[JOB] Part-time Research Assistant for Assistant Professor Ziho Park (Dept of Economics)

You should be a current NTU student. Both undergraduate college students and graduate students can

One RA for finding Chinese policy information: Find out when and how China changed its tax and subsidy policies (e.g., “Zhejiang province announced on YYYYMMDD to increase income tax from A% to B% for those earning more than X renminbi per year starting from YYYYMMDD.”) I will give you a form to fill and more details once you email me.
Another RA for data work: I will give you a dataset (You can tell me whether you prefer Stata format or R format for the data). Call it dataset X. But X is not the raw data. There is an academic paper that explains how they constructed each variable in the dataset X from what raw data. Your job is to replicate the dataset X. That is, you download the raw data, and write Stata or R code that constructs the dataset X.
You don't need to be good at both tasks. I might hire two RAs each doing each task.

Anywhere. You can work remotely.

Work hours will be flexible.

You may start right now.
