Researchers in technology policy
The National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP) is looking to hire researchers interested in the technology policy field, on a full-time basis. In the Technology Policy group at NIPFP, we aspire to understand cutting edge issues in the field, develop novel ideas and insights, and contribute to the policy process. While our aspirations extend to a broad array of issues in the overall landscape of technology policy, at present, our work is primarily in telecom policy, privacy, open data, open APIs, open source, RegTech, distributed ledger and crypto-currencies, and competition policy.
