Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Economic Research Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has an opening for an entry-level or a senior economist with expertise in insurance.
This position is with the Chicago Fed’s Insurance Initiative. The Insurance Initiative aims to better understand the role of the insurance industry in the overall economy, with an emphasis on the industry’s role in the financial sector.
The position requires economists who are interested in applied, policy-oriented work and research. Primary responsibilities include analyzing policy issues related to financial stability and the regulation of financial institutions and financial markets, with a focus on insurance. While the duties of this position will allow some time for self-directed, policy-relevant research, applicants should be aware that policy analysis will have the highest priority.
The preferred candidate will have a Ph.D. in economics, finance, or a related field and have strong quantitative skills. Candidates with equivalent experience and skills may be considered. Candidates should have a demonstrated research capability; and strong written and oral communication skills. Senior-level candidates should have an established research record as demonstrated by publications in peer-reviewed journals and/or a significant amount of relevant industry experience. Salary and position will be commensurate with experience and level of achievement.
