Research Associates

Join the Research Associate staff

Are you a recent graduate considering applying to a Ph.D. program? If so, working as a Research Associate (RA) is an ideal way to learn more about academic economic research.

Through our Research Associates Program, you’ll have access to our economists working in various areas and learn from them through exclusive seminars and hands-on projects. You’ll also help economists with their independent academic research and policy memos to brief our Bank’s president on the state of the economy, policy questions, and current economic research. 

Each day in this program will give you a chance to learn and grow your experience related to dynamic economic models, coding, data analytics and visualizations and paper reviewing. Our program also offers a flexible work schedule and tuition reimbursement for you to take courses related to your work. 

Learn more about being a Research Associate at the Richmond Fed and meet our current RA team. When you’re ready to apply for an opportunity, select "Economic/Research" in the search criteria.
