We are looking for recent graduates to join the Economic Research Department as Research Associates this June or July at the San Francisco Federal Reserve. The positions are full-time, salaried, and offer full benefits.
Research Associates work closely with economists at the top of their fields on a variety of research questions and real-world policy issues while developing a toolkit beneficial for graduate study and future career paths. Research Associates typically stay with the Department for two years, with many going on to competitive graduate programs. The Bank’s tuition reimbursement program and flexible work schedule also serve to encourage continued learning.
We seek exceptional individuals with superior academic records and strong written and oral communication skills. Competitive candidates should have intermediate coursework in economics and a strong foundation in mathematics and statistics, demonstrated through courses such as calculus, linear algebra, and regression analysis. We also look for prior research experience, demonstrated interest in economics, programming experience, and familiarity with statistical programming packages such as STATA, MATLAB, and SAS. Applicants must be US Citizens.
The Economic Research Department is committed to attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce. As such, we especially encourage submissions from less represented groups including women and minorities. The Bank recognizes the benefit derived from different perspectives and looks to foster this when reviewing applications.
