The Congressional Research Service (CRS) Government and Finance Division seeks an Analyst in Small Business and Economic Development Policy to join its Federalism and Emergency Management Section. The analyst will serve the U.S. Congress by providing in-depth research and analysis on policy issues pertinent to small business and economic development, federal contracting preferences, business development, and technical assistance programs, and may support research throughout CRS.
The ideal candidate will have experience conducting applied analysis that blends a background in economic development policy with detailed knowledge of small business development programs and principles, including federal contracting preferences. State and/or local planning experience and expertise connecting this experience to federal policy and programs is preferred. Strong public policy research, writing, and presentation skills are essential, as is the ability to work as part of a collaborative team. Candidates with experience explaining complex public policies, programs, and economic principles in terms that resonate with audiences without their level of expertise are encouraged to apply.

CRS is well known for analysis that is accurate, authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan. Its highest priority is to ensure that Congress has immediate access to the nation's best thinking on public policy issues of interest to its Members and Committees.
