Professors Ana Maria Montoya (Universidad de Chile), Raimundo Undurraga (Universidad de Chile), Paul Gertler (UC Berkeley), Eric Parrado, (IADB) and Sean Higgins (Northwestern University) are looking to hire a full-time Research Assistant to work remotely on a project to track the economic and financial impacts of COVID-19 in Latin America using high-frequency banking data.

This project is a collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (JPAL). This project will likely lead to both academic research and papers as well as policy impact, as the results will be made publicly available and frequently updated in a dashboard on the IDB website and will be used in high-level dialogue with policymakers.
