Come work for the NIPFP-DEA Research Program:

  • Exposure to economics / finance
  • Exposure to the world of public policy
  • Experience with regulations / law will be a plus point
  • Should have read the Percy Mistry and Raghuram Rajan reports.
  • Good quality written english.
Quantitative analyst
  • A Masters of a Ph.D. in a quantitative field (e.g. economics, statistics, mathematics, engineering).
  • Skills in statistics / econometrics
  • Experience in being part of a similar team doing applied econometrics
  • Computer programming - e.g. R / gauss / matlab / scilab.
Research Programmer
  • Knowledge of programming languages such as C, perl, shell, R.
  • Software engineering environment e.g. make, subversion
  • Role will be partly to build stuff, but partly to learn new things and pass them on to the researchers, and help them in troubleshooting.
