Partially Remote (some attendance required)
The Bank of England PhD Internship Programme offers an invaluable opportunity to experience and contribute to economic analysis, policymaking and research, at a leading central bank. We are looking for PhD students from a diverse set of
backgrounds and with a desire to carry out innovative, policy-relevant research, contribute to our research agenda and help shape the Bank’s policies in the years ahead.
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. As a large central bank, we provide sizable computing resources and have unique, rich and novel datasets.
As a PhD intern you will be working on a research project of live interest to the Bank, with Bank of England researchers. While your exact research topic will be at the discretion of the Bank, we will seek to align it with your research interests and skills, and give you scope to shape the project. You will also be given an opportunity to present your research, either your own existing projects or your internship project, and engage with researchers and policymakers from around the Bank.
PhD students from any discipline are eligible to apply. Both the length and timing of the internships are flexible, though they are typically for 12 weeks over the summer.
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. 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.
We offer a daily rate of £103.85 per day and pro rata holiday entitlement, based on 25 days per annum. This role is open to flexible working patterns, which can include time working remotely, though you will need to be based in the UK during your internship. Candidates who do not live in London will also receive an accommodation allowance of £100 per week during their stay, and overseas candidates will be reimbursed for an economy‐class return flight to London.
