Behavioral Insights Global is seeking multiple Behavioral Policy Research Fellows to assist with and pioneer projects in behavioral science and public policy.

The Behavioral Insights Global Fellowship is in its 2nd year – Apply now! The BIG fellowship is an immersive experience for current master’s and exceptional undergraduate students to take part in applied policy projects in behavioral science. As a member of a team, you will design and conduct research in a high-need area from the BIG portfolio in finance, health, and/or energy. Each research fellow will be offered fully funded stipends to travel to a field site, in support of international work in behavioral and experimental economics at the intersection of behavioral public policy.
