Macroeconomic Research Fellow
The Jain Family Institute (JFI) is seeking an analyst with a background in distributional macroeconomic modeling and monetary policy to support research projects on the Federal Reserve’s new strategic framework.
The ideal candidate would be a dissertation candidate or advanced student in a doctoral program in economics. This analyst will construct a Heterogeneous Agent New Keynesian model and assist in using it to evaluate monetary policy options. Prior work with HANK models is required.
The fellow will work principally with JFI’s director of macroeconomic research, with the opportunity to collaborate with our researchers and analysts across JFI.
Time commitment: approximately 10 hours a week.
Because JFI works with potentially sensitive data, the fellow will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement.
The fellow’s tasks will include:
- Constructing a HANK model for use at JFI.
- Preparing underlying data needed for model simulations.
- Assisting with research on monetary policy with the model.
Deadline: February 14, 2022. Submit materials at your earliest convenience.
