The Quantitative Supervision & Research (QSR) unit of the Supervision, Regulation and Credit (SRC) Department at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond is looking for a highly motivated individual to assist financial economists and quantitative analysts with academic research, analytical projects, and supervisory initiatives.
The Research Analyst (RA) will perform economic and statistical analyses using standard econometric/data storage software to support our economists’ research initiatives with the chance to co-author analytical products and research papers, and more generally will contribute to our financial supervision mission. The RA will report to a QSR Manager.
We are looking for candidates with diverse backgrounds, interests, and perspectives. During the two to three years our RAs spend in QSR, we provide them with formative development opportunities in a culture that promotes knowledge sharing through collaborating on the job and by hosting seminars and brown bags. Our RAs develop banking/regulatory knowledge and expand their quantitative toolkit through hands-on assignments, self-study, and formal training. Our RAs also get the opportunity to work with a wide range of financial datasets, including confidential data. We provide a friendly and quantitative-oriented environment where RAs can learn, grow, and develop their own skills and interests, while contributing to our supervisory and research projects.
With an application, candidates are required to submit three documents: (1) a resume (CV); (2) a cover letter stating why they are interested in the job, why they are a good match to the job, and how the RA experience will fit in their future career; and (3) university transcript(s). Transcripts (unofficial copies are okay at this time) and other required documents should be uploaded as attachments to your electronic submission.
