Center for Economic Studies Dissertation Mentorship Program

Researcher

The Center for Economic Studies wants to assist doctoral candidates who are actively engaged in dissertation research in economics, sociology, demography, or a related field using Census Bureau microdata at a Research Data Center.

Program participants receive two principal benefits:

• One or more CES staff economists are assigned as mentors and advise the participant on the use of Census Bureau microdata.

• A visit to CES where they meet with staff economists and present research in progress. Trip expenses (airfare, hotel, and meals) will be paid for by CES.

Eligible candidates must be:

• Actively working on a Ph.D. thesis in economics or a related field using Census Bureau microdata at a Research Data Center.

• A U.S. citizen.

To apply, email the following to Randy Becker (randy.a.becker@census.gov):

• Contact information, name(s) of faculty advisor, and expected completion date, or a CV with that information.

• Title and abstract of RDC-based dissertation research, including a description of the microdata being used.

Deadline:

Acceptance will be on a rolling basis, as funding and staffing resources allow.
