Full Text of JOE Listing:

The research department of Norges Bank, the Central Bank of Norway, has an opening for a research economist. Candidates should have obtained or be about to obtain their PhD in economics, financial economics or a related field, preferably with a specialization in a topic related to macroeconomics, monetary economics, labor economics, financial intermediation or financial stability.

In the other half, they provide research-based analyses to policy departments on topical issues related to monetary policy, financial stability, macroprudential policy and financial markets. Research economists disseminate relevant internal and external research to the Bank’s staff and liaison with academic and research institutions.
