Jobs, Internships, Fellowships
CEPR conducts both professional research and public education so that the public is better prepared to choose among the various policy options. The professional research is oriented towards filling important gaps in the understanding of particular economic and social problems, or the impact of specific policies, both domestically and globally. The public education portion of CEPR's mission is to present the findings of professional research, both by CEPR and others, in a manner that allows broad segments of the public to know exactly what is at stake in major policy debates. As part of its public education initiative, CEPR utilizes research findings and analysis to challenge the myths, assumptions, policies and institutions that perpetuate economic and social inequality. CEPR's founding scholars include Dean Baker and Mark Weisbrot, co-directors of CEPR, and Robert Pollin, Professor of Economics, University of Massachusetts.

CEPR welcomes hosting those with outside fellowships under certain conditions. The fellowship must have been awarded by a fair and equitable process, and it must be paid. Fellows must work on an independent project not directed by CEPR; however, they may work on small projects related to their research for CEPR as long as their independent project remains their primary task.
Fellows are invited to apply to be hosted by CEPR by sending a cover letter (including logistical information about the fellowship), resume, and research statement to cepr[at]cepr.net. The research statement must explore the connection between the fellow’s research and CEPR’s mission and CEPR’s past work. No calls or faxes please.
