The graduate program at e61 has been an exciting and invaluable experience. I have found it so rewarding to be able to apply and develop my applied economic research skills in a way that is impactful, and that helps facilitate informed policy debate around important economic issues faced by Australia. Given the Institute’s strong focus on the quality of research and output, as well as the encouragement and facilitation of professional growth and development, it has been a great way to kick-start my career as an economist.
The pre-doc program at e61 is an excellent opportunity for those seeking a steppingstone for a doctoral degree. The program offers comprehensive training and development opportunities, research experience, and academic mentorship. Highly recommended for those seeking to enhance their research skills!
This internship has been an incredible experience and something that I am very grateful for. The team has been amazing and the opportunity to chat one on one with everyone has been great. I especially loved my topic and the opportunity to produce a written note as well as present my findings. This internship has given me great firsthand experience into what working in applied research would be like.
My Academic Fellowship with e61 has been a great experience. The environment at e61 is vibrant, inspiring and contagiously dedicated to high-quality applied research. I’ve appreciated this opportunity to think about topical policy questions through the lens of my own research, while at the same time learning a lot about the Australian economy. I’d recommend the Academic Fellowship Engagement program to everyone interested in policy-oriented research using granular economic data.
