[JOB] Part-time Research assistant for Assistant Professor Ziho Park (Dept of Economics)
* Simple replication of tables and figures in existing empirical economic research papers. In those papers,
guidelines for replications are written in detail. You can follow that guideline.
Besides getting money, you will get these things:
1. You will learn important empirical techniques and codes that are applicable to any field of economics.
2. You will learn important papers in international trade.
3. You will obtain the RA experience, which will make it easier for you to get another RA job in the future.
4. You will experience how actual research papers are written. That's a very different valuable experience that
you can't easily learn in the classroom.
5. I will help you to understand economic research better.
1. English speaking ability doesn't need to be great. If you can read academic economics English while
occasionally googling words you don't know, that's enough.
2. Stata or R ability: If you are not good at it, you can do an easy part of this project. If you are good at it, you
will do a more difficult part. So whether you are familiar with these statistical packages, there can be some
tasks that you can do. It's also OK to just learn it on-the-job.
Anywhere. You can work remotely.
Work hours will be flexible.
Two options are available. You may start right now. Or, you may start next year sometime before March. In
your application, write which option you prefer.
