The Golub Capital Social Impact Lab has an opening for a 2 year
position as a post-doctoral fellow, working Professor Susan Athey
and other faculty affiliates of the lab. The position involves
working on a set of projects and serving as project manager and
collaborator on research projects, as a coauthor on some projects
and as an assisting researcher on others. It also requires
interfacing with industry partners and supervising research
assistants at various levels of seniority.
The ideal candidate is either preparing for an industry
position, for example in a technology company, or an academic
position in a field closely aligned with the lab, for which
collaboration on the lab's projects would serve as strong
preparation. This position does not incorporate independent
research by the fellow outside the scope of the lab; any
independent research would be conducted outside of regular work
hours and should be managed so as to not present a conflict of
commitment to the lab.
