Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Bank of Italy, the Italian central bank, intends to hold a competition to award four research fellowships for young economists with interest and experience in applied economic research and its policy implications. The fellowships will be with the Bank’s Directorate General for Economics, Statistics and Research, in Rome; they are for the term of twelve months and are renewable for another twelve. Winners will be asked to develop a research project of their own.
This year the research areas that are of special, but not exclusive, interest to the Bank are in the fields: macroeconomics and monetary economics; credit, banking, financial stability; international economics; microeconomic behaviour of firms and households; corporate finance; market design and regulation; public finance. Winners may also be asked to contribute to policy analysis and advise senior management on issues of relevance to the Bank within their field of expertise.

The Bank of Italy provides a stimulating working environment that offers the fellows the opportunity to participate in top-notch academic seminars and conferences and to interact with policy makers. Winners of a fellowship will receive a monthly stipend of € 4,000 before tax.

Applicants must have a Ph.D or equivalent degree or be about to receive one, i.e. have completed their exams (or other preparatory activity) and only have their theses to be discussed. Applicants must be fluent in English, both written and spoken.

Candidates may elect to be interviewed either in Rome at the head office of the Bank of Italy from 15 to 19 December 2014 or in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, during the annual meeting of the American Economic Association, from 3 to 6 January 2015.

Candidates who are deemed to have completed their research successfully on the basis of a technical evaluation by a committee of experts may be invited to participate in a selection for the recruitment of permanent employees at the starting level in the management career. Such candidates must meet the requirements for recruitment by the Bank of Italy (i.e. citizenship of Italy or another EU country, a university degree recognized in Italy, and enjoyment of full political rights).
