Summer Fellowship Opportunity at the University of Chicago
Posted: April 3, 2020
The Energy Policy Institute at Chicago (EPIC) invites applications for the Summer 2020 Research Fellowship. An interdisciplinary research and training center at the University of Chicago, EPIC is contributing innovative solutions to the global energy challenge: how can we ensure that people around the world, today and in the future, have access to reliable, affordable energy needed for human development without putting our health, environment and climate at risk? Previous results from EPIC projects have been influential with policymakers worldwide and featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and other leading publications.
Successful candidates will report to Michael Greenstone, Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago and the Director of EPIC. Responsibilities span all stages of research, including managing projects, collecting and analyzing data, creating presentations, and editing manuscripts. Typical research projects involve the analysis of environmental and energy data from the United States, India, China, and other countries utilizing quasi-experimental and experimental methods, as well as development of computational economic models of energy markets.
Applicants must be in their penultimate year of study and have strong quantitative and programming skills. Candidates with research experience are strongly preferred, especially those with experience programming in Stata, R, Python or Matlab. The ideal candidate would work for EPIC for around ten weeks before returning to school. EPIC offers competitive salary and employee benefits. Applications will be reviewed as they are received, with rolling decisions, but all applications must be received by May 2nd to be considered. Due to the high volume of applications, only candidates shortlisted for an interview will be contacted.

Director’s Financial Analyst Program at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
Posted: October 4, 2019
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is recruiting this fall for the Director’s Financial Analyst position, and we want to encourage graduating seniors to apply. We are hiring for positions that begin in January 2020 and July 2020, and Class of 2020, 2019, and 2018 graduates are eligible to apply.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
This unique, two-year rotational fellowship sits at the intersection of the federal government and the financial services industry. Director’s Financial Analysts are given the opportunity to hone analytical and problem solving skills while helping to make markets for consumer financial products work for Americans. Members of the Director’s Financial Analyst Program will experience diverse roles, responsibilities, and areas of expertise. As a result, in a short period of time, analysts will play an integral role in everything the Bureau does, from rigorous data-driven policy creation and market monitoring to on-site supervision of market participants.
All analysts will complete developmental rotations in offices throughout the CFPB. These rotations are designed to provide exposure to the analysis, strategy, research, education, policy development, supervision, enforcement, and rulemaking activities throughout the Bureau.
We are recruiting for positions that begin after the 2019-2020 academic year.
Previous Director’s Financial Analysts have used the program as a springboard to further their careers. Some graduates of the program have moved on to:
• Grad school (e.g., Yale, MIT, Columbia, Harvard)
• Private industry (e.g., Amazon, Uber, PayPal)
• Public sector (e.g., Department of the Treasury, NY Fed, local government)
HOW TO APPLY
We are currently accepting resumes through our posting on their school’s job posting website. However, to officially apply, students will need to do so at https://www.consumerfinance.gov/careers during our live application window on USAJobs. The first window will be from October 18th – November 1st, and the second window will be in early spring 2020. Students who send an email demonstrating interest will be notified when the application becomes available.
Research Associate Position – Yale Program on Financial Stability
Posted: October 4, 2019
Research Associates will be part of a team working to launch the New Bagehot Project, an online platform for the dissemination of information on how to respond to financial crises. Working under the supervision of senior staff, Research Associates will be responsible for developing case studies of specific interventions attempted by policymakers during the Global Financial Crisis and other crises throughout history. These case studies focus on the critical design decisions made in establishing the interventions and will serve as the backbone for an online “playbook” that future policymakers can consult to help guide them during financial crises. Although the work of our Research Associates will be different than that done in traditional RA positions in economics, we think that this opportunity will still be a good fit for some students interested in pursuing graduate studies in economics.
