Nine new Research Assistants (RAs) have joined the various research institutes at the African School of Economics. These research assistants are all former ASE students and Predoctoral Fellows, and will be working on diverse projects. Their work includes assisting senior researchers, producing publishable research articles for scientific journals, contributing to the design and execution of the research projects (which includes conducting field surveys) and editing grant applications.
In addition to their work in research, each research assistant will be devoting time to prepare for their doctoral studies, including publishing articles, studying for the TOEFL and GRE, and supporting different committees across the university. These committees may include ASE Development, Communications and Marketing, External Relations, and others.
Research projects include:
- Institutions and Governance in Benin
- The Impact of Socio professional Inclusion of Women on Child Education: Case of Sub-Saharan Africa
- The Amazons of the Danxome Kingdom
- Financial Inclusion
The research assistants not only gain skills relevant to their own personal and professional long term goals, but also contribute to the diverse voices that work on research projects across ASE , IREPE, and the other research institutes. These bright and dedicated research assistants are excited to make an impact on their personal and external research.
