The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston Research Department supports the Bank President and Board of Directors in fulfilling their policy obligations through policy analysis and briefings. Department economists conduct scholarly research to enrich our understanding of the regional, national, and international economic and financial developments and to contribute to the set of analytic tools and perspectives that inform our forecasts, policy analysis, and briefings to policymakers. Their work intersects conceptual and empirical advances, and department economists develop models and analyze micro- and macro-level economic and financial data on the U.S. and other economies. We engage in academic discussions and debate presenting our research at conferences, seminars, and workshops, and System meetings. As part of the Bank’s public outreach effort, we also engage with business groups, local government entities, nonprofits, and school groups.

The Macro Finance section conducts research on financial markets, institutions, and financial issues. The vice president leads a team of economists and research assistants whose areas of focus include financial intermediation, asset pricing, and the intersection between the financial sector and the real economy, as well as overseeing the section’s scholarly research and policy analysis and fosters employee engagement and development. As a member of the department’s leadership team, the vice president assists the director in the development and execution of the department’s strategic priorities and objectives and helps advance the Bank’s mission through financial and monetary policy expertise, collaborative thought leadership, and high-quality academic and policy contributions. All Bank officers are expected to help drive and support the Bank’s mission, strategy, and culture through active engagement in key dialogues, demonstrating intentional and inclusive leadership, and volunteering for Bank activities to serve as a role model for our employees and the communities we serve.

Job duties include:

• Provide strategic direction, leadership, and development of section professionals at various career stages and levels of seniority.
• Contribute to department efforts that support the Bank President, including FOMC preparations.
• Support and advise the Director of Research on economic/financial policy, department strategy, and other department and Bank matters.
