Fannie Mae Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) Group (one year, renewable)
Posted: 5/28/2019

The Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) group within Fannie Mae is seeking a highly motivated researcher 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, housing or real estate economics, demonstrate an ability to support research, experience with econometric modeling, technical ability with statistical software packages, and excellent communication skills, and must have a PhD or be ABD. The ideal candidate will have specific experience with mortgage market data, e.g., HMDA.


Major responsibilities include managing large datasets, developing 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 for publication. Such activities are encouraged and supported.


ESR is headed by the Chief Economist and its mission is to deliver high quality forecasts and independent research and analysis on relevant economic, demographic and housing-related topics to inform Fannie Mae business decisions.


ESR team members have published in leading academic publications including, but not limited to, the Journal of Banking and Finance, the Journal of Housing Economics, the Journal of Urban Economics, Real Estate Economics, and Regional Science and Urban Economics.
