Each year, the Research Group seeks qualified candidates for two summer internship positions. Ph.D. students in all fields of economics and finance who are planning to graduate in 2023 are now welcome to apply for summer 2022 positions.
The program, begun in the summer of 2006, is designed to provide students with the opportunity to participate in the intellectual life of the Research Group. Throughout the internship, the students’ time is dedicated to furthering their dissertation research, interacting with research economists, and obtaining feedback on their work. Students are expected to present research, in an informal setting, at the beginning and end of the internship.
Interns are hosted for a period of eight weeks, between the second week of June and the first week of August, and receive compensation for the period in which they work in the program. This position will offer workplace flexibility, e.g., working remotely or on site as needed/desired during the week. However, interns will be expected to be in the office at least a couple days a week for meetings and team collaboration and therefore to live within a commutable distance. Interns must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and receive a booster shot within 30 days of being eligible to do so, unless the Bank grants an exemption based on a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief.
Please note that all program participants must be authorized to legally work in the United States. Applicants who are not currently authorized to work in the United States must make arrangements independently (for example, with their schools) to obtain the necessary work permissions to be able to participate in the program. The New York Fed sponsors neither visas nor work permits for this position.
The New York Fed’s Research Group also sponsors two positions in the AEA Summer Economics Fellows Program. The program allows the fellows to spend a summer in residence at a sponsoring institution, participating as members of the research community while engaged in a research project of their own choosing. The fellowships at the New York Fed have the same time frame, duration, and hybrid work model as the Ph.D. Summer Internships, with fellows expected to work onsite at least a couple days a week. Applications should be sent directly to the AEA. Further information on the program can be found on the
