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 2022 are now welcome to apply for summer 2021 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.
The interns are hosted for a period of eight weeks starting in June and receive compensation for the period in which they work in the program. Please note that all program participants must be authorized to 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 does not sponsor visas or work permits for this position.

The Research and Statistics Group of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York also sponsors every year two CSWEP Summer Fellowships. The CSWEP Summer Economics Fellows Program is sponsored by the American Economic Association and allows the fellows to spend a summer in residence at a sponsoring institution. Applications should be sent directly to CSWEP. Further information on the program can be found on the CSWEP site.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all non-essential members of the New York Fed’s Research and Statistics Group are currently working remotely (rather than at the headquarters building). The end date of this work-from-home posture has not yet been determined and will depend on the evolution of public health and other considerations.
Ph.D. interns and fellows will be subject to the same work arrangements as other non-essential Research and Statistics personnel. Therefore, Ph.D. interns and fellows may be required to work remotely for all or some of the duration of the program. Remote deployment of equipment–such as computers and phones—can only be done within the United States; interns and fellows must therefore be physically present in the United States for the duration of the program.

Application deadline: March 5, 2021.
