Jan Sauermann

I am associate professor (docent) at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI) at Stockholm University and am affiliated with the Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA) at Maastricht University, the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA), Bonn, and the Center for Corporate Performance (CCP), Copenhagen.

My research interests are centred around learning and incentives in the workplace, origins and consequences of course choice in education, and gender differences in the labour market. From a methodological point of view, I am very interested in field experiments and applications of regression discontinuity designs. You can find a list of my papers here and download my CV here.

I am editing the NEP report on the economics of gender, am involved in organising the Stockholm Uppsala Economics of Education Workshop, and occasionally write up useful commands on my Stata/TeX Blog.
