David M. Rubenstein Fellowship in Economic Studies

Brookings is pleased to announce the second round of the David M. Rubenstein Fellowship Program. The challenges facing the United States and the world require rigorous, innovative, evidence-based research that generate fresh thinking and innovative policy solutions. Through this program, Brookings is seeking to increase diversity in our scholarly community by recruiting the next generation of rising stars and creative thinkers to help achieve our mission of improving governance in the United States and across the world.

For the 2019 class, the institution is again looking for ten outstanding early- to mid-career scholars and policy experts with a diverse array of backgrounds, experience, and scholarship expertise.

In addition to the research priorities of the five programs, Brookings is placing an emphasis on policy researchers with a background in artificial intelligence, emerging technology, and/or data science with public policy. Strong candidates may be as conversant about deep reinforcement learning as they are labor policy, or as familiar with cryptography as they are international security. Alternately, they may use novel data (e.g., satellite imagery, social media posts, IRS records) or methodologies (e.g., machine learning, survey experiments) to gain insight into pressing policy questions. In both cases, strong candidates will draw on deep technical expertise to inform their policy research, and demonstrate a clear ability and willingness to work at the intersection of artificial intelligence, emerging technology, data science, and/or public policy.

Rubenstein Fellows will have the opportunity to enhance the policy impact of their ideas and academic achievements by working with Brookings’s network of scholars and experts, relying on the Institution’s abilities to develop and promote research to the policy community and the wider public.

Rubenstein Fellows will diversify, augment, and complement the core policy research expertise of the more than 100 resident scholars at Brookings.
