Pre-Doctoral Fellows Program

Tobin Pre-Docs 2023 Group

The Tobin Center / Economics Pre-Doctoral Fellows Program at Yale University supports policy-relevant economics research by providing a high-quality education and training experience for individuals with bachelor’s or master’s degrees who are considering pursuing a Ph.D. in economics or a closely related discipline.

The Tobin Center / Economics Pre-Doctoral Fellows Program is a vibrant and diverse community of approximately 60 scholars from around the world. Pre-Doctoral Fellows work for one to two years as full-time research assistants for one or more faculty mentors and engage in additional education and training activities, including taking for credit or auditing one course per semester, participating in a weekly professional development seminar, and attending department research seminars. All positions are based on-campus, and most fellows work in common workspaces to foster camaraderie and peer learning.
