Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Department of Financial Services (DFS) supervises and regulates the activities of nearly 1,800 insurance companies with assets of over $5.5 trillion and more than 1,400 banking and other financial institutions with assets totaling more than $2.9 trillion. DFS has established itself as a national leader in climate-related financial supervision. It was the first U.S. financial regulator to establish expectations for banks and insurers on managing the financial risks from climate change and the first to issue detailed guidance for insurers on managing climate risks and opportunities.

The Climate Division was established in November 2021 to position DFS at the forefront of climate action in the financial sector. It is seeking a Climate Change Economist to join a small but mighty team at a time when key policy decisions are being made. The candidate selected for this role will help guide DFS’ analysis, supervision, and policy development regarding climate change's impact on the financial markets and DFS’s regulated entities.

We are looking for an experienced professional with at least 8 years of experience in finance, banking, or insurance, or financial regulation.
