  • Assisting economists in the analysis of current public policy issues and events

    RAs help economists conduct current analysis and other short-term research on monetary policy, bank regulation, payments systems, financial markets, and the state of the U.S. and global economies.

  • Conducting econometric, computational, and analytical research intended for Bank publications as well as academic journals

  • Programming in statistical packages, such as SAS, STATA, and MATLAB

  • Running financial, banking, macroeconomic, and international forecasting models

  • Reviewing and organizing economic and financial data

  • Compiling and assessing information from academic journals, market sources, and government reports
