FDIC Research Job Opportunities
The Center for Financial Research (CFR) offers paid internships each year to undergraduate and graduate students to work alongside economists and research assistants. Because interns work in our Washington, DC office, all internship applicants must attend a college or university within commuting distance to Washington, DC.
Interns perform data analyses, help write scholarly research, assemble data, write short memoranda, and help organize seminars. Interns learn about banking, ﬁnance, regulatory economics, and applied statistics. They also learn statistical computing languages and become proficient at data analysis. The FDIC provides training in SAS, Stata, and other statistical packages.
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. The FDIC offers competitive compensation and an excellent benefits package.
