If you have or will soon earn a Ph.D. or equivalent degree, you may be eligible for the research fellowships for economists that the Bank of Italy offers annually in its Directorate General for Economics, Statistics and Research in Rome. The fellowships last twelve months, renewable for another twelve, and provide fellows with a monthly stipend of €4,000 before tax. The Bank of Italy participates to the European Job Market for Economists.
Winners carry out the research project they propose in one of the fields listed in the notice of competition. When the project is concluded, the fellows are invited to take part in an assessment for a permanent position with the Bank at the entry level of the managerial career stream.
