Full Text of JOE Listing:

CBO, a nonpartisan agency that provides Congress with the objective analyses needed for economic and budgetary decisions, seeks economists:

Assistant Director for Tax Analysis to lead a division which is responsible for forecasting federal revenues for CBO's official 10-year budget "baseline" and for analyses related to federal tax policy. Applicants must have an advanced degree in economics or a related discipline-preferably a Ph.D.-and at least eight years of
significant relevant experience.

Unit Chief of Fiscal Policy Studies to supervise a staff of about eight macroeconomists and help with the management of the division as a whole. Key responsibilities include identifying issues in fiscal policy that may require attention and research, leading and directing analysts as they do research and write about it, and overseeing the development of economic models used for policy analysis.

Macroeconomist to analyze a broad range of issues, contribute to CBO's recurring reports, and conduct original research. The macroeconomic division analyzes emerging developments in the economy, prepares semiannual forecasts of the U.S. economy, and assesses the macroeconomic effects of federal fiscal policy.

Senior Adviser for Health to contribute to a broad range of responsibilities, which include preparing CBO reports and testimonies, designing and producing state-of-the-art analytical studies, and constructing and improving analytic models.

CBO analysts address challenging issues in economics and public policy in a collegial environment that provides opportunities for research on numerous topics relevant to the agency's endeavors. Economists construct and improve cutting-edge models that underlie CBO's policy analyses and prepare CBO studies, memoranda, and testimonies. They are encouraged to pursue independent research projects related to
CBO's broad mission and present this work at conferences and publish it in peer-reviewed journals.
