The CEP has a small number of vacancies for Summer Internships from June to October open to Economics graduates and postgraduates. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience of research in practice and can lead on to longer Occasional Research Assistantships with the Centre.
The Centre for Economic Performance invites postgraduate students to apply for Occasional Research Assistantships
Occasional Research Assistants are offered facilities and full membership of the centre and an hourly rate of pay (currently around £15 to £17 an hour) to provide on average a day or more's research assistance a week. Working on centre projects usually provides students with material, data etc for their PhD and helps them define a thesis topic more quickly. In some cases we will offer places to associate scholars who will not carry out research assistance but whose own research is well advanced and can contribute to the Centre's programme of work.
