Nick Frazier, a 5th year graduate student, is the co-recipient of the Heinz König Young Scholar Award from the Mannheim Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). The award honors his work on the effects of uncertainty in the working schedules of employees which stems from an on-going research project with Professor Flávio Cunha. Jan Tilly from the University of Pennsylvania shared the prize for separate work on employment and welfare effects of short-time work in Germany during the recession from 2008 to 2010. Both attended the ZEW Summer Workshop 2016 which focused on structural models for policy evaluation and featured around 20 early career economists. The Heinz König Young Scholar Award of ZEW annually recognizes excellent empirical papers by up-and-coming researchers and provides with an endowment of 5,000 euros and includes the opportunity to spend an extended research visit at ZEW.
