Title: C. Boyden Gray Fellow on Global Finance and Growth
Division/Program: Program on Global Business and Economics
The Atlantic Council seeks an intellectual entrepreneur to serve as the Council’s leading voice on global finance and growth at an existential moment for the future of Europe and the role of developed economies in setting the global economic agenda. The fellow will lead the Council’s work on regulatory policy affecting finance and others rules central to economic growth and innovation. The fellow will serve as a resident fellow in the Council’s dynamic Global Business and Economics (GBE) program, providing a go-to source for policymakers, press, and the wider public in understanding the deep implications of the financial crisis, and for policy recommendations responsive to economic and business decision-makers. This expert will also help the Council build a “prosperity pillar” of programming anchored in advancing Atlantic values and interests in free markets, good governance, sustainability, and growth.
The successful candidate will have an entrepreneurial spirit, communicate effectively, have a record of publishing, and enjoy the fast pace of building a world class international finance policy initiative on the strong foundations of existing Atlantic Council work. This position is located in Washington, DC, but would require international travel. The Atlantic Council offers a competitive compensation package commensurate with experience. The Council is an equal opportunity employer and seeks applicants with diverse backgrounds and of any nationality.
About the C. Boyden Gray Fellow on Global Finance and Growth
The global economy is at an inflection point. Developed economies are awash in debt and political crises threaten to mire both sides in further economic stagnation. New rules to govern financial markets are still not complete and other regulatory constraints on economic growth require reform. Unless these regulatory issues are addressed, the strength and influence of emerging economies and alternative forms of capitalism will increasingly challenge Western leadership and the free market model that has dominated the global economy since post World War II.
The C. Boyden Gray Fellow will place the Atlantic Council at the center of these sea changes in the global economic system, providing thought leadership and helping build an international platform for deliberations among government, business, and other crucial voices to identify and address the policy issues that will drive the post-crisis global economy.

About the Program on Global Business and Economics
The Global Business and Economics Program is a policy center that convenes business and government leaders from the United States and Europe to exchange ideas and design solutions to pressing global economic and financial challenges. Building upon and strengthening the already deep economic integration between Europe and the United States, the GBE program promotes transatlantic leadership in the global economy. Our aim is to identify areas for cooperation as well as convergence in policy in an effort to promote an open and mutually beneficial environment for transatlantic business, trade, and finance.
