Career Opportunities for Research Associates

EI Research Associates are graduates of leading colleges and universities, generally with strong quantitative backgrounds in economics, statistics, math, or computer science.

Expectations

Research Associates quickly master the following skills, among others: performing quantitative analysis using statistical and graphical packages such as STATA and ArcGIS; utilizing databases and raw client data to obtain information concerning industries at issue; and creating tables, graphs and maps for expert reports and testimony. Over the course of a week, a research associate may work on several different projects concerning such disparate issues as the potential competitive effects of a proposed multi-billion dollar merger, damages assessment in contract disputes, or statistical evidence regarding employment discrimination. Research associates generally work in teams to tackle these projects. Therefore, research associates must be able to juggle multiple commitments and work effectively both leading and being directed by peers. The rich and diverse backgrounds of the research associates, broad industry exposure and opportunity to work on high-profile projects contribute to a dynamic working environment.
