Visiting Positions in Economics
Call for Applications: Atlanta Fed Early-Career Visitor Program
Visiting Scholar Positions in Economics Available
The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta has several short-term visiting positions available for junior and mid-career scholars during two periods: March–June and September–December 2021.
Scholars are expected to visit for one to three consecutive months, contribute to the intellectual and policy environment of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, and interact with other research economists while engaged in research projects of their own choosing. We encourage visitors to present their work at the department's research seminar series. We may also ask them to participate in departmental seminars, conferences, and policy discussions.
The visitor program is open to junior and mid-career economists across all fields of economics and finance. We especially encourage scholars whose research interests overlap with the economists currently in our Research Department to apply. Because the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta values diversity and inclusion, we invite women and underrepresented minorities to apply. Please note that we are not able to sponsor visas for visitors traveling from outside the country.
Terms and conditions
Scholars are offered fellowships comparable to similar early career visitor programs. To learn more about the program and the compensation for visitors, please email email@example.com with the subject line Short-Term Visiting Position.
How to apply
To apply, please send a CV and a one-page description of your research agenda through this application form. Specify both your preferred time of year and length of the visit. You must submit your application by November 30, 2020.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will the position be remote or in person?
We rather the scholar be here in person. However, given the current uncertainty, we cannot commit to a specific type of visit. As we learn more about the Fed's reopening plans, we will prioritize applicants who can visit after we reopen. Given our most up-to-date information, we will therefore be prioritizing applicants who can visit in fall 2021 or later. If you have preferred months and are also flexible, please indicate your flexibility in the special request box. We will reach out to find the best timeframe that works for all of us.
What do you mean by early career or mid-career?
We consider early and mid-career economists to be researchers who currently hold a PhD (that is, has already graduated) and has earned that PhD in the last 10 years.
Do you accept applications from local (in-town) visitors?
Although we strongly prefer out-of-town applicants, we invite any early or mid-career economist to apply.
Do you give permission to visitors to access Atlanta Fed special data, such as the business sentiment survey?
We will grant data access on a case-by-case basis. Most likely, that will depend on the economist(s) working with the data set. Please indicate your interest in a particular data set in the Special Request box, and we will take it into consideration.
Do you prefer current coauthors for the visiting positions?
We do not have a preference for current coauthors. We would like the program to be an opportunity to establish new connections.
How many positions are available?
There are multiple positions available. The exact number will depend on the length of the visit. The length, somewhere between one and three months, does not matter to our selection.
Should the visitor be in a particular field or have a particular topic?
We welcome applications from all fields of economics and finance. We will prioritize applicants working on topics that are of interest to economists in the department.
