The Federal Reserve Board 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 by individuals of groups traditionally less represented in economics and finance.

Candidates must demonstrate the potential to contribute creatively to academic research and policy in a collaborative workplace and to recognize differing viewpoints related to their work. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in economics, finance, or a related discipline, or must be nearing completion of their doctoral dissertation. At the senior level, candidates must have a strong ongoing publication record in areas of interest to the Board.

The Board hires people with specialties drawn from a broad range of topics in economics and finance, including, among others: behavioral economics; econometrics and data science; economic measurement; financial institutions and markets; financial stability and macroprudential policy; foreign economies; industrial organization; international trade and finance; labor; macroeconomics; microeconomics; monetary economics; payment systems; and public economics.

The Board employs over 300 Ph.D. economists with a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and expertise. Researchers at the Board benefit from extensive and unique data resources, state-of-the-art computing facilities, highly trained and motivated research assistants, and active speaker series and workshops.
