The Development Economics (DEC) Vice-Presidency of the World Bank is seeking to recruit research economists. DEC is the main area where policy-relevant research is conducted at the World Bank. Research economists are expected to maintain an outstanding scholarly publication record, as well as provide relevant policy advice and technical expertise to colleagues throughout the World Bank, and to policymakers in client countries.

We are interested in attracting candidates with interests in all areas of economics relevant to development, including macroeconomics, public finance, international economics, trade, finance, applied microeconomics, poverty and inequality, gender, rural and agricultural economics, urban economics, natural resource and environmental economics, and the economics of climate change.

We seek candidates with (i) strong technical skills; (ii) a record of – or good prospects for – publication of high-quality original research in peer-reviewed journals, (iii) the ability to communicate technical knowledge and expertise in a policy environment; and (iv) excellent spoken and written proficiency in English. We are considering new PhDs as well as more experienced candidates with relevant post-doctoral academic or non-academic experience.
