The New York Fed’s Research and Statistics Group would like to make talented seniors (graduating in Winter 2022 or Spring 2023) aware of our Research Analyst positions, and talented juniors (graduating Winter 2023 or Spring 2024) aware of our Summer Analyst positions.
Analysts play an integral role in the research and policy work of New York Fed economists on topics including macroeconomics, microeconomics, banking and payment systems, capital markets, and international economics. Analysts provide support with data analysis and visualization, econometric or statistical models, and public policy reports. The New York Fed has a highly respected program for full-time Research Analysts who join us for two years after graduating college and then successfully pursue graduate school, private-sector or public-sector positions. Our RAs have consistently been accepted by the very best U.S. graduate programs in economics and finance as well as in law and public policy.
Our Junior Analyst internship program is an excellent opportunity to experience the work of an analyst. Junior summer analysts will support economists with ongoing projects, assisting in similar ways as full-time Analysts. Many participants of the internship program have returned as full-time RAs upon graduation.
We seek candidates who have records of strong scholarship and academic curiosity. Analysts usually have a background in economics, policy, mathematics, or computer science, though a major in one of these fields is not a necessity. Successful candidates often have an interest in academic research, and many are considering careers in economic research, public policy, public service, or related fields.
We explicitly seek candidates from a wide range of backgrounds, particularly those that are typically underrepresented in the economics profession. Our programs are at the beginning of the “pipeline” to an economics career so it is important to us that we recruit a diverse cohort of Analysts each year.
Applications for Research Analyst positions (starting in Summer 2023) are being accepted now, on a rolling basis, at https://www.newyorkfed.org/research/careers/research_analysts/index.html. Candidates should apply by October 15th and are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Applications for Junior Analyst internships are also being accepted (graduating in Winter 2023 or Spring 2024). These positions are posted at https://www.newyorkfed.org/careers/student-programs-and-internships. Candidates should apply by November 1st.
