Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) group within Fannie Mae is seeking a highly motivated Post-Doc for limited term employment (one year, renewable). While economics is the primary field of study, we will consider related social science disciplines, as well.

Candidates should have research experience in applied econometrics, demography, and/or housing and real estate economics. Potential candidates should demonstrate an ability to support research, experience with econometric modeling, technical ability with statistical software packages, excellent communication skills and must have an earned doctorate in economics or a related field by June 2019. The ideal candidate will have specific experience with mortgage-related data, e.g. HMDA.

Major responsibilities include managing large datasets, developing appropriate datasets tailored to address specific research questions, and supporting staff economists on a variety of projects as may be assigned. Support will also be provided for candidate self-directed research projects.

In addition to working on real-world problems in a business setting, ESR economists have the opportunity to conduct independent research in collaboration with outside faculty, attend academic conferences, and develop papers targeted or publication. Such activities are encouraged and supported.

For full consideration, please submit materials by 12/21/2018.
