The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston is seeking an entry-level or a senior-level economist. There is a preference for candidates interested in one or more of the following areas: financial institutions, financial markets and products, risk management, and banking. Individuals are expected to have demonstrated empirical interests, together with a solid background in statistics, econometrics, and/or computational methods. However, all qualified applicants will be considered. Applications will be accepted until the position has been filled.
The open position is in the Risk and Policy Analysis Unit (formerly known as the Quantitative Analysis Unit) of the Bank Supervision Department. Primary responsibilities include producing policy-oriented research for publication in refereed journals, advising senior management on policy issues related to the regulation of financial institutions and financial markets, and participating in risk assessments and supervision at large financial institutions. The job also involves a considerable amount of travel.
Requirements include a Ph.D. in economics, finance, or a related field; demonstrated research capability; and strong written and oral communication skills. Senior-level candidates should have a significant amount of relevant industry experience and/or an established research record as demonstrated by publications in peer-reviewed journals. Salary and level of position will be commensurate with background and experience. Due to hiring restrictions, we ask that the applicant disclose his/her citizenship and resident/visa status when applying for the position.
