Join Our Team

Thank you for your interest in Opportunity Insights.

Having a diverse and inclusive team is critical both for the quality of our work and for our commitment to advancing equity of opportunities, so we strongly encourage applications from those historically under-represented in economics (women, LGBTQ, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, first-generation, and low-income students, among others).


Research Team and Fellowship Programs

Our research team includes faculty members at Harvard University and other academic institutions as well as pre-doctoral fellows.

Our two-year pre-doctoral fellowship program is intended for students who have just completed a bachelor’s or Master’s degree and are planning to pursue graduate school. Working alongside faculty members, fellows develop skills that prepare them for graduate school such as analyzing data, developing statistical models, creating presentations, and writing research papers. Our team-oriented lab environment is a bridge between college and graduate school for students interested in empirical economics, and most previous fellows have gone on to top Ph.D. programs. (Visit the ‘Alumni” section of our ‘Team page to read more.)

You can find the slides from our informational session held on October 1, 2020 here.

For more general information on applying to pre-doctoral and RA positions in Economics, is a good resource. Their website includes information on preparing for data tasks
