Economics professors Dan Benjamin (UCLA), David Cesarini (NYU), David Laibson (Harvard University), and their co-authors will employ a fulltime research analyst with a start date during the summer of 2021. We would like to hire students interested in genoeconomics: the identification of genetic variation that is associated with variation in economic behavior. Prior experience is not necessary. Research Analysts should have an interest in applying to a quantitative Ph.D. program (e.g., Quantitative Genetics, Economics, Neuroscience, Sociology, Statistics, Data Science) and pursuing an academic research career.
Current projects include identifying genetic variants associated with educational attainment and risk preferences, creating optimal genetic predictors for a range of behavioral traits, and developing new statistical methods. For examples of past research, see the "Genoeconomics" tab at https://www.danieljbenjamin.com/publications. Research analysts are directly involved in the entire research process, including:
- Developing new methods to analyze genetic data
- Data analysis in R and Python
- Background research and literature reviews for paper writing
- Drafting sections of manuscripts for publication
- Visualizing data for manuscripts and presentations
