Call for proposals: BIS Research Fellowship
The Bank for International Settlements invites research proposals from academics for its Research Fellowship programme. Fellowships will be awarded to scholars who have established a strong reputation in their field and whose proposal allows for fruitful collaboration with BIS economists.
Successful candidates will be invited to the BIS's Monetary and Economic Department (MED) for short periods, ranging from a few days to several weeks (not exceeding a maximum period of three months for a larger project). The fellowship assignment can also be divided into a series of short visits for the different stages of a co-authored paper. Candidates will conduct economic research on policy-related issues of relevance to the BIS. The programme aims to:
- promote policy-relevant research that meets the highest academic standards;
- allow prominent scholars to gain an insight into the policymaking environment of the BIS; and
- foster joint research between academics and BIS economists.
About the BIS
The BIS carries out research to shed light on issues of core interest to the central bank community, to support meetings of Governors and other central bank officials, and to provide analytical backing for the activities of the various Basel-based committees. MED contributes to these tasks by conducting research on monetary and financial stability, monetary economics, macroeconomics and finance, financial markets, central bank governance and other institutional issues.
While at the BIS, research fellows will be expected to complete one or more research papers of a theoretical or empirical nature for presentation at internal seminars and external conferences and for publication both as a BIS Working Paper and in a leading refereed journal.
