DNB  PhD internship program (PhDIP) is directed toward PhD-students who are specializing within macroeconomics, econometrics, banking or finance.

Interns are expected to collaborate closely with other researchers at the DNB, with the explicit aim to pursue a project until publication in an international academic journal. Co-authorship with DNB staff is strongly encouraged.

Candidates should be advanced into their PhD-studies (ideally, third year onwards) and beyond the stage of PhD-courses. Selection for internship positions will be based on a research statement (max 2 pages), as well as CV and drafts of ongoing research. The research statement is important to evaluate that the research interests and the technical skills of the candidates are consistent with the research agenda of the DNB, that can be found here:

The research page of the DNB is here: 

Working papers and other publications from the DNB economists can be found here: 

DNB will reimburse travel expenses and offer a compensation.

Internships will normally last between 3 to 6 months and the starting date is flexible. Hence, this is an open call and applications will be screened on a continuous basis on a ‘first-in first-served’ basis, given the limit to the available budget. Candidates are strongly encouraged to apply well before the proposed starting date.
