IMF Fellowship Program

IMF Fellowship Program

Washington, DC - September 4, 2012

Call for Applications

The IMF invites applications for its Fellowship Program for 2013–14. The program aims to support policy-relevant research of interest to the international financial community.

IMF Fellows will spend the year working on mutually agreed topics that are relevant to the work of the IMF. While hosted by the Research Department, Fellows will also be expected to interact with staff in other departments of the IMF. The work produced over the year can be disseminated through IMF Working Papers and other channels.

The IMF provides a unique environment for researchers interested in working on macroeconomic and financial issues given its close monitoring of economic developments around the world, its access to information, and the presence of a large, knowledgeable, professional staff with whom to interact. Salary and other benefits are competitive, and include allowances for relocation and conference travel.

Fellows will be chosen through a competitive application process. Applicants are expected to have a substantial publication record in leading journals and a strong interest in the policy-relevant work conducted at the IMF.

Applications should be sent no later than November 30, 2012 to and should consist of a CV, a 1–2 page outline of the proposed research project(s) to be carried out while at the IMF, and links to 1–2 research papers. The selection of 2013-14 Fellows will be announced by the end of February 2013.

The IMF Fellowship Program was launched in 2011. The 2012-13 fellowship recipients are Olivier Coibion, Chris Erceg, and Sebnem Kalemli-Ozcan.
