We are looking for a dynamic and capable Associate Economist to join our research team in Beijing as an expert on Chinese consumption and labor market developments and trends.
The main objective of the position is to establish The Conference Board as a thought leader on Chinese consumption and labor market trends and thereby help members improve their strategic understanding and business planning.
The Associate Economist will undertake short-, medium- and long-term analyses of consumer market and labor market trends and developments in China and study the demographic and policy factors shaping and influencing household consumption in China.
Associate Economist will undertake research involving quantitative and qualitative economic analysis for China, be responsible for producing regular written China Center research deliverables (in English), and act as the lead researcher for our consumer and labor markets’ programs in China.
The Economist is expected to track policy and economic developments related to these areas and to produce high-quality research products based on in-depth primary and secondary research. The Economist will also be required to collaborate with China Center and global team members to interpret developments and assess their impact on China’s economy and business environment, and on the regional and global economy. Economist will also be expected to act as the primary developer of the China Center’s research agenda as it relates to the household consumption topic area. Finally, Economist will present ideas and research in person, via teleconference and web presentations to China Center and global Conference Board members and establish The Conference Board as a “credible voice” in the China economic development debate.
Associate Economist will contribute to conceptualizing and constructing PPT-based analysis and narrative for China Center member events and meetings. He/she will also offer substantial input into the overall China Center messaging in the specific topic area.
