Federal Reserve Bank of New York - Research Associate Position

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is searching for talented seniors for a Research Associate position. We are currently looking to fill one spot in the Macroeconomic and Monetary Studies and Microeconomic Studies function to begin this summer.

Research Associates 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 Associates on a day-to-day basis.

Upon leaving the Fed, Research Associates are consistently accepted by top graduate programs or choose to pursue a wide variety of public and private sector opportunities.

We seek candidates who have records of superior scholarship and academic curiosity. Research Associates usually come from strong economics, mathematics, or computer science backgrounds, though a major in one of these fields is by no means a necessity. Successful candidates often have previous research experience, and many are considering careers in economic research or other related fields.
