Diaspora tour at UMD Features ECON Major

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences is proud to participate in the Diaspora Tour at the University of Maryland. On Thursday, Oct. 2 from 12-2 p.m. in the Prince George’s Room of the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, distinguished panelists including ECON major and entrepreneur Kikanao Punyua will discuss this timely topic.

“Diaspora” is a community of people who live outside their country of origin or ancestry but maintain active connections with it. With more than 62 million first and second-generation immigrants currently in the United States, these communities are some of America’s greatest resources for development and diplomacy. This event is an opportunity for university students, faculty and staff as well as diaspora leaders and local community organizations to learn more about initiatives on diaspora engagement and about how to get involved with Global Diaspora Week, October 12-18, 2014.

The Diaspora Tour is sponsored by the Department of State, the International Diaspora Engagement Alliance and USAID. This event at the University of Maryland will include remarks by Department of State Special Representative for Global Partnerships Andrew O’Brien, who will moderate a panel discussion.

In addition to Punyua, who also is a UMD men’s track athlete and the founder of Rafiki Beads & Trips, panelists include: Semhar Araia, founder and executive director, Diaspora African Women’s Network; David Ensor, journalist and director, Voice of America; and Merle Collins, professor of English and activist, College of Arts & Humanities.

Rafiki Beads & Trips sells accessories handcrafted with care by women in rural villages of Kenya in the Maasai Tribe, and also organizes “life-changing trips”. The company has significant connections to BSOS and to UMD; ECON major Alex Willett was a founding business associate, and the company has employed other BSOS students.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for the History of the New America, the College of Arts and Humanities and the School of Public Policy.

Positions for ECON students in C4T

Careers4Terps highlighted positions -  University Career Center & The President’s Promise!
Log in to your C4T account (www.Careers.umd.edu/) and paste the position title in the “Search” box to learn more and apply. 

Actuarial/Economic/Data Analyst
Actuarial Research Corporation
Position Type:   Entry Level (Full-Time)
Desired Major(s):  Behavioral and Social Sciences/Economics, Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences/Mathematics
Location:  Annandale, Virginia (United States of America), Columbia, Maryland (United States)


Actuarial Research Corporation is a small, well-established, privately held consulting firm that performs a blend of innovative actuarial and health care economic analysis. The company is involved in the review and analysis of health care policy and reform initiatives, managed care, and long term care. Our principal clients are federal government agencies, but we also serve a variety of private-sector and international organizations. As our name suggests, ARC staff possess considerable expertise in actuarial science, especially as it relates to public programs; however, we also have a large portfolio of business related to health policy analysis more generally, and staff with experience and expertise in these areas. We are seeking entry to mid-level junior analysts to work on projects related to U.S. health care financing and related topics. Work is driven by the needs of our clients; typically, we do not perform original research.

Preference will be given to candidates with work experience, but ARC also has a tradition of hiring new graduates. Most of the work will be conducted from our Columbia Maryland office; most travel is local in nature. Our model is to form small, ad-hoc teams to work on specific projects; team composition and roles can fluctuate with overall company workloads.


Typically, under the supervision of a senior analyst, the analyst will serve as a junior member of project teams working under direct contract or subcontract to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to implement, monitor, review or evaluate Medicare and Medicaid demonstrations, innovations, or other projects. The analyst will also serve as a junior member of teams working for other government or private clients on projects related to United States health care financing. Teams typically are small, ranging from two to five people with a range of skills and experience; teams are assembled ad hoc to address project needs, and membership can fluctuate with overall company workloads.

The junior analyst will be introduced to many facets of actuarial science and health economics, with a strong emphasis on the analysis of health care policy and cost issues. One aspect of the work will involve the manipulation and analysis of large healthcare datasets. Time will be spent programming in the SAS environment and Visual Basic.

The candidate must be authorized to work in the United States. The following knowledge and skills are critical:
* A relevant degree in mathematics, statistics, economics, or related field
* Knowledge of probability, statistics, and data analysis at the bachelor’s level or higher
* Working knowledge of methods to analyze quantitative data
* Skill in use of Microsoft Office, especially Excel, Word, and Powerpoint
* Ability to document methods and findings for both technical and nontechnical audiences
* Strong organizational skills

In addition, we consider the following knowledge and skills to be valuable:

* Familiarity with Medicare and/or Medicaid program eligibility, benefits, and reimbursement
* Familiarity with the United States health care system
* Knowledge of or experience in qualitative methods of analysis
* Programming skills, particularly with SAS or another statistical package such as SPSS or Stata
* Ability to work as part of a project team

Research Assistant in Economics - Joint Committee on Taxation United States Congress

The staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation seeks one or more research assistants in economics to assist staff economists on a project to merge multiple large data sets.  The task is to merge a data set of approximately 680,000 observations to corporate, partnership and S corporation tax return data. An imperfect identifier exists for some matches; thus a certain amount of the matching can be accomplished through statistical software. Another percentage will likely be matched through name matching, and hence, these records can also be matched using statistical software. However, a significant percentage of the data will require physically sorting through the records to manually match.
Patience, creativity, perseverance and conscientiousness are qualities we are seeking. Facility with statistical software such as Stata is highly desirable. Ability to work in Excel is required. Confidentiality is a necessity due to the nature of the data involved, disclosure of which is subject to criminal penalties.

The staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that this project will take at least 150 to 200 hours to complete. Due to the sensitive data involved, all must work must be undertaken in the staff offices in the Ford House Office Building on Capitol Hill. Work schedule is flexible between 9:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Qualified individuals will be remunerated at a rate of $25.00 per hour.

To be considered, email a cover letter and resume (including references) to Bernard Schmitt, Deputy Chief of Staff at Bernard.Schmitt@jct.gov.

The Joint Committee on Taxation is a nonpartisan committee of the United States Congress, originally established under the Revenue Act of 1926. The Joint Committee operates with an experienced professional staff of Ph.D economists, attorneys, and accountants, who assist Members of the majority and minority parties in both houses of Congress on tax legislation.  The Joint Committee on Taxation is an equal opportunity employer.  All applicants will be considered without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including marital or parental status), disability, or age.
