The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is seeking new or experienced Ph.D. economists and statisticians for its Compliance Risk Analysis Division. The OCC charters, regulates, and supervises national banks and federal savings associations. CRAD economists use statistical analysis and econometric modeling to analyze bank models used primarily in the areas of fair lending, credit cards, and anti-money laundering.
