The Riksbank’s internships for PhD students
The Riksbank Research Division organises an internship program for PhD students in Economics, Finance or Statistics enrolled at Swedish or foreign universities. The selected interns spend a period of two months at the Riksbank – either at the Research Division or at a policy department – during the periods April to June or August to December.
The purpose of the internship program is to give PhD students an opportunity to interact with Riksbank researchers and other staff, and potentially initiate collaborations, while conducting research into issues broadly relevant to the Riksbank. Students should therefore have finished the first-year course work of their PhD programs and started working on their dissertation. Interns placed in the Research Division will work on their dissertation projects, while interns placed in a policy department may also be involved in directed research projects. Interns are expected to present their achievements in a seminar towards the end of their stay.
The application deadline is typically in February each year, and applications are submitted online on the page Current vacancies.
