Components of NYU Department of Economics RCR Training:
These trainings should be completed by all students preferably during the second year of their doctoral program.
- Completion of (1) session of Human Subjects Trainings offered via the Office of Post Doctoral Affairs (towards bottom of webpage)
- Department of Economics Custom Designed Training - usually held once a year in September on a Saturday in Room 517, 19 West 4th Street, New York
- Completion of (2) out of (4) sessions of the University-wide RCR seminars offered annually by the Office of Post Doctoral Affairs (this is in addition to the specialized Human Subjects Training)
- OPTIONAL RCR training resources: (5) CITI online program modules
Upon completion of all of the RCR components, you will receive a certificate of completion of RCR Training from the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. Please retain the certificate for future reference as you may be asked to produce it for NYU or a future institution with whom you become affiliated. The certificate is valid for (4) years and transferable to other institutions. Should you be here at NYU conducting federal research for a period longer than your certification is valid, you will be required to take more RCR training.
