The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) is recruiting for a Ph.D. level researcher position in the Methodology and Special Studies Branch of the Balance of Payments Division. BEA’s mission
as a leader in the development of new and innovative approaches to economic measurement is to strengthen our understanding of the U.S. economy by improving GDP and other national, regional, industry, and international accounts data.
Work in the international area involves research and analysis on international finance and investment, trade in goods and services, and the operations of multinational enterprises. A successful
candidate will conduct independent research on topics of importance to BEA’s mission and will be expected to publish that research in professional journals as well as present at conferences. We will consider candidates conducting research in any field, although
those who have demonstrated experience with empirical research involving international trade or finance and with using large data sets are preferred. More information is available in a recorded 1-hour webinar that was held for job candidates in an earlier
recruitment campaign, which is available at <http://bea.adobeconnect.com/p46pnzr5mdj/>.
