Open (1) Early-Stage Research in Labor Economics

Open. Apprentices needed for the fall semester. Enter your application on the web beginning August 18th. The deadline to apply is Monday, August 30th at 9 AM.

This URAP project exposes students to early-stage research on topics in labor economics, including the gender wage gap and wage inequality.

The URAP group will meet once a week with the professor (Sydnee), for about an hour. During that meeting, we will discuss progress, and next steps. Each apprentice will have roughly 6-9 hours of individual work outside of the group meeting.

This project is a good fit for students who want to understand how the research process works. More information on previous projects can be found at: www.sydneecaldwell.com/research/.

Tasks assigned will vary, but will include:

- Performing literature reviews, and compiling bibliographies
- Compiling sampling frames for surveys
- Editing and proof-reading academic and non-academic work

Meetings will be in-person, but may be moved to Zoom if campus guidelines change.

Qualifications: The required qualifications are: - Excellent communication and organizational skills - Attention to detail - Interest in economics research

Weekly Hours: 9-11 hrs
