Inequality, poverty and social justice are key issues in

 

the policy debate in many countries, with much renewed

 

interest over the last 1 1/2 decades, due to economic

 

internationalization, increased global competition, the

 

changing influence of labor market institutions and new

 

technologies. This workshop focuses on theoretical and

 

empirical research on inequality, poverty, and the labor

 

market. This includes: empirical research documenting

 

changes in inequality and poverty, and how this relates to

 

global trends; analysis of the determinants of inequality

 

and poverty and theoretical work on potential causes; the

 

inter-play between poverty and inequality on the one

 

hand, and institutions, anti-poverty policies,

 

technological change, and changing demands at the

 

workplace on the other. Further, there is an interest in

 

processes associated with (the causes of) poverty and

 

inequality, like unemployment and gender differences.

DE NEDERLANDSCHE BANK (DNB)

 

 

 

Economist/Econometrician combining PhD-research and

 

modeling/forecasting (4-year contract)

 

 

 

 

 

The Economics and Research Division of De Nederlandsche

 

Bank (DNB) has a vacancy for an economist or

 

econometrician, who spends 50 per cent of his or her time

 

working on a PhD thesis, while contributing to the economic

 

modeling and forecasting activities of DNB for the other 50

 

per cent. The PhD research should be relevant to DNB's main

 

fields of interest, be supervised by a university

 

professor, and comply with the usual high standards of

 

academic quality. The latter implies that the results of

 

the research can in principle be published in high-quality

 

peer-reviewed international journals. Without seeking to

 

exclude particular research themes beforehand, we have a

 

preference for research in the field of business cycle

 

analysis and research on macroeconomic topics such as

 

structural reforms and their influence on macroeconomic

 

performance and financial stability.

 

 

 

The modeling and forecasting work entails developing new,

 

and maintaining and using various types of macro models for

 

policy purposes. These models include a large scale

 

structural macroeconomic model, leading indicators models

 

for predicting (turning points in) output and inflation,

 

DSGE-models and models for analyzing financial stability.

 

Candidates will contribute to regular projection exercises

 

and to answering policy questions based on model

 

simulations.

 

 

 

 

 

MAIN ASPECTS OF THE POSITION:

 

 

 

Research:

 

- PhD research relevant to DNB's main fields of interest.

 

- Publishing in peer-reviewed high-quality international

 

journals.

 

- Being able to communicate the implications of research

 

results to policy makers and a broader audience in a

 

clear and non-technical fashion.

 

 

 

Modeling activities:

 

- Maintaining and developing (new) models for policy

 

analysis.

 

- Forecasting key economic variables and reporting the

 

results in memo's, articles and briefings to policy

 

makers and the public.

 

- Conducting model-based scenario analyses en macro-stress

 

tests (financial stability).

 

- Participating in national and international modeling

 

networks.

 

 

 

 

 

QUALIFICATIONS:

 

 

 

- Candidates have completed a Masters in economics or

 

econometrics with excellent grades.

 

- Candidates have a research plan for their PhD that is

 

accepted by the (envisaged) thesis supervisor.

 

- Excellent communication skills in English; excellent

 

presentational skills.

 

- Basic knowledge of the Dutch language is essential (i.e.

 

being able to understand written and spoken Dutch). We

 

offer excellent training facilities.

 

- Team worker and result-oriented.

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT THE ECONOMICS AND RESEARCH DIVISION OF DNB:

 

 

 

The division (in total 70 staff) consists of three

 

departments: Monetary policy, Economic policy and Research.

 

The position is located in the Research department.

 

 

 

Location: Amsterdam
