Research Associate

Organization: National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER)

Apply By: 20 Mar 2019

Location: New Delhi(Delhi)

About the Organization:

National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER)’s roots lie in Prime Minister Nehru’s early vision of a newly-independent India needing independent institutions as sounding boards for the government and the private sector. Established in 1956, NCAER is India’s oldest and largest independent, non-profit, economic policy research institute.It is even longer in the life of an institution. But the promise of NCAER—to ask the right questions, gather good evidence, analyse it well, and share the results widely—has endured. India has achieved much, and much remains undone. As the economy has changed, so too has NCAER, to continue to help understand India’s rapid economic and social transformation.
