Regular research visitors
DG Research regularly seeks applications from leading senior economists and researchers to act as regular research visitors. They act as academic mentors to DG/R staff and as advisers to DG/R management.
Successful candidates are offered a service contract as a consultant to DG/R and are associated with one or more of its teams in accordance with their main research areas.
Research visitors are expected to visit the ECB at regular intervals over a prolonged period (two to four years). During their visits and in their areas of competence, they:
- interact with ECB economists, providing them with comments on their research projects, including active participation in relevant internal seminars at the ECB;
- provide guidance to DG/R economists on research projects, including detailed advice on the relevant literature to consult and the most appropriate applicable research techniques;
- conduct joint projects with DG/R staff on priority issues;
- offer advice to DG/R management on its overall research programme;
- assist DG/R management in selecting and evaluating research projects and programmes.
Research visitors are contracted following a procurement procedure in accordance with the DECISION OF THE EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK of 3 July 2007 laying down the Rules on Procurement
(ECB/2007/5) (2007/497/EC). For more information, please contact Oreste Tristani.
