JOBS@ECPR-METHODS: Postdoc, DevLab@Duke

The DevLab@Duke at Duke University has one opening for a Post-Doctoral fellow working to develop rigorous programming, collect monitoring and evaluation data, and conduct impact evaluations of development projects. Prospective candidates are expected to have done graduate work in one or more of these areas:

* International Development
* Economics
* Political Science

Successful candidates will collaborate with Professors Erica Field, Erik Wibbels, Pablo Beramendi, Edmund Malesky, Manoj Mohanan, Marc Jeuland, Robert Garlick and other members of the lab in an interdisciplinary environment. They will be expected to work with lab associates to provide timely input to development practitioners affiliated with the DevLab —including donors, implementers and evaluators—at all stages of project conceptualization, design, implementation and evaluation. Lab activities will leave considerable time for independent research, and the position offers ample opportunity for developing new research projects in conjunction with DevLab members.
