Summer research graduate programme
This programme is aimed at highly promising PhD students who have completed their coursework and are in the dissertation stage of their studies in economics, finance, statistics, mathematics or another related field.
About the programme
Research graduates will have the opportunity to visit the ECB's Directorate General Research for three months during the summer, carry out research and learn about the day-to-day work of the Directorate General.
Female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply in order to enhance the diversity of the workforce at the ECB.
Applications for the Summer Graduate Research Programme open at the end of each calendar year, with the closing date around mid-January of the following year. For more information on the programme, please contact SRGP@ecb.europa.eu.
In particular, the participants in this programme are expected to contribute to the work of the Directorate General as follows:
- carry out research on a topic of relevance for the ECB (as outlined in the research proposal submitted when applying for the programme), under the supervision of a senior economist in the Directorate General;
- present the results of this research in a seminar at the end of the visit;
- interact with economists in the Directorate General and from across the ECB;
- become familiar with the working environment in the Directorate General and, more generally, with the ECB and its policy challenges.
