Wim Duisenberg Fellowship
This programme is named after the first President of the ECB and aimed at senior professionals from academia, central banks and research institutions. Candidates should be internationally recognised experts in their field of research who wish to take a period of leave or a sabbatical from their current place of work.
The aims of the programme are
- to promote policy-relevant research that meets the highest academic standards;
- to offer research staff at the ECB the opportunity to gain exposure to, and expertise in, the most recent advances in economic research;
- to give prominent scholars the opportunity to gain an insight into the policy-making environment of the ECB.
About the fellowship
Successful candidates will be offered an assignment for a period of between two and eleven months to conduct economic research within Directorate General Research (DG/R).
While at the ECB, research fellows are expected to complete a research paper of a theoretical or empirical nature for presentation at internal seminars and external conferences, and for publication in the ECB’s Working Paper Series and a leading refereed journal. A proposal for a research project must be presented by candidates as part of the application procedure.
Research fellows conduct their activities at the ECB’s premises in Frankfurt am Main and are encouraged to interact with ECB staff, both in DG/R and in other business areas. They have access to the ECB library and to the computing and statistical facilities necessary to conduct their research. The call for papers is published in the first quarter of each year.
