New York, NY

Posted Mar 20, 2024 - Requisition No. 123989

With close to 50 economists, Bloomberg has an outstanding capacity to explain where the global economy and geo-politics are now, where they might be heading, and the ways in which the forces interact. 
Bloomberg Economics already offers a comprehensive macroeconomic research service for Terminal subscribers. That includes detailed forecasts, supported by thorough and original thematic research. 
As a next step, we are adding geoeconomics research, aiming for global coverage of key regions and issues from the Taiwan Strait to the Middle East and Latin America. The goal is to offer Bloomberg clients a deeper insight into the themes that drive economics, markets, and policy. 
We are seeking an expert on defense policy and technology to join our growing Geoeconomics team.


The successful candidate will work with Bloomberg’s chief geoeconomics analyst and other members of the team on research projects aimed at helping our clients understand military-related developments and evolutions in military technology, and how they impact geo-politics, the global economy and markets. 
Short-turnaround projects will include quick analysis of defense-related breaking news on geo-political events impacting geo-politics and the economy, from the introduction of new military platforms to the outbreak of conflict. 
Longer-term projects will include taking the lead in building data sets and models that provide a more systematic way of understanding how geo-politics, national politics, and economics intersect with defense policy and technology, and what that means for markets. 
We’ll measure success by the breadth and depth of our analysis on this growing area of focus for Bloomberg clients. 


  •  Take the lead in building out the teams' knowledge on the intersection of geo-politics, economics, and markets surrounding defense policy and technology.
  •  Develop and execute your own ideas for research projects, in addition to supporting collaborative projects.

  •  From time to time, work with Bloomberg’s economic and government reporters on joint projects.


  •  8+ years of relevant professional experience and demonstrated expertise in defense analysis
  •  Experience working on questions at the intersection of military issues, geopolitics, , the economy and financial markets.
  •  A degree in military science or studies, economics, political science, international relations, regional studies or a related field. A graduate degree would be a plus.
  •  Strong writing, research, communication and teamwork skills.
  •  English proficiency.
  •  Energy and the initiative to provide a consistent flow of original, high-quality analysis and to operate in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.


  •  Experience working on defense analysis
  •  Experience working in government, the military or military reserves, or an international institution focused on defense
  •  Experience generating content across a variety of formats, ranging from rapid turnaround responses to events to longer-term collaborative research.
  •  Additional expertise in geo-politically key regions, critical and emerging technology, political science, economics, geo-economics analysis, or other functional areas a plus.
