This is an opportunity to produce impactful work alongside the Institute for Policy Research (IPR) for regional policy-makers as a Research Assistant. A highly motivated individual is required to conduct quantitative analysis on firm-level data on innovation, skills and productivity published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The interested individual should have excellent quantitative skills (in particular, very good econometric skills and advanced knowledge of regression analysis), experience of working with large datasets (cleaning data, merging datasets) and a highly analytical mindset.

The candidate is expected to start as soon as possible, and the project is expected to end by the 31st July 2023. The individual is required to be based in the UK, ideally in Bath, as the data need to be accessed from certain locations across the UK. The pay will amount to £15.24 per hour and the opportunity would be particularly suitable to doctoral students filling their time between submission, viva and their first research job (although open to anyone).

If you are interested in this opportunity, please get in touch with Chris Dimos (School of Management, University of Bath).
