PCAOB Fellowship for the Office of Economic and Risk Analysis
The Fellowship Program of the PCAOB’s Office of Economic and Risk Analysis (OERA) focuses on integrating academics into PCAOB projects to provide valuable external perspectives. The program provides a way for the Board to obtain outside perspectives in analyzing data collected by the PCAOB through its oversight activities, as well as a way for academics to work with PCAOB data for key projects and research papers and to understand PCAOB’s role in the classes that they teach
The Board approved revisions to its existing program to further align the work of the Fellows with the Board’s mission and strategic goals. Under the revised fellowship program, Fellows will have the opportunity to work primarily on applied tasks linked to specific OERA projects supporting the PCAOB Strategic Plan. As a secondary focus, they would develop high quality, publishable research papers linked to key areas that would inform PCAOB’s oversight activities and efforts. Fellows are expected to divide their time towards working with PCAOB staff on projects supporting the PCAOB Strategic Plan (65%) and developing research papers linked to key areas (35%).
The PCAOB is currently soliciting interested applicants for the fellowships. Applications are due no later than March 1, 2020.
