    Thank you - already applied. Fingers crossed - Have you worked with JPAL (and affiliates) before?

    Glad that people are applying, it's an amazing experience for learning how to carry out development research! If you have any questions about field-based positions, I know there are a number of current/former JPAL/IPA RAs floating around here, myself included, so feel free to ask. I think that the OP is a US-based RA, so probably could address that side of things?

    I've been around a while - I've spent significant time in the US and in the field (multiple countries).

    Who would ever want to leave a cozy environment and suffer mosquito bites in the developing countries? Just kidding!

    I think this is a great opportunity. Sadly, it is too late for me to explore! How is the pay , btw?

    I don't know exact numbers but hear there's a lot of money in poverty.

    I would not be surprised. Having come from a developing country, I sure have seen those working in these sectors earn a lot considering the low cost of living.

    I know this topic is about research jobs, but this seems as good a place as any to ask. I'm looking to apply to a different position at J-LAB,* but the job posting in question has a late February application due date. Of course, the main job page (Jobs | The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab) reads, "Complete the J-PAL common application, including submission of transcripts and letters of recommendation, by January 31, 2011." Can anyone at J-LAB or (or someone familiar with J-LAB's application process) please clear up this conflict of information for me? I'm afraid to even ask J-LAB directly as the FAQ states, "phone calls and email inquires cannot be accepted."

    Thank you!

    *I'm looking at a Type IV position; HOWEVER, the job posting specifically requests that applicants select Type III on the common application.

    There are lots of jobs that go on the Jan 31 hiring cycle, but J-PAL hires throughout the year. I don't know about this specific job (and you should verify this independently) but it's possible it's not due Jan 31.

    When do shortlisted applicants usually hear back from JPAL? - for interviews i mean. And how are the interviews conducted? Any response will be greatly appreciated! :-D
