The RWI – Leibniz Institute for Economic Research is inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Position (m/f/d, 100% for 3 years) in the new Policy Lab “Climate Change, Development and Migration”. The position will be part of a new research project that conducts a rigorous impact evaluation of an agricultural insurance in Vietnam, funded by the German Institute for Development Evaluation (DEval) and in cooperation with the German Development Bank KfW and University Göttingen. The project will focus on a market-ready agricultural insurance product for smallholder farm households. The project aims at generating evidence on whether insurance uptake increases household income and on whether access to information stimulates the demand for insurance. To do so, the project will implement several randomized controlled trials and collect household survey data in Vietnam.
