US Department of Justice (Antitrust Division) Economic Research Assistant, BTT Gateway Job ID 7101

The Economic Analysis Group in the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice is looking for full-time economic research analyst candidates in Washington, DC. 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 or math for positions that may become available. This position qualifies for a Civil Service rating of GS-7 (annual pay currently $42,209). 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, and linear algebra is also useful. 

The Economic Analysis Group does not currently have any job openings but is recruiting for future positions. When a position becomes available, a formal application through the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) will be required.

To apply, submit a resume, a short writing sample on an economic topic, names of three references, and a copy of your college transcript, via e-mail to:
