The Partnership for a New American Economy, a bipartisan coalition of 500 mayors and business leaders that advocates for immigration reform, is looking for a senior economist to join our research team in New York. The ideal candidate for this role will have at least a PhD in economics or a related field, as well as some experience, in either an internship or professional capacity, applying sophisticated and robust economic modeling to help guide development of domestic policies and programs on a state, local, or national level.
About the position:
The senior economist is a critical part PNAE’s five-person research team. The ideal candidate is an applied micro-economist with strengths in the areas of labor and education.

In addition to original research, the senior economist will interact and work closely with the network of academics that provide research and analysis for PNAE. The ideal person will be comfortable in our fast-paced research environment, and be capable of not only carrying out complex research tasks, but also helping us think about what questions we should be asking of the available data. This role requires excellent research and analytical skills as well as the ability to translate academic research into practical applications and policies.
The Partnership for a New American Economy was founded in 2010 by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch to advocate for immigration reform and to research the impact immigrants have on U.S. economic growth. Since then, our research quantifying the economic impact of immigrants and our country’s failed immigration system has been at the forefront of public policy debates, with key findings of our reports appearing regularly in venues such as The New Yorker, The New York Times, and The Washington Times, as well as and the Republican Presidential debates of 2012.
