Research Analyst Position at the New York Fed

Research Analysts play an integral role in both the policy and research functions of the Research and Statistics Group.  Our economists, whose specialties include banking and payment systems, capital markets, international economics, macroeconomics, and microeconomics, work closely with Research Analysts.  Upon leaving the Fed, Research Analysts choose to pursue either graduate school, and are consistently accepted by top programs, or a wide variety of public and private sector opportunities. In recent years, our RAs have gone on to pursue PhDs in Economics or Finance at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, University of Chicago, UC Berkeley, and Wharton, among others.  Aside from economics, previous RAs have also gone to law and public policy programs at Harvard Kennedy School, Princeton, Yale, and others.

We seek candidates who have records of superior scholarship and academic curiosity.  Research Analysts usually come from strong economics, policy, mathematics, or computer science backgrounds, though a major in one of these fields is not a necessity.  Successful candidates often have previous research experience, and many are considering careers in economic research, public policy, or other related fields.

In addition, we seek candidates from a wide range of backgrounds that are typically underrepresented in economics.  It is important to us that we succeed in recruiting a diverse cohort of research analysts each year. Thus we encourage many students with varying experiences and backgrounds to apply. As a representative of your institution and student body, we ask that you please help us in passing this message along to any candidates you may know who may be otherwise hesitant to apply.

Here you will also find a brochure with further details about the Research Analyst position. Applications are being accepted now until October 15 at http://www.newyorkfed.org/careers/current_opportunities.html.

The Research Analyst position is an unparalleled opportunity to work with a world-class research and policy team.  We would greatly appreciate your encouragement of bright and interested students to apply.

Sincerely,
Rachel Schuh
Research Analyst, Macroeconomic and Monetary Studies

Change Corps is looking for talented Change-makers for our 1 year, paid, training academy for activists
 
Find out more information at www.changecorps.org or contact Claudia Iglesias, Change Corps Recruitment Director, jobs@changecorps.org.
 
WE WANT CHANGE. A more equal and democratic America. A greener America that doesn’t let ideology blind us to science. One that respects our freedom as individuals while realizing that we’re all in this together. Yet, too often we see change stuck on so many of the issues that we care about. That’s where Change Corps comes in.
 
Change Corps is a paid, one-year, full-immersion training program in grassroots organizing. When Change Corps organizers complete their training, they know how to organize people to get change unstuck on the issues they’re passionate about, and will have an opportunity to become part of a wave of new organizers who will keep pushing and prodding our country forward for years to come.
 
What will you work on?
Organizers receive eight weeks of classroom training and spend most of the year gaining hands-on field experience working to make a difference on issues like women’s rights, gun violence, immigration reform, voting rights, marriage equality and money in politics. Organizers will work on three to five different campaigns throughout the year in cities across the country, providing critical field support for partner groups leading the charge on these issues and many more. This past year, our campaign partners included the National Education Association, MoveOn.org, and Everytown for Gun Safety.
 
Training
You’ll learn the skills necessary to plan town hall meetings, build and work with coalitions united for a common cause, set up and speak at press conferences, recruit and train volunteers, collect petitions, direct a canvass office, and much more. You’ll learn how to mobilize a community toward a common goal and build the kind of support and grassroots action that persuades decision-makers to stop obstructing change and embrace it instead. And you’ll learn these skills from people like Bill McKibben of 350.org, Van Jones of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and former host of CNN’s Crossfire, Justin Ruben of MoveOn.org, and Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood.
 
Salary and benefits
The target annual compensation for this position is $25,500. We also offer an excellent training program, a competitive benefits package, and have opportunities for advancement.
 
Qualifications
Does social change get you fired up? We’re looking for:
  • Young leaders who are ready to take on some of the biggest challenges of our day.
  • Bright, talented, passionate people with a strong work ethic.
  • Problem solvers who don’t just see problems but envision creative solutions.
  • A strong commitment to working toward goals and getting results.
  • Outstanding verbal and written communication skills.

Learn more
Find out more information at www.changecorps.org or contact Claudia Iglesias, Change Corps Recruitment Director, at jobs@changecorps.org.

What is Impact?
Impact is a nonprofit that runs grassroots campaigns on public interest issues.

The Job

You’ll help us educate and engage more students and citizens on the most critical issues of our time. You’ll help us get our issues into the media, build coalitions, organize events and lobby decision-makers. Ultimately, you’ll help us build the kind of public support it takes to create social change. As an Organizer, you will:

  • Learn how to analyze problems, push for smart solutions, and build the public support it takes to win
  • Work side-by-side with one of our organizers, learning the ropes.
  • Attend briefings and trainings to learn even more about the issues and gain organizing skills

This full-time two year position, will you get the training and experience you need, but we also hire our most talented and committed organizers to become lead organizers and organizational directors.

Our Campaigns:

We’re working to tackle global warming. We’re looking to replace dirty energy, one of the largest contributors of pollution and carbon pollution, with clean energy like wind and solar. Despite pushback by big oil and coal, we are working to make it easier for people to go solar and have clean, local, and independent energy sources.

We’re working to stop the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms. Antibiotic resistance is on the rise, but factory farms keep pumping antibiotics into the daily feed of perfectly healthy animals – putting our lives at risk in the process – just to fatten them up a little faster. We need to change the rules and change the marketplace so it makes more sense to go antibiotic-free than to continue doing business as usual. And it’s now starting to happen: McDonald’s recently agreed to stop the routine use of human antibiotics on the chicken it sells, and Subway has also come out against unnecessary use of antibiotics, thanks to our campaigns. 

We’re working to protect our rivers, lakes and streams. We’re working prevent more problems like the recent big chemical spill in West Virginia or the massive toxic algae bloom in Lake Erie, both of which left hundreds of thousands of people without clean drinking water. To do so, we’re building power to defend and fund the recently restored Clean Water Act, protecting streams that were left open to polluters because of loopholes in the law. 

The Internship: We’re hiring interns in Washington D.C. and in 25 states nationwide for our fall class of 2016. You'll find a list of locations on our website. 

Priority deadline: September 27th

Final deadline: October 18th 

Apply today: weareimpact.org/internship-apply.html

State Coordinator
MoveOn PAC’s Voter’s Rising Campaign
 
MoveOn Political Action represents more than 8 million Americans from all walks of life who use innovative technology to lead, participate in, and win campaigns for progressive change. . We are a federal PAC focused on demonstrating MoveOn members’ power at the ballot box and electing candidates who reflect MoveOn members’ values. We’re currently recruiting for leaders to coordinate our campaign to reach voters across the country, and support progressive candidates around the country. We’re kicking off one of our biggest election programs ever—and we need your help. The Koch brothers and their massive right-wing empire are threatening to buy the U.S. Senate—but if we turn out the same progressive voters who voted in 2008 and 2012, we can win.

We've got a plan to make it happen, the MoveOn way, by powering a grassroots movement. We're opening up four volunteer offices, including one right near Union Square, using state-of-the-art technology to make calls to 5 million voters in the states that will decide control of the Senate. This is an unpaid, volunteer opportunity in which you will gain valuable abilities in electoral work, policy and candidate strategy, and incredible leadership skills. We are looking for personable, engaged students with some background knowledge of federal policy and elections, who are passionate about progressive policy. Coordinators will be in charge of one of the critical states (North Carolina, Kentucky, Iowa and Michigan), researching the candidates, issues and policy implications at stake in the state. They will brief volunteers on these issues, create talking points, and assist in the messaging for our volunteers.

To apply please send your resume to isabella@moveon.org or call us at (646) 620-9398 with any questions.
