Copenhagen Economics continuously hires research assistants for full- or part-time positions at our Copenhagen and Stockholm offices. Working with us, you will be part of a challenging international environment, solving cases for regulatory authorities and private companies in Scandinavia and Europe within many areas of business; among them trade, competition, postal services, transport, and energy. You will have a chance to develop your skills in economics – through formal training, teamwork, and professional discussions with experienced consultants.

Who are you?
First of all, we are looking for ambitious students in economics, who are eager to apply economic theory to real life problems. As reality often constrains the application of models, you should have a problem-solving approach, be motivated by problems and take personal pride in solving them elegantly. We expect you to be a master’s or bachelor’s student in economics. You communicate effortlessly in English, and working knowledge of Danish or Swedish is a big plus.

You are interested in

  • a full-time position (37-40h/week) while on break from your studies
  • an internship (37-40h/week) as a part of your academic programme
  • a part-time position (20h/week), working alongside your studies for at least a year.

How to apply?
Check our vacancies to see if we have any job openings for Research Assistants or interns. If we have no vacant positions, you’re welcome to sign up for our job agent or send us an unsolicited application. Please note that applications which are not sent through our website will not be taken into consideration.
