This Bartlett Fellow will conduct research on electricity and development economics. The Fellow will work with large-scale administrative and survey data to estimate the causal impacts of a variety of interventions on households and firms. Sample projects that the Fellow may work on include the effects of cash transfers to migrant workers in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic; the relationship between power outages and economic development; and the role of information in electricity consumption.

Successful fellows will be highly skilled in Stata, and will have taken PPHA 34600 (Program Evaluation) before the start of the fellowship in the summer. Proficiency with Github is strongly preferred.

This internship is available to Harris School of Public Policy graduate students. Application closes April 19, 2021.
