Economist Program 2007
The International Monetary Fund

Scholarship / Financial aid: undefined

Date: undefined

Deadline: February 28, 2007

Open to: see 'Qualifications'

Announcement follows

The IMF is seeking qualified candidates for the 2007 Economist Program.
The Economist Program is the "point of entry" for talented economists seeking an exciting career soon after completion of their graduate studies. Participants undertake challenging assignments and have the opportunity for specialized training while concurrently contributing to the IMF's work.

The application deadline for candidates studying in the U.S., Canada, and South America is November 30, 2006. Candidates studying in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and Asia may submit their application until February 28, 2007.

Summary of Duties and Responsibilities:

During the three-year program, participants are given two assignments, each lasting 18 months. One assignment is in an area department dealing with country-specific issues; the other is likely to be in a functional department dealing with fiscal, monetary, balance-of-payments, debt or other issues. Participants work closely with experienced members of the staff and are given considerable responsibility in carrying out operations-related analysis and research. In conjunction with their duties, participants normally take part in at least two missions (business trips) during each assignment period.


In order to be considered for the Economist Program, a candidate should:
be below the age of 33 when (s)he joins the staff (the average age on entry is 29);

possess a superior academic record;

have a good command of English;

show an interest in, and aptitude for, working in an international organization;

demonstrate strong quantitative and computer skills.

Educational Requirements:

Graduate-level training in macroeconomics or relevant fields, such as international economics, monetary economics, public finance, econometrics, labor economics, poverty issues or political economy. Typically, selected candidates either have a Ph.D. or will be completing their Ph.D. shortly after entering on duty. However, candidates with a master's degree in economics or a related field and relevant experience may also be considered.

To Apply:

Candidates meeting the qualifications are invited to apply online by February 28, 2007. Vacancy No. R06552A
