Internships

Join the Center as an Intern

Each year, the Center for Financial Research offers paid internships to undergraduate and graduate students to work alongside economists and research assistants in our Washington, DC, office.

Research at the Center focuses on banking, financial markets, consumer finance, risk measurement, deposit insurance, and systemic risk, among other topics. Interns assemble data, perform data analyses, compose short memoranda, help write scholarly research, and assist with seminar planning. Interns also have the opportunity to learn about banking, finance, regulatory economics, and applied statistics; learn and receive training in SAS, Stata, and other statistical packages; and become proficient at data analysis.

Interns must be enrolled as full-time students. Internships are limited to a one-year term, with a possible one-year extension. Interns may have the opportunity to advance to a permanent position at the FDIC.

If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Rose at (202) 898-7204.
