The Federal Reserve Board is currently hiring Research Assistants during our Spring recruiting season, February-March, for positions that begin in the summer.
Each year, the Board hires approximately 75 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 January 31 for the Spring recruiting season. Complete application instructions are available at http://www.federalreserve.gov/careers/ra_research.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.
