The research fellow will be required to complete a substantial research project in the field of financial securities regulation. This project will be a policy or academic research paper examining an area of active interest in the field of securities regulation, forming a cogent analysis and possibly making policy recommendations. The research fellow will be expected to present their findings to decision-makers within and outside the institution. While this is the primary task, the research fellow may also be needed to assist other researchers within the economics department in their work. Fellows may be asked, for instance, to make short analysis of a particular regulatory issue for use in a larger research project and to read and comment upon internal drafts of research projects within the department.
