Bates White specializes in providing advanced economic, financial, and econometric analysis to law firms, companies, and government agencies. We help clients tackle tough issues with confidence and pride ourselves on delivering top-notch expert testimony and consulting advice. But what makes us successful is our commitment to providing a positive and rewarding experience—for our employees, our clients, and the community.

Bates White, located in Washington, DC, is seeking PhD candidates and experienced PhDs to work closely with senior staff and partners on high-profile engagements. Responsibilities include economic research, empirical analysis, report and presentation preparation, and project management. The firm is looking for candidates who possess strong written and oral communication skills as well as the ability to think creatively, analyze complex data, develop clear, concise, and logical documents, and collaborate in teams.

We are seeking individuals interested in solving applied microeconomic problems. Expertise in industrial organization, labor, healthcare, econometrics, financial economics, and applied microeconomics/econometrics is helpful, but not required. We are additionally seeking individuals with experience in data science because working with large datasets is a significant and growing part of our business.

Bates White has an innovative and entrepreneurial culture where bright minds from diverse backgrounds come together to solve difficult challenges facing legal, business, and government decision makers in the United States and around the world. In addition, the firm maintains strong relationships with key academics and industry experts.

We are deeply committed to providing a quality work experience and fostering and maintaining a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture. This is evidenced in the firm’s academic focus, career development programs, and employee engagement activities. As part of the quality work experience and our supportive culture, here is what you can expect from us:

*Competitive compensation and benefits including eligibility for annual bonuses, generous paid time
off, a flexible work schedule, low healthcare premiums, a monthly wellness stipend, and much more.

*Immigration support and sponsorship of visas and green cards.

*A transparent culture where your voice is heard, your input is sought, and your contributions are
rewarded.

*Investment in your career through intensive training programs, an assigned mentor and peer coach,
and frequent feedback.

*Networking opportunities through the International Network, employee interest groups, Women’s
Network, and Diversity-Inclusion Council.

*A fun and engaging culture including frequent social events such as practice-area happy hours, team
dinners, and firmwide celebrations.

*Amenities including standing desks, a fitness center, a rooftop terrace, espresso machines, a pool

program.
