The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston is offering paid in-residence fellowships for graduate students in economics to conduct research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. The dissertation fellowship program offers individuals an opportunity to interact with economists and visiting scholars in the Bank’s Research Department, further their dissertation research, obtain feedback on their work, increase their exposure to scholarly research, and participate in department research activities, such as seminars and brown-bag discussions.

Applications will be accepted for positions in the summer, spring, and fall. Candidates should include their preferred timeframe and their general availability in their cover letters. Fellowships can last from a minimum of eight weeks to a maximum of twelve weeks. Preference is given to PhD candidates whose dissertation topics are in macroeconomics, international economics, labor, and macro-finance.

The 2019 application period is closed. Questions about the program may be sent to dissertationfellows@bos.frb.org.
