Postdoctoral Fellowship 2017-2018

The MIT Golub Center for Finance and Policy (GCFP) is now accepting applications for a one-year post-doctoral fellowship. This fellowship will bring an exceptional early-career scholar to GCFP for a year of rigorous research related to one or more of the Center’s three main tracks:

  • Evaluation and Management of Government Financial Institutions
  • Regulation of Financial Markets and Institutions
  • Measurement and Management of Risk

The mission of GCFP is to serve as a catalyst for innovative, cross-disciplinary and non-partisan research and educational initiatives that address the unique challenges facing governments in their role as financial institutions and as regulators of the financial system.

This fellowship will provide the opportunity to engage in projects and initiate new research related to the Center’s mission. Ongoing projects at the Center focus on government-run financial institutions, retirement finance, government credit and guarantee programs, systemic risk, financial regulatory policy and other matters related to finance and policy around the globe.

The recipient of this post-doctoral fellowship will be awarded a competitive stipend for academic year 2017-2018, a reimbursement for health insurance, and an office at the Center. The fellow will be expected to spend the year in residence at GCFP to advance both collaborative research and professional development.

Applicants should be recent graduates or doctoral candidates who expect to complete their PhD by June 2017. Non-U.S. applicants must have a valid visa. The Center strongly encourages applications from women, underrepresented minorities, and candidates with disabilities.

Applicants should submit their CV and a brief (max. 3 pages) proposal of how their interests and qualifications would contribute to the mission and work of the Center. Letters of recommendation are not required but are highly recommended. Complete applications should be sent to by 11:59pm EST on April 3, 2017.
