Center for Financial Research
FDIC Research Job Opportunities
Each year, the Center for Financial Research (CFR) hires a number of research assistants (RAs). RAs work closely with staff economists to conduct quantitative analysis and produce scholarly research. They also gather information and compile data pertaining to the financial services industry and financial markets.
RAs advance their knowledge of the banking industry through statistical analyses and the study of the banking literature, and have the opportunity to coauthor scholarly papers. RAs become proficient at manipulating and analyzing financial data. The FDIC provides training in SAS, Stata, and other statistical packages.
Former RAs have gone on to PhD and other graduate programs at top universities, pursued careers in the financial sector and consulting, and advanced to higher positions within the FDIC and other agencies. These RA positions are limited to a two-year term, with a possible one-year extension.
The FDIC offers a competitive starting salary and an excellent benefits package.
