Individuals with undergraduate training and limited prior work experience join IEc as Research Analysts (RA). Working with other IEc consultants, Research Analysts gather and evaluate data; perform analyses using a variety of economic, financial, or scientific methods; and communicate results in both written and oral form. RAs work with a variety of other IEc staff, and must be able to effectively perform as part of a project team. An RA's responsibilities require consistent exercise of discretion and judgment to work on projects of significance to IEc and its clients.


Research Analysts draw on knowledge from a wide range of specialized disciplines including economics, applied mathematics, public policy, engineering, chemistry, biology, ecology, and other environmental sciences; thus, academic training in any one of these areas may qualify a candidate for this position. Successful candidates possess a Bachelor's degree with high academic rank, have strong analytic and problem solving skills, and speak and write effectively.
