The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is a small nonpartisan agency that provides economic and budgetary analysis to the Congress. The Health, Retirement, and Long- Term Analysis Division is seeking an Assistant Analyst to provide the division’s senior analysts with statistical analyses, graphics, literature reviews, and other research assistance. The selected candidate will also conduct independent research on a variety of topics.

Candidates must have strong quantitative, writing, and computer skills (with programs such as STATA and/or SAS, Excel, Powerpoint, and Word) and a desire to work on issues of current legislative interest to the Congress. A bachelor’s degree with a major or minor in economics or a related discipline is also required.
