As such, we especially encourage submissions from 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 400 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.
