Full Text of JOE Listing:
CBO, a nonpartisan agency that provides Congress with the objective, timely analyses needed for economic and budgetary decisions seeks economists who have a broad range of policy interests. Positions require excellent quantitative skills, strong writing ability, and an interest in working on issues of current legislative priorities to the Congress.
The Chief Economist provides managerial support to the leaders to support the objectivity, insightfulness, and overall quality of the agency’s analyses.
The Director of Health, Retirement, and Long-Term Analysis provides intellectual and managerial leadership for about 30 analysts, with a primary focus on health care.
The Unit Chiefs will manage direct analyses of either labor markets, education, and income security programs or of climate change and the environment, energy, transportation, and other infrastructure.
The I/O Economist will analyze health care policies using expertise about auctions and market design—especially through contributions to CBO’s health insurance simulation model.
CBO analysts address challenging substantive issues in economics and public policy while working in a collegial environment that provide opportunities for research on topics relevant to the agency’s endeavors. 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.
