John List and Anya Samek’s team at the University of Chicago / University of Southern California have several internships available this summer for outstanding undergraduate students in economics and related fields (all levels). Internships come with a small stipend. Internship location may be at the University of Chicago in Chicago, IL or the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA. The ideal student should be interested in behavioral economics and experimental methods, and will have a background in economics or a related field, such as psychology or public policy. The student should have excellent organizational skills and communication skills. Students who spend the summer with us will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic research team to carry out field experiments, including interacting with full time research staff and faculty at the center. Students will learn how to conduct field experiments, including subject recruitment, IRB approval, data collection and analysis. Broad areas of study that students may be involved in as part of this internship include health economics, economics of education and charitable giving. Most of your time will be spent “in the field,” for example, going door to door to raise money for charity and recording responses. Hence, ability and experience interacting with people in dynamic environments is a must. If you are interested, please contact David Jimenez-Gomez at email@example.com. Please send a statement of interest and your CV. We have not finalized the location for our summer field experiments, therefore, we are currently recruiting assuming we may place you in either location (Chicago, IL or Los Angeles, CA). In your statement of interest, please indicate whether you have a preference for one city or the other, and whether you are willing to come to either city. Please also indicate whether you will have a car (students with cars will receive additional compensation for gas/mileage for driving to/from study sites).
MSc in Behavioural Econ
DJN9 posted a topic in Graduate AdmissionsHi everyone - I come to you begging for your advise. I am an American college graduate and will be attending one of these schools next year. I've read conflicting information about which would be best, so I was hoping anyone with insight would be kind enough to lend his/her advise. I just ask that you please keep the advise focused on the quality of the school and degree, not cost or other factors, etc. I am unsure as whether I would like to eventually pursue a PhD, or enter back into the private sector, but I would like a program that (if possible) would help me keep both of these options open. I'm specifically interested in Behavioural Economics, especially using applications of the Big Five Personality Theory and Myers-Briggs. Here are the schools I am considering: Nottingham University - MSc in Behavioural Economics (applied) Erasmus University Rotterdam - MSc in Behavioural Economics (accepted) University of Amsterdam - MSc in Behavioural Economics and Game Theory (almost done with application) Maastricht University - MSc in Human Decision Science (applied) Thank you in advance for your advise, it is truly much appreciated.
Hello, I am an older re-entry student (27 years old), and have applied for a transfer to UC Berkeley, UCLA, UCSD, and USC for my undergrad in economics. Based on recommendations for preparing for graduate school, I will be pursuing a joint Econ/Math degree. I am having trouble choosing a school for my undergrad that has behavioral/experimental courses. So far my rankings for the school are as follows: 1.UC Berkeley 2.UCSD 3.UCLA 4.USC Does taking undergrad courses in behavioral/experimental economics help in grad school? Does the school I complete my undergrad at play a significant role in my grad school admission? Any advice will help me greatly in my decision. UCSD seems to have cancelled their Behavioral & experimental courses, UCLA doesn't have any. Berkeley seems to have some courses. Thank you for any comments you may have. (side note: I do know about the importance of research, math, etc.)
