Visiting Research Program


The Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB) invites applications from external researchers (EU or Swiss nationals) for participation in a Visiting Research Program established by the OeNB’s Economic Analysis and Research Department. The purpose of this program is to enhance cooperation with members of academic and research institutions (preferably postdoc) who work in the fields of macroeconomics, international economics or financial economics and/or with a regional focus on Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe.

The OeNB offers a stimulating and professional research environment in close proximity to the policymaking process. Visiting researchers are expected to collaborate with the OeNB’s research staff on a prespecified topic and to participate actively in the department’s internal seminars and other research activities. They will be provided with accommodation on demand and will, as a rule, have access to the department’s computer resources. Their research output may be published in one of the department’s publication outlets or as an OeNB Working Paper. Research visits should ideally last between 3 and 6 months, but timing is flexible.

Applications (in English) should include

  • a curriculum vitae,
  • a research proposal that motivates and clearly describes the envisaged research project,
  • an indication of the period envisaged for the research visit, and
  • information on previous scientific work.

Applications for 2019 should be sent to Ms. Eva Gehringer-Wasserbauer by May 1, 2019.

Applicants will be notified of the jury’s decision by mid-June 2019. The following round of applications will close on November 1, 2019.
