Pathways to Research and Doctoral Careers – PREDOC Program
The Pathways to Research and Doctoral Careers (PREDOC) is a consortium of universities and research institutions that aims to foster a talented, diverse, and inclusive population in the quantitative social sciences, especially Economics. Consortium members offer graduating students a variety of post-baccalaureate, full-time, paid pre-doctoral research positions, where students work directly for faculty and are mentored and prepared for top doctoral programs and eventual careers in the academy, institutes of policy research, and industry. Institutions participating in the PREDOC program are committed to reaching out to, mentoring and recruiting individuals who are underrepresented in their fields with the goal of diversifying the pool of pre-doctoral candidates. Consortium members include Harvard, Princeton, MIT, University of Chicago, Stanford and Columbia among others, as well as the National Bureau of Economic Research and several Federal Reserve banks.
