Full Text of JOE Listing:

The U.S. Treasury Department is looking for a staff director for the Office of Macroeconomic Analysis. This is an opportunity for a well-trained macroeconomist to have a meaningful impact on public policy.

The director is a key adviser to the Assistant Secretary for Economic Policy and other senior Treasury staff on issues related to the business cycle and economic growth. The director supervises a team of highly trained economists who monitor and interpret incoming economic data, conduct macroeconomic research, and work with counterparts at Treasury and other government agencies to develop policies aimed at establishing and maintaining robust economic growth.

The director regularly engages with counterparts at the Office of Management and Budget and the Council of Economic Advisers on macroeconomic issues, including the development of the economic assumptions that underlie the Administration’s budget projections. The director also meets with experts outside the U.S. government, including credit rating agency staff, business leaders, foreign officials, and scholars to discuss the state of the U.S. economy and future prospects.

Necessary skills include management experience, knowledge of macroeconomic data, experience developing and implementing macroeconomic models, and the ability to communicate complex economic concepts to a lay audience verbally and in writing.
