Established in 1946, the American Institutes for Research (AIR) is one of the world's largest behavioral and social science research and evaluation organizations. Our mission is to generate and use rigorous evidence that contributes to a better, more equitable world. AIR works with federal, state, and local government agencies, philanthropies and other organizations to conduct research and evaluation and provide technical assistance in the areas of education, health and workforce development, in the U.S. and abroad.
AIR is currently seeking an Economic Researcher to join our growing Workforce Development program area. Ideal candidates should possess (or are expecting) their PhD with a concentration in labor economics or a related field. Candidates will have the opportunities to work in the areas of employment and public policy, job training and unemployment support, wage determination and equity, and other issues related to human capital formation in the context of labor supply and demand. Candidates hired for the new position might initially start working remotely but will ultimately have the option to work from one of our offices.
All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, gender, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, national origin, protected veteran status, or disability.
AIR adheres to strict child safeguarding principles. All selected candidates will be expected to adhere to these standards and principles and will therefore undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
