The Research Assistant will support Professor Marsha Olive’s work on
several projects that pertain to contemporary Russian domestic and foreign
economic policy. The first is a strategy
for the World Bank that includes analysis of the role of Russia and the
Eurasian Economic Union in Central Asia. This is expected to wrap up in March. The remainder of the period will be devoted to
a book project and a conference paper on the political economy of urban land
privatization in Russia, with Eastern Europe and Turkey as comparators. Use of STATA and reading knowledge of
Russian, a regional language (e.g. Polish) or Turkish is highly desirable.
Interested candidates should submit a brief cover letter addressed to Professor Marsha Olive along with their resume (please submit as a single PDF file).
