Summer Research Analyst position at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York

This position is a great opportunity for any junior who has a 3.7 or above, and is seriously considering grad school:

The Undergraduate Summer Analyst program provides outstanding undergraduate students with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in public service at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Through advanced project work assignments and professional development activities, summer analysts gain an extensive understanding of the Fed’s work.  Analysts also have the opportunity to enhance their business skills through critical financial analysis, formal presentations, research and writing.

Analysts are assigned to a particular area or function for the summer, but they will also have opportunities for collaboration with other analysts and with employees from around the Bank. In addition to their daily responsibilities, analysts attend weekly presentations hosted by senior management. These presentations provide an extensive overview of the Bank’s responsibilities and operations, and offer a unique opportunity to learn about full-time career opportunities upon graduation. The summer program is the largest recruitment source for the New York Fed’s full time campus hiring.

We seek candidates who have records of superior scholarship and academic curiosity.  Summer 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.

Applications are being accepted now, on a rolling basis, at www.newyorkfed.org/careers (with requisition number 233969).
