CBO’s visiting scholars have a unique opportunity to address complex budgetary and economic issues. The agency is especially interested collaborating with scholars who specialize in macroeconomics, health economics, financial economics, and public economics, though it welcomes applications from analysts in all areas. Visiting scholars conduct policy-related research, use the agency’s data and facilities, and collaborate daily with CBO’s staff members to contribute to the agency’s analysis. Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree and considerable expertise in their field. Appointment lengths vary based on the project.
