CATO – Director, Center on Labor and Employment Studies

The Cato Institute seeks a senior scholar to direct and produce research aimed at preserving America’s dynamic labor markets and promoting competition, mobility and opportunity in the workforce. The director will be expected to cover a broad range of issues related to labor and employment—including, but not limited to: unionization (both public and private sector), the National Labor Relations Act and right-to-work laws; public policies affecting productivity and job growth; unemployment insurance, “living” and minimum wage laws; immigration policy; parental leave, employment discrimination law, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The ideal candidate will have advanced training in economics and familiarity with the relevant labor and employment laws. An advanced degree, Ph.D. or J.D., is preferred. A commitment to Cato’s mission of individual liberty, free markets, and limited government is required. Compensation will be commensurate with ability and experience.

Applicants should send their resume, cover letter, and writing samples to:
