US Department of the Treasury
Internship – Europe & Eurasia Office
The Europe and Eurasia office are seeking part-time graduate-level interns for Spring 2017 (January 20 – May 12, 2017). This office covers more than 50 economies from Iceland to Russia, which are about as dynamic an array of financial and political puzzles as you will find anywhere. The combination of a tepid and imbalanced recovery from the euro area crisis, geopolitical tensions that threaten to escalate into a full-blown crisis, and a vigorous G-20 process that requires active diplomacy with European counterparts presents this office with a daily set of challenges that capture the focus of high-level policy officials across the U.S. government. Our priorities in the coming year include supporting the economic recovery in Ukraine through bilateral initiatives, multilateral programs, and technical assistance; tracking the ongoing program and debt relief negotiations in Greece and monitoring the economic impact of the refugee crisis in the region; tracking Brexit negotiations and its broader impact on the European Union; countering Russian aggression, identifying mitigation strategies, and analyzing potential channels of contagion; continued engagement in and analysis of vulnerabilities associated with Europe’s weak growth outlook, financial sector vulnerabilities, debt overhangs, and risk of deflation; and deepening our analysis of the longer-term challenges facing the currency union and the various institutional and country reforms needed to promote its sustainability. In addition, we are broadening our engagement in Eastern Europe and in Central Asia, through the launch of the next stage of several small business finance and development initiatives with the EBRD.
Deadline: October 28
