Available Positions at Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance
The Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance (EIEF) is an independent research institute, created in 2008 by the Bank of Italy.
EIEF produces world-class research in economics and finance, generates ideas which are useful in the policy debate, and creates an environment that can help reverse Italy’s “brain drain” by both attracting strong foreign scholars and inducing the best Italian scholars trained abroad to return to Italy. EIEF also aims to strengthen higher education in Italy co-operating with Italian universities, with a focus on graduate research-oriented courses and on supervision of selected Ph.D. students.
EIEF offers a working environment that adopts the standards of and strives to be competitive with the best international academic institutions. The result is an intellectually rich and dynamic environment, free from many of the bureaucratic constraints that burden the Italian academia, able to pay competitive salaries, strictly meritocratic in its selection criteria, and strongly research oriented.
The Institute maintains close links with the Bank of Italy and its highly qualified research staff. The relationship with the Italian central bank provides researchers at EIEF with both an opportunity to influence policymaking and a challenge to address substantive policy issues in their work.
EIEF offers a pleasant and stimulating environment that is very congenial for researchers, excellent research facilities and beautiful premises located in the center of Rome, in Via Sallustiana, 62 (near Via Veneto), with abundant office space and brand-new facilities.
Visitors are expected to contribute to the intellectual environment of the Institute and interact with other researchers; they may be asked to teach a short advanced course and to be available to talk to Ph.D. students.
