This position involves helping Dr. Smith with his research projects in American business history. Specifically, we will be working on understanding how the Jones Act affected ocean shipping, shipbuilding, and rail firms between 1900 and 1940.
To do this, we will combine data from the National Archives’ records on the United States Shipping Board and investment data from Moody’s to build a panel of companies over this time period. The goal is to learn how the Jones Act changed the shipping industry more broadly and to apply those findings to today’s policy environment.
This project will require an interest in economics and history. Familiarity with Microsoft Excel, an interest in high-quality academic research, and technical writing skills are required. Familiarity with R and Stata are helpful but not required.
