The Visiting Scholar programme aims at offering external researchers the opportunity to carry on their research at the Banque de France and interact with the bank's research staff. Visits usually last a couple of weeks, but can be extended up to four weeks, depending on research projects, preferences and availabilities.
We invite applications from established researchers both in academia and public or international institutions (notably central banks). Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Economics or Finance and be active researchers in fields of interest for the Bank (notably: macroeconomics and monetary policy, financial intermediation and financial stability, climate change mitigation and adaptation, growth and productivity). Young scholars are also encouraged to apply.
Selected applicants will receive funding to cover the travel and accommodation costs associated with their visit.
Applications shall be submitted by 30 November 2023 for visits planned during the period from Juanary to June 2024. Responses to selected candidates will be sent by mid-December 2023.
Preference will be given to applications that have the potential to develop into a future research collaboration with the Banque de France staff.
