Turn Your PASSION for Economics into a CAREER.

Discover if Brattle is right for you.

“Within months of starting, I had the opportunity to co-author papers with some of the nation’s leading experts and was taking on as much responsibility as I could handle. My daily responsibilities range from quantitative data analysis to persuasive writing, from computer programming to marketing. The best part about working at Brattle is the diversity, both in terms of the challenges that I’m faced with and the skills that I’m developing.”

Why be a Brattle Associate?
Associates at Brattle combine the rigor and creative inquiry of academic work with the energy of an entrepreneur as they address some of the most challenging real-world problems in economics.

You will be surrounded by highly motivated and intellectually curious people working in teams with internationally recognized experts. You will apply the skills you learned in graduate school or in the industry to solve clients’ real-world problems. You will frame research approaches, develop work products, supervise and coach staff, and work with clients directly to understand their questions, develop information, and present results. As you gain experience, you will become actively involved in business development efforts and become an expert in your own right.

Brattle provides a stimulating, supportive, and collegial environment that lets our Associates thrive. We are particularly proud that many of the current leaders of the firm began their careers as Brattle Associates.
