The Chicago Fed is hiring!

We’d like to inform you about an exciting job opportunity for current seniors. The research department at the Chicago Fed is looking to hire a number of research assistants to start in the summer of 2022. This position is structured as a rigorous two-year research assistantship meant to provide empirical and theoretical skills in preparation for graduate school. Most of our RAs enroll in a graduate program upon departure from the Fed.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago is committed to attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce. We recognize the benefit derived from different perspectives and experiences, and we look carefully at candidates’ records to identify individuals whose perspectives could benefit our work. As such, we especially encourage submissions from groups traditionally less represented in economics.

Attached to this email you find the description for the RA position. The url listed below directs to our RA website that explains the key features of the position. It also provides a direct link to where students can apply for the job.

Thanks for spreading the word.
