Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Bank of England has made a commitment to increase our research capability. We are looking for highly trained and experienced researchers with the capacity to produce, publish and communicate innovative, world-class research and a fascination for the challenging policy issues facing modern economies. Our research agenda flows from fundamental central banking issues thrown up by the crisis and we are only one of a handful of institutions internationally with responsibility for monetary, macroprudential and microprudential policy.
We are looking to hire experienced research economists who may lead teams of researchers or work independently in collaboration with other researchers to deliver high-quality, cutting-edge research on a wide range of topics relevant to central banking. Currently, we are particularly looking for experts in the following areas: macroeconomics, international economics, financial stability, monetary policy analysis, banking, finance, regulation, econometrics, forecasting and big data analysis.
Successful candidates are expected to publish in top-quality journals and present at top conferences. They are also expected to offer technical advice to junior researchers based on their expertise, and communicate research findings effectively to senior policymakers to maximise the impact of their research on policy.
Candidates must hold a PhD in economics, finance or other discipline relevant to central bank policymaking, have a minimum of three years of post-PhD research experience in academic or policymaking institutions, and be a recognised researcher in their area of expertise with a track record of publications.
To apply, you will need to submit a CV and a recent research paper.
Closing date: 15th November 2015
