The Bank of England is looking for motivated researchers to join our research community.
Research at the Bank of England covers the full scope of our remit for delivering monetary, macroprudential, and microprudential policy, centred around the five themes in the Bank of England’s Agenda for Research (BEAR). Our large research community includes researchers from a range of disciplines, with a common interest in issues relevant to central bank policymaking. Our research economists enjoy a rich and stimulating environment, have close engagement with policymakers, and make a key contribution to policy analysis. We have active seminar programmes and host high‐profile international conferences. We actively engage with leading research institutions and academics, providing researchers with the opportunity to work with external experts. As a large central bank, we provide sizable computing resources and have unique, rich and novel datasets.
The Experienced Researcher role is a permanent position for researchers that hold a PhD in any discipline relevant to central bank policymaking, and have post‐PhD work experience in academic or policymaking institutions.
Successful candidates should demonstrate a desire to carry out and publish high‐quality, innovative, and policy‐relevant research, as well as to contribute to live central bank policymaking. They are also expected to offer technical advice to junior researchers based on their expertise. As well as presenting at academic seminars and conferences, our researchers are expected to communicate their research internally and engage policymakers with research.
The Bank is fully committed to having a diverse and inclusive working environment: we want the best people to work for us and we want our workplace to be inclusive. We value all forms of diversity, including but not limited to age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, race, religion and sexual orientation. This role is open to flexible working patterns, which can include time working remotely. We are also committed to making workplace adjustments for all of our employees as needed, and for candidates throughout all stages of the selection process. We are a member of the Disability Confident scheme; if you wish to apply under this scheme, please check the box in the ‘Candidate Personal Information’ under the ‘Disability Confident Scheme’ section of the application.
