Post-doctoral fellows receive a competitive academic year salary, an office in the Economics department, a small research fund and moving costs. The obligations of the selected Post-Doctoral Fellow are to be in residence at Dartmouth for the academic year, to take part in the normal research-related activities of the Department (seminars/lunches etc.), and to interact with the trade and broader economics faculty in the Department and at the Tuck School.
