Research Analyst position at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York

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 are consistently accepted by top graduate programs or they choose to pursue a wide variety of public and private sector opportunities.

In recent years, our RAs have gone on to pursue a Ph.D. in Economics or Finance at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, University of Chicago, UC Berkeley, and Wharton. 

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, 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 or other related fields. Ideal candidates will also have expertise with statistical programming software, such as Stata, SAS, or MATLAB. 

Here is a brochure with more details about the Research Analyst role, and a flyer advertising the position.  

Applications are being accepted now until October 15 at http://www.newyorkfed.org/careers/current_undergrad_openings.html.

The Research Analyst position is an unparalleled opportunity to work with a world-class research and policy team. 

We would greatly appreciate your encouraging bright and interested students to apply.  

 

Sincerely, 
--Matthew Cocci 
Research Analyst, Macroeconomic and Monetary Studies
