Norges Bank Research seeks PhD-students for research internships in Oslo, Norway. The responsibilities of Norge Bank Research include research, reports and analyses related to monetary policy and financial stability. Duration of the internships will be 3 months in 2015.
Norges Bank’s PhD internship program is directed toward PhD-students who are specializing within macroeconomics, banking and finance. Interns are expected to collaborate closely with other researchers at Norges Bank, with the aim to pursue a project until publication in an international academic journal.
During their stay, interns are expected to give at least one seminar, and to interact with both policy staff and fellow researchers. Co-authorship with Norges Bank staff is strongly encouraged. Within one year of starting the internship, the internship project should result in a Norges Bank Working Paper.
Candidates must submit a research proposal for a project to work on during the internship period. Policy relevance and academic quality of the proposal are key selection criteria. Candidates must be enrolled in a PhD-program and have time to complete their research started at Norges Bank shortly after the internship has ended. Applications must contain a CV and reference letters, as well as the project proposal. Ongoing or completed research projects should also be included in the application.
Accepted interns will have their travel costs to Norway covered, and receive a salary that covers accommodation and other costs of living in Norway.
Apply online HERE by 11 November 2014. Selection for internship positions will be based on a project proposal of 2-5 pages, as well as CV, references and ongoing research. The proposal serves to ensure that the research interests of selected candidates align with the interests of Norges Bank.
