Opportunities for New and Experienced Research Economists
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York recruits both new Ph.D.s and experienced economists for positions in the Research and Statistics Group. Our economists support the principal missions of the Bank through their research in the fields of macroeconomics, banking, payments, finance, applied microeconomics, international economics, and regional analysis.
We offer our economists opportunities to engage in important policy initiatives at senior levels as well as the broad flexibility to pursue independent research. We have in place a distinguished academic research program that sets a high value on publication in the top professional journals. We also encourage participation in conferences and frequent collaboration with the broader academic and policy communities.
Research Analyst Opportunities for College Graduates
We are also looking for talented college graduates to work with economists on research projects and to provide analytic support for the Bank on monetary policy, banking supervision, payments systems, and other economic and financial issues.
Each year, the Research and Statistics Group of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York seeks qualified candidates for three summer internship positions. Ph.D. students in all fields of economics and finance who are completing their dissertation work are welcome to apply.
The Program, begun in the summer of 2006, is designed to provide students with the opportunity to participate in the intellectual life of the Research Group. Throughout the internship, the student's time will be dedicated to furthering their dissertation research, interacting with research economists, and obtaining feedback on their work. Students will be expected to present research, in an informal setting, at the beginning and end of the internship.
Please note that all Program participants must have authorization to work in the U.S. If they do not have current authorization, they must arrange with their school for the necessary practical training permissions to take part in the Program.
