At IFS, we recruit top-quality economists. We specialise in the economic analysis of public policy, bridging the gap between purely academic research and issues of practical policy design or evaluation. You will carry out in-depth economic research and communicate your findings to politicians, journalists, academics and others such as campaigning groups and professional organisations.

You will work closely with colleagues in a small team as well as with other teams across the Institute; your colleagues will include policy experts and leading academics from the UK and overseas. We will support you in developing your skills, through further study, ad hoc training and by giving you opportunities to get involved with all aspects of research and communication right from the start.
