, and is ideal for a recent graduate interested in doing a PhD in Economics. The position offers the possibility to acquire many skills necessary to conduct independent research in applied economics.

The appointment will be for one year. The annual salary is competitive.


The candidate must possess (at the time of starting) a master’s with excellent grades in Economics or another quantitative field.

We are looking for a person who enjoys independent problem-solving and thrives on taking high-level directional advice and then running with this advice as far as possible. The ideal candidate has a desire to understand the social world around them and possesses a thirst for answering research questions about how the social environment affects individuals.
