Statistician, National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR), London

The National Institute of Economic and Social Research is Britain’s oldest, and one of its most prestigious independent research institutes. It’s also a great place to start or develop your early career. Our reputation for quality, outstanding networks and unrivalled location at the heart of Westminster makes us the ideal place to get you noticed. Many staff stay to build their careers here, and those that move on do so for rewarding and high-profile opportunities – in prestigious international institutions, blue chip companies and leading national organisations like the Bank of England as well as academic opportunities at leading universities.

We are looking to appoint a graduate/post-graduate economist, social scientist or statistician with strong quantitative skills to work in our Education & Labour Directorate and to support further research projects across the Institute. The Directorate, led by Dr Stefan Speckesser, is concerned with the economic impact of education and labour market policy, applying research designs like Random Control Trials, econometric impact assessments or structural modelling to large scale data, especially data from Government registers.

The post would suit someone with excellent academic qualifications in economics or a quantitative social science, who completed or intends to study for a postgraduate degree in Economics. The successful candidate will have strong numerical skills and a good understanding of applied econometrics, including practical application skills, confidence in handling a range of quantitative data and experience with Stata or R. Good self-organisational skills, the capability to write well and the ability to convey complex analysis to an interested non-specialist audience are essential.
