OUR MISSION: The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforces a variety of federal antitrust and consumer protection laws. The Commission seeks to ensure that the Nation's markets function competitively and are vigorous, efficient, and free of undue restrictions. The Commission also works to enhance the smooth operation of the marketplace by eliminating acts or practices that are unfair or deceptive. Finally, the Commission undertakes economic analysis to support its law enforcement efforts and to contribute to the policy deliberations of the Congress, the Executive Branch,other independent agencies, and state and local governments when requested.
FTC economists make independent policy recommendations to the Commission based on their theoretical and empirical analysis of the relevant issues. Research is supported and encouraged, in part through the Bureau's working paper series, seminar series, and the annual FTC Microeconomics Conference. FTC economists regularly present their work at seminars and conferences, and publish in top journals. Qualified applicants must exhibit thorough comprehension of microeconomic analysis and effective written and oral communication skills. Economists in all fields of applied microeconomics or econometrics are encouraged to apply.
