The Federal Reserve System, including the Board of Governors and each of the 12 Reserve Banks, is expecting to hire more than 100 research assistants over the coming months. A number of summer internship opportunities also will be available.
Research assistants play an essential role at the Fed and are presented with substantial opportunities for professional and intellectual development. Working side by side with economists, RAs participate in the application of economic theory and empirical research methods used to inform economic policy debate. Along the way, RAs develop strong quantitative analysis, critical thinking and writing skills – marketable skills useful for pursuing career opportunities and advanced studies in a variety of fields.
Most RA programs require a two year commitment. Find out more.
