Announcement opens on 02/05/2021 closes on 02/19/2021.

The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is the independent federal agency ensuring safety and soundness of the government-sponsored housing-finance entities Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Federal Home Loan Banks.

FHFA seeks Economists/Statisticians in the Economic Modeling Branch of the Division of Research and Statistics. You will develop and maintain statistical/econometric models to support policy making and supervision. Topics include consumer/borrower behavior, credit risk, mortgage and housing market dynamics, and institution behavior. This work will support housing programs, risk-based capital, house-price indexes, financial institutions and markets, secondary mortgage market operations, and emerging risks in housing finance.

Ph.D. candidates must finish their degree and be available to start employment around June 2021.

FHFA employees enjoy all standard federal benefits, plus additional agency-specific benefits and competitive salaries matching other financial regulators(not tied to the traditional General Schedule pay system).
