The Bank of Canada invites applications for Senior Analyst, Principal Researcher and Research Adviser positions. (Note: Positions offered will be based on the depth of relevant experience.)

ABOUT THE BANK OF CANADA
The Bank of Canada is the country's central bank and pre-eminent macro policy institution. We offer challenging work and many opportunities for professional development for highly qualified candidates specializing in macro/microeconomics, finance, international economics and econometrics.

At the Bank, you will support the economic and financial welfare of Canadians and contribute to our work at an international level. You will take part in leading-edge analysis, participate in the conduct of monetary policy, help promote the safety and efficiency of our financial system, and collaborate with your colleagues within the Bank and at other organizations in Canada and abroad. We offer a competitive compensation package, a superior work environment, and an open culture that supports diversity and fosters discussion and debate.

While we encourage applications from candidates in all areas of finance and economics, we are particularly interested in those candidates who are conducting research on:
--empirical asset pricing (especially with applications to fixed-income or foreign exchange markets)
--applied issues in banking (empirical and theoretical)
--issues related to financial stability (e.g., market volatility, liquidity, asymmetric information, contagion, risks in derivatives markets, and bank and financial market regulation)
--international economics and finance
--monetary and macroeconomics (especially real-financial linkages)
--nowcasting and forecasting

Bank of Canada researchers are encouraged to present their work at academic conferences and to publish in top academic journals. We provide generous research and travel support, as well as access to extensive economic and financial data.
