Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond

The Research Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond is looking for highly motivated recent graduates to assist economists with policy-oriented and academic research starting in the summer of 2018.

We are looking for students with diverse backgrounds, interests, and perspectives. We mentor our Research Associates (RAs), and provide them with many opportunities to learn, in their daily work interactions with economists and other RAs, as well as attending seminars and lectures, and giving presentations in RA-led study groups. We provide a friendly and academically-oriented environment where RAs can learn, grow and develop their own skills, while contributing to our policy and research projects during the two years they spend at the Department.
The RA pool supports multiple economists with their academic research on wide-ranging topics (including general equilibrium macroeconomic models, time-series econometrics, labor economics, financial economics, contract theory, public and health economics, industrial organization, or regional economics). Responsibilities include writing computer code to solve dynamic economic models and to analyze time-series and panel data. RAs also use these tools to assist in the preparation of policy briefings. The position is an excellent opportunity for students interested in pursuing graduate studies in economics.
