Economics, policy analysis and research

Where perspectives meet

Join the BIS and you'll have the chance to contribute to policy debates at a high level, as well as the opportunity to publish research on topics that matter.

You will explore research themes and analyse policy issues for the world's leading central banks and financial regulators, support discussions among central bank governors and other senior officials, or compile and disseminate key data sets on the global financial system. Whatever your role, you'll work alongside colleagues who are experts in their field, with the possibility of interacting with the Bank's senior managers, as well as monetary policymakers, regulators and academics.

PhD Fellowship programme
