About The Division of Research

The Division of Research develops original current, accurate investment and financial markets research. Our research takes a top-down approach by looking at macro-conditions in the U.S. and global economy, domestic and international politics, and regulatory issues that have the potential of affecting the financial markets.

Rather than focus on specific equity or company research, the division produces economic, political, regulatory, industry, and sector research. We look for analytically-minded people from all academic backgrounds that demonstrate excellence across multiple disciplines, a strong interest in financial services, excellent writing skills, and knowledge of the global financial markets.

We are seeking PhD candidates in economics to join the Macro Research team. The team focuses on the intersection between economics and financial markets across a wide class of assets including equities, fixed income/credit, currencies, and commodities.
