Faculty & Staff Opportunities

Research Scientist (Assistant or Associate level)

We are looking for an enterprising scholar interested in the construction and use of administrative data to study inequality and social mobility. This scholar will be involved from the beginning of a new, large-scale effort to compare wealth and its intergenerational persistence across the entire United States. In collaboration with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), this new project will approximate the wealth holdings of U.S. taxpayers, produce estimates of wealth levels, wealth inequality, wealth segregation, and intergenerational wealth mobility, and distribute geographic aggregates of these estimates to the research community, policymakers, and broader public.
