Research Analyst - Federal Reserve Bank of New York

Each fall the Research Analyst recruiting team at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York recruits Research Analysts to work closely with the economists in our Research group starting the following fall.

Research Analysts play an integral role in both the policy and research functions of the Research and Statistics Group. Our economists, whose specialties include banking and payment systems, capital markets, international economics, macroeconomics, and microeconomics, work closely with Research Analysts. Upon leaving the Fed, Research Analysts choose to pursue either graduate school, and are consistently accepted by top programs, or a wide variety of public and private sector opportunities. In recent years, our RAs have gone on to pursue PhDs in Economics or Finance at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, University of Chicago, UC Berkeley, and Wharton, among others. Aside from economics, previous RAs have also gone to law and public policy programs at Harvard Kennedy School, Princeton, Yale, and others.

We seek candidates who have records of superior scholarship and academic curiosity. Research Analysts usually come from strong economics, policy, mathematics, or computer science backgrounds, though a major in one of these fields is not a necessity. Successful candidates often have previous research experience, and many are considering careers in economic research, public policy, or other related fields.

In addition, we seek candidates from a wide range of backgrounds that are typically underrepresented in economics. It is important to us that we succeed in recruiting a diverse cohort of research analysts each year. Thus we encourage many students with varying experiences and backgrounds to apply. Applications are being accepted now until October 15 at http://www.newyorkfed.org/careers/current_opportunities.html.
