Job Description

We are looking for intellectually curious team players with strong quantitative skills to join our tightly knit, ambitious, and growing Sydney office. From day one as a Research Analyst (RA) at Brattle, you will participate in project teams with senior consulting staff and leading industry experts, analysing complex matters such as asset valuation, energy market design, transfer pricing and tax controversies, securities litigation, and infrastructure access disputes.

Brattle offers a diverse, stimulating, and collegial environment. Our comprehensive Graduate Program begins with a weeklong training at our headquarters in Boston where you will learn Brattle’s best practices on how to build economic models, write code, and tackle complex economic problems. At the same time, you will develop an international network of like-minded peers through activities like scavenger hunts, dinner cruises, and much more! Professional development at Brattle continues through ongoing training in topics ranging from programming to the structure and regulation of specific industry sectors.

A typical day for Brattle RAs includes:

  • Combining economic theory and industry knowledge to solve real problems

  • Diving into data, using statistical analyses to extract information from messy data

  • Constructing models from a blend of theoretical concepts to answer complex questions

  • Reviewing literature and industry trends to understand the debate around key developments

They work seamlessly in teams, have exceptional analytical skills (preferably data analysis experience using software such as R or Stata), a passion for creative problem-solving, and the ability to communicate complex concepts effectively. Most importantly, Brattle RAs are looking to learn and take ownership of their work.
