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.
