The Federal Reserve Board is now hiring Research Assistants during the Spring recruiting season, February-March for positions that begin in the summer. To be considered as part of the Spring recruiting season, candidates must submit application materials by January 31. Complete application instructions are available at http://www.federalreserve.gov/careers/ra.htm.
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.
