The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) seeks two Financial Economists for the Division of Depositor and Consumer Protection (DCP). All candidates with an interest in applied microeconomics are encouraged to apply. A background in banking or consumer finance research is not required.
The FDIC’s mission is to maintain stability and public confidence in the nation's financial system. In support of this mission, economists in DCP conduct research on topics that include consumer and household financial decision-making, consumer financial product markets, community development, economic inclusion, consumer protection, and fair lending. Economists participate in the design and analysis of regularly-conducted, high-profile household and bank-level national surveys, as well as other consumer-related research initiatives.
DCP economists are expected to conduct independent self-directed research for presentation at professional conferences and publication in peer-reviewed academic journals. Economists at the FDIC have both access to a wide range of proprietary data and support by research assistants to further their research agendas.
In addition to an active consumer research seminar series, DCP also sponsors a consumer research symposium that brings together academics and researchers in government and think tanks. (Past conference programs may be found here:
