Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Banque de France is planning to recruit several experienced or new Ph.D.s in economics, econometrics and finance for its headquarters in Paris. This year, areas of particular interest are macroeconomics (monetary macroeconomics, international economics, structural reforms and their impact on growth, forecasting and modelling), applied microeconomics (corporate finance, firm dynamics, investment and productivity, labour economics, international trade and finance).

The Banque de France provides an excellent work and research environment. The main tasks of the potential candidates will be to conduct high-quality policy-oriented research, publishable in international refereed journals, to produce reports and briefings for the Banque's senior management, to contribute to the Banque's publications and to the development of its new forecasting model.

Candidates will be expected to travel and participate in meetings organized by international institutions as well as interact with the academic community in their field of expertise. Three-year fixed-term, full-time contracts could be offered. Knowledge of French as a working language would be an asset. Salary and benefits vary with experience and are competitive on a European scale.
