Full-Time Job Opportunities
We are currently recruiting for 3 full-time programs: Business Associate, Investment Science Associate, Launch Research Associate, and Technology Associate. These opportunities are open to current seniors graduating this academic year.
We also have an Open House at our Boston office headquarters on October 4th (flyer attached) if any student is interested in seeing the firm!
Research Analyst Position at the New York Federal Reserve
Each fall we recruit Research Analysts to work closely with the economists in our Research Group starting the following fall. We request your assistance in finding talented seniors to fill these positions.
Research Analysts play an integral role in both the policy and research functions of the Research and Statistics Group. Our economists, whose specialties include banking and payment systems, capital markets, international economics, macroeconomics, and microeconomics, work closely with Research Analysts. Upon leaving the Fed, Research Analysts who choose to apply to graduate school are consistently accepted by top programs; others pursue a wide variety of public and private sector opportunities. In recent years, our RAs have gone on to pursue PhDs in economics or finance at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, University of Chicago, UC Berkeley, and Wharton, among others. Previous RAs have also gone to law and public policy programs at Harvard Kennedy School, Princeton, Yale, and others.
We seek candidates who have records of superior scholarship and academic curiosity. Research Analysts usually come from strong economics, policy, mathematics, or computer science backgrounds, though a major in one of these fields is not a necessity. Successful candidates often have previous research experience, and many are considering careers in economic research, public policy, or other related fields.
In addition, we seek candidates from a wide range of backgrounds that are typically underrepresented in economics. It is important to us that we succeed in recruiting a diverse cohort of Research Analysts each year. Thus we encourage many students with varying experiences and backgrounds to apply.
Applications are being accepted now, on a rolling basis, at www.newyorkfed.org/careers. It is recommended that candidates apply by October 6th.
