Research Associates quickly master the following skills, among others: performing quantitative analysis using spreadsheet, statistical, and graphical packages; using the Washington, DC system of government and university libraries; collecting economic and financial statistics and utilizing databases to obtain information concerning firms and industries at issue. Over the course of a week, a research associate may work on several different projects concerning such disparate issues as the likely competitive effects of a proposed multi-billion dollar merger, the apportionment of Superfund clean-up costs, or the statistical evidence regarding employment discrimination. Research associates generally work in teams to tackle these projects.

The rich and diverse backgrounds of the research associates and the topical and high-profile projects that they work on contribute to a dynamic working environment.
