The Federal Reserve Board is committed to attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce. As such, we especially encourage submissions from groups traditionally less represented in economics and finance. We recognize the benefit derived from different perspectives and look to foster this when reviewing candidates.

The Board is seeking candidates who demonstrate the potential to contribute creatively to academic research and policy in a collaborative workplace and to engage constructively with differing viewpoints in their work. We invite applications from candidates with a Ph.D. in economics, finance, or a related discipline, or who are nearing completion of their doctoral dissertation. At the senior level, we are looking for candidates with 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: asset pricing; behavioral economics; corporate finance; econometrics and data science; economic measurement; financial institutions and markets; financial stability and macroprudential policy; foreign economies; industrial organization; international trade and finance; labor; market microstructure; 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. More information on our research staff and resources is available at
