PNG - 24.1 kb

The Macroeconomic Risk Chair invites applications for the Visiting Scholar Programme in the areas of interest for the chair, i.e. macroeconomic risk, business cycles, growth, fiscal and monetary policy.

Visits take place between September 1 and December 15, or between January 15 and June 30. A rolling admission will take place every month based on the applications received.

Visits usually last one to two weeks, although longer periods are also possible. We expect the Visiting Scholars to stay with the Macro Group at PSE for the duration of their visit.

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Economics at the time of applying and be active researchers.

Funding and accommodation
We reimburse a single round-trip economy class ticket to Paris. We offer a remuneration intended to cover accommodation and food expenses. For visitors who cannot accept remuneration from the Macroeconomic Risk Chair, these arrangements are negotiable, for example, we can instead cover the accommodation costs directly.

Relationship with the Macro Group at PSE
We encourage Visiting Scholars to participate fully in the research life of the Macro Group at PSE, for example by attending the research seminars at PSE and other events related to research. We expect Visiting Scholars to present their own work in a seminar whilst they are visiting the Macro Group at PSE, as well as spending office hours with PSE faculty and PhD students.

Application instructions
All applications should be submitted by email at macro at, with the object: Visiting Scholar Programme Chair SCOR at PSE. Please submit a CV and a research proposal (up to 2 pages).
