The research department at the Chicago Fed is looking to hire a number of Research Assistants (RAs) to start in the summer of 2019. We seek to recruit students with diverse backgrounds, interests, and perspectives. As a major employer of PhD economists, the Federal Reserve is taking a leadership role in making sure women and students from underrepresented minority groups have the opportunity to become research assistants and explore career paths in economics.
The 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 graduate programs upon departure from the Fed.
