CEMFI invites applications for one or two Research Assistant positions

24 March 2023

CEMFI is inviting applications for one or two two-year Research Assistant positions. The positions are funded by the European Research Council Consolidator Grant POLTRUSTLAB, whose PI is Professor Monica Martinez-Bravo.

The project studies the reasons why confidence in political institutions has declined in many countries over the last decades. While this is not a new phenomenon, the main drivers of political discontent are not well understood. We are collecting the most detailed individual-level dataset on perceptions, beliefs, and attitudes to understand: 1) Why do people lose trust in the political system and 2) What interventions can help individuals regain trust in the political system? We use different methodologies, including experimental, quasi-experimental, and randomized control trials.
