The Pre-doctoral Research in Economics (PRE) workshop, held June 12-13, 2021, aims to make information about pre-doctoral positions more transparent and widely available, lowering the barriers that keep many promising young scholars from pursuing research careers. It will be hosted by current pre-docs Coly Elhai, Dominic Russel, and Jun Wong and is sponsored by the PREDOC Collaborative and the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences.
