FDIC Research Job Opportunities

The FDIC is an independent agency of the federal government that provides deposit insurance to U.S. banks and thrifts and serves as the primary regulator of banks chartered by the states that are not regulated by the Federal Reserve System. FDIC economists conduct and publish empirical and theoretical research on topics relevant to the condition of the banking industry, bank regulation, and deposit insurance. They develop statistical and financial models to support FDIC operations in finance, deposit insurance, bank safety and soundness, bank supervision, bank failure resolution, and consumer protection. The FDIC generally follows the academic job cycle and interviews prospective candidates at the annual AEA/AFA meetings. Immediate staff openings may be posted at any time. All applicants must be U.S. citizens. Current openings can be found at the Careers at FDIC website or by contacting the Center for Financial Research at
