We are pleased to launch for the sixth year a call for PhD students on the job market to blog their job market paper on the Development Impact blog. We welcome blog posts on anything related to empirical development work, impact evaluation, or measurement. For examples, you can see posts from 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012. We will follow a similar process as previous years, which is as follows:
We will start accepting submissions immediately until midnight EST on Tuesday, November 22, with the goal of publishing a couple before Thanksgiving and then about 6-8 more in December when people are deciding who to interview. We will not accept any submissions after the deadline (no exceptions). As with last year, we will do some refereeing to decide which to include on the basis of interest, how well written they are, and fit with the blog. Your chances of being accepted are likely to be somewhat higher if you submit earlier rather than waiting until the absolute last minute of our deadline.
