Research Associates

In our Research department, about 20 economists split their time between working on policy-related questions and their own independent academic research. Research associates help the economists with their research and policy memos. These memos are used to brief the Richmond Fed’s president on the state of the economy, policy questions and current economic research.

If you’re a recent college graduate thinking about applying to a Ph.D. program, working as a research associate is an ideal way to learn more about academic economic research.
