The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago’s Economic Research Summer Intern application is NOW OPEN for the Summer of 2023.
This program provides students with the opportunity to gain valuable research experience, network with peers in the field, and to work side-by-side with our economists and research assistants to support research and policy work. Interns work full time for 12 consecutive weeks and are typically asked to do the following:
1. Support economists in their basic and applied research – including collecting data, conducting moderately complex statistical analysis, writing code for model estimations and organizing the presentation of results;
2. Assist economists with their research and analysis of public policy issues and events;
3. Prepare a variety of charts, tables, and descriptive text for staff economists and department management.
These internships are ideal for students looking to build their research portfolios, who have a potential interest in graduate school, or who are considering applying for the Chicago Fed’s Research Assistant program after graduation. Summer 2023 Economic Research interns are given priority consideration for 2024 RA openings providing positive recommendations regarding performance throughout their internship experience.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago is committed to attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce. We recognize the benefit derived from different perspectives and experiences, and we look carefully at candidates’ records to identify individuals whose perspectives could benefit our work. As such, we especially encourage submissions from groups traditionally less represented in economics and related fields.
