The National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP) is looking to hire two legal researchers on a full-time basis. The position is based in New Delhi. Our work is inter-disciplinary, bringing together knowledge of public economics, public administration, law, and quantitative research.

Job description

NIPFP is currently engaged in projects on financial markets and regulation. You would be expected to provide legal research inputs for these projects. This includes understanding the current legal landscape in India on a specific question/field, researching on experience in other jurisdictions, and outlining the possibilities for policy change in the Indian context. You would also work on other research projects and outputs as instructed.

Some examples of our work include:

  2. Sudipto Banerjee, Renuka Sane and Srishti Sharma, The five paths of disinvestment in India, The Leap Blog, 7 July, 2020.

  1. You must have a bachelor’s degree in law (LLB). Masters’ degree (LLM) would be an added advantage
  2. 3 – 5 years of prior work experience
  3. Very strong written and spoken English.
  4. We use various open-source programs like LaTex in our daily work. While prior knowledge of these programs is not necessary, you must be willing to learn these once you join.
  5. You must be comfortable in working in an inter disciplinary research environment with people from varying backgrounds such as economics, law, public policy and data science. You must be curious and passionate about research and must be willing to work on independent outputs as well as in teams.


The remuneration will be commensurate with the candidate’s experience and will be comparable with what is found in other research institutions.
