The Federal Reserve Board is hiring Research Assistants during the Fall recruiting season, October-November, and the Spring recruiting season, February-March for positions that begin in the summer.
Each year, the Board hires approximately 70 recent graduates in economics, math, or related fields as RAs. These positions are highly competitive and very quantitative in nature. While at the Board, RAs work closely with economists and analysts on a broad range of topics covering real-world policy issues and academic-type research. After their time at the Board, many of our RAs move on to top graduate school programs.
To be considered for these positions, candidates must submit application materials by September 30 for the Fall recruiting season and by January 31 for the Spring recruiting season. Complete application instructions are available at http://www.federalreserve.gov/careers/ra.htm.
A limited number of summer internships are also available each year. Application procedures and deadline information for this program can be found at http://www.federalreserve.gov/careers/intern_project.htm.
