INTERNSHIPS WITH THE US COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION

See details here.

 

The Division of Enforcement at the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission  has a focus on examination of data that provides forensic support to actions undertaken by the Commission.

 

We have an opportunity to engage one or two interns this Summer to work with our group of forensic economists in an unpaid internship of 20-40 hours a week, with the opportunity to be supervised in a directed study course for credit, if your university will permit this. This internship will be at our DC office near DuPont Circle.

 

The ideal student would be an advanced undergraduate or graduate who would benefit from exposure to the tools of applied economic analysis, and who is interested in becoming more proficient at SAS and/or Python and/or Bloomberg research.

 

We offer an illuminating opportunity to work on cases that will eventually be in the news, and the benefits that can only be obtained by job shadowing.

 

Students may contact Dr. John Buffington directly with a statement of interest and a brief CV of their background.
