The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) anticipates filling at least one Ph.D. level research economist position in the International Economic Accounts Research and Methodology Group.

BEA’s mission is to promote a better understanding of the U.S. economy by providing the most timely, relevant, and accurate economic accounts data. To achieve our mission objectives, we need highly qualified economists and other professionals equipped to develop new and innovative approaches to economic measurement that keep pace with the dynamic economy.

The candidate is expected to conduct collaborative and/or independent research on measurement topics of importance to BEA's mission, work to implement the research in the U.S. international economic accounts, and present the research at conferences and publish in professional journals.
