Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Bank of Finland's Research Unit invites applications for the Visiting Scholars Programme in the areas of interest for the Bank, i.e. macroeconomics, monetary policy and financial stability.

Spring 2020 visits will take place between January and June 2020. Visits usually last one to three weeks, although longer periods are possible.

We invite scholars from both academia and policy institutions, esp. central banks. Candidates should hold a doctorate in Economics or Finance at the time of applying and be active researchers. We particularly encourage first-time applications. Preference will be given to applications that have the potential to develop into a long-term collaboration with Bank’s staff.

We reimburse a single round-trip economy class ticket to Helsinki. We offer a remuneration intended to cover accommodation and food expenses. For visitors who cannot accept remuneration, these arrangements are negotiable.

We expect Visiting Scholars to present their own work in a seminar and to submit subsequently a paper to Bank of Finland Discussion Paper Series.
