We are looking to appoint two graduate/post graduate economists with strong quantitative skills to work in our Trade, Productivity and Investment directorate and to support further research projects across the Institute. This directorate focusses on a number of themes, such as: the impact of Brexit on the economy, issues affecting trade in services and financial services, housing, taxation and debt, as well as productivity analysis. In particular, we are looking for economists to work with the Economic Statistics Centre of Excellence (ESCoE). ESCoE is an independent research centre funded by the Office for National Statistics, hosted at NIESR, whose work addresses the challenges of measuring the modern economy, as recommended by Professor Sir Charles Bean in his Independent Review of UK Economic Statistics. Upcoming research projects will investigate measurement issues in the digital economy, measurement issues around internationalisation and links between international trade and productivity using new firm level micro data.
