And now for some Friday links ...
- Nice roundup on the wage penalty for mothers vs fathers across 6 OECD economies in the Economist (hint: it’s really large, and correlates well with population-wide attitudes towards mothers who work; RT @piza_caio).
- #LookLikeAnEconomist: some great news on that front, the next PhD cohort at UC Berkeley is 50% female! (RT @MarthaOlney). Some links to Women in Econ conferences
- Ripe for a RCT? A school in Baltimore reports incredible results after replacing detention with meditation (RT @Noahpinion)
- Some resources to work in R
- New to GitHub? Don’t give up on using GitHub over a merge conflict (as most new git users do)! This GitKraken video explains what they are and how they can be solved through a desktop client (RT @AndradeLuizaC).
Some recently posted pre/post-docs
- IFAD's Research and Impact Assessment Division (RIA) is looking for three 2-year post-docs as of July 1, 2019, based in Rome — application here.
