AECOM Mid-level Infrastructure Economist in Arlington - VA, Virginia

United States of America - Virginia, Arlington - VA

Job Summary

AECOM’s National Infrastructure Economics group is a multidisciplinary team with staff located across the U.S. We work closely with AECOM’s engineering and planning disciplines to conduct an applied economic analysis to support project development, policy and investment decision making. We apply our national experience and leadership in partnership with AECOM’s regional expertise to solve clients’ problems and support their work.

There are occasional opportunities for international work.

We would like to add an experienced mid-level Economist to the team to support planning and engineering projects across the country. The successful candidate will have a strong understanding of how economics supports the development, operation and management of infrastructure assets and networks.


The Economist will perform routine tasks independently, and work under the general supervision of project managers on more complex assignments. Typical projects will include freight planning, financial and economic analysis, regional economic assessments, benefit-cost analysis, capital program development, policy and technology analysis, environmental and sustainability evaluations, tax and revenue assessments, and others. S/he will handle assignments of a quantitative and qualitative nature; and communicate effectively with project staff and/or clients. Working with clients and team members, the Economist will create and apply economic and simulation models. S/he will build, manage and analyze large data sets based on proprietary client data and traditional public sources. Written communication is an important part of our work. The Economist will frequently prepare and deliver technical reports, presentations and client briefings. Candidates will be expected to manage individual analysis tasks upon hire and develop project management skills over time. While business development is not typically a part of this role, the Economist may be asked to assist with these activities. Occasional travel is required.
