CEA Staff Economist Opportunities

The Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) is currently recruiting Staff Economists. The CEA provides the President with objective economic analysis and advice on the development and implementation of a wide range of domestic and international economic policy issues. Staff Economists are typically Ph.D. students on leave from top programs, and are integral members of the CEA team.  They conduct advanced statistical analysis, contribute to reports distributed throughout the Administration and to Congress, and play a key role in producing the President’s daily economic briefing.

Staff Economists must be U.S. citizens and must be willing to be investigated for a security clearance. Most Staff Economists work at the Council for a full 12-month period. 

If you are interested in applying for this position, please email your resume, transcript, a single-authored writing sample. We also request two letters of recommendation (at least one must be from an economist and should be submitted directly from the recommender) to:

Steven Braun, Director of Macroeconomic Forecasting
President's Council of Economic Advisers
