Wilmers To Be Visiting Scholar at Russell Sage Foundation

MIT Sloan Associate Professor Nathan Wilmers has been named an incoming Visiting Scholar at the Russell Sage Foundation, a leading foundation supporting social science research. This prestigious ten-month fellowship, which begins in September, is awarded to 15-17 scholars in the social sciences each year.

Wilmers, who is the Sarofim Family Career Development Associate Professor and an Associate Professor of Work and Organization Studies at MIT Sloan, is a member of the core faculty of the MIT Institute for Work and Employment Research (IWER). He has done extensive past research identifying factors that drive labor market inequality and plans to use his time as a Visiting Scholar at the Russell Sage Foundation to write a book analyzing the prospects for the continuation of recent wage gains for low-wage workers.
