Job Opportunities for Research Assistants at the Federal Reserve Board

        The Federal Reserve Board is hiring Research Assistants during the Fall recruitment season, October – November, and the Spring recruitment season, February – March.  We appreciate your referral of interested and qualified students.

Each year, the Federal Reserve Board hires about 40 recent undergraduates 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 Fall recruitment and by January 31 for Spring recruitment.  Complete application instructions are available at

A limited number of summer internships are also available each year.  Application procedures and deadline information for this program can be found at
