The Economic Analysis Group in the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice is soliciting applications for full-time economic research analyst positions in Washington, DC, starting in the Fall 2018. The Economic Analysis Group has approximately 50 economists who provide economic analysis for antitrust cases brought by the Division. The primary focus of our work is applied microeconomics with an emphasis on competitive interactions between firms in specific markets. Research analysts work closely with staff economists to define relevant product and geographic markets, determine pricing patterns, provide statistical analysis of industry behavior, find trends in large datasets, and prepare materials (such as maps, data, charts, and graphs) that may be required for litigation. Duties may also include assisting staff economists working on articles for publication in economic journals.
The Economic Analysis Group is looking for detail-oriented, highly motivated individuals interested in economics. This position qualifies for a Civil Service rating of GS-7 (annual pay $45,972 in 2018.) A bachelor's degree with a grade point average of 3.0 or better is required, and you must be a U.S. citizen. Experience in working with spreadsheets, statistics, computer programming, and econometrics is useful. Course work in statistics, econometrics, calculus, computer science, and linear algebra is also useful.
