The Bank of Finland's Research Unit invites applications for the Visiting Scholars Programme in the areas of interest for the Bank, i.e. macroeconomics, monetary policy and financial stability. 

We invite Visiting Scholars on a biannual basis. Fall 2020 visits will take place between August and December 2020. The deadline for Fall 2020 applications is May 24, 2020. Spring 2021 visits will take place between January and June 2021. The deadline for Spring 2021 applications is September 20, 2020. We do not accept applications for July due to holiday season.

Visits usually last one to three weeks, although longer periods are possible. We expect the Visiting Scholars to stay with the Research Unit for the entire duration of their visit.

We invite scholars from both academia and policy institutions, esp. central banks. Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Economics or Finance at the time of applying and be active researchers. We particularly encourage first-time applications. Preference will be given to applications that have the potential to develop into a long term collaboration with Bank’s staff.

Any inquiries should be sent to vp.research (at) The deadline for Fall 2020 applications is May 24, 2020.
