Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Federal Reserve Board is seeking candidates who demonstrate the potential to contribute creatively to academic research and policy in a collaborative workplace and to engage constructively with differing viewpoints in their work. We invite applications from candidates with a Ph.D. in economics, finance, or a related discipline, or who are nearing completion of their doctoral dissertation.

The Board employs over 400 Ph.D. economists to support its research and policy missions, which affect all sectors and people in the economy. To understand the economy in its entirety, the Board is committed to attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce. As such, we especially encourage submissions from groups traditionally less represented in economics and finance. We recognize the benefit derived from different perspectives. To analyze the vast array of data, conditions, and economic experiences that describe the economy, the Board relies on research economists with a wide variety of backgrounds, interests, and expertise. To learn more about Board economists’ work in microeconomics, macroeconomics, finance, international economics, economic measurement, and other fields, please browse through the economists’ web pages, which can be found here:

Researchers at the Board benefit from extensive and unique data resources, state-of-the-art computing facilities, highly trained and motivated research assistants and analysts, and active speaker series and workshops. Information on resources is available at The Board also hosts a Federal Statistical Research Data Center, which allows researchers with approved projects to access restricted-use microdata from the Census Bureau and other agencies to address important research questions. A generous benefits package that includes parental leave and alternative work schedules to support work-life balance is available to Board employees.

Please apply by November 15, 2021, through the Job Openings for Economists website (application link below) with a curriculum vitae, job market paper, questions regarding citizenship in the JOE application, a diversity statement, and three letters of recommendation.
