Our East Coast Competition Practice is currently recruiting Economists for an immediate start in our Washington, DC and Boston offices. Please indicate location preference (Washington DC, Boston, or either) in your cover letter. The position demands strong ability to perform quantitative analysis, knowledge of or interest in economics, and a broad range of research skills. An Economist is involved in nearly all aspects of project work, interacting closely with analysts, directors, and firm principals in analyzing data, preparing client presentations, and drafting reports. Through their involvement, Economists gain a comprehensive understanding of the industries and public policy issues relevant to the projects we work on. As skills and competencies develop, there will be greater opportunity for independent work and client interaction.
Ideal candidates would hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Economics, Mathematics, Statistics, or Data Science, plus at least three years of relevant work experience. We seek candidates who possess a strong academic background. Demonstration of quantitative skills, writing ability, and qualitative research skills are required. Knowledge of Excel and statistical programming packages such as STATA or SAS are preferred. Candidates must be highly motivated, analytical, detail-oriented, able to work independently and in teams, and have excellent oral and written communication skills. A Senior Economist role may be considered with the relevant job experience and educational background.
