Resident scholars are selected from the top academic and policy institutions in fields related to the Bank’s broad policy interests. The scholars pursue their own research while providing intellectual leadership by advising and collaborating with our staff of more than sixty economists. They present their own work at Research Group seminars and attend presentations by others.
The resident scholars also work closely with the director of research, and have the opportunity to contribute to the Bank's main policymaking discussions on topics such as monetary policy and macroeconomics, international economics, banking supervision and regulation, capital markets, financial stability, and applied microeconomics with an emphasis on regional and national issues.
The program complements our Visiting Scholars Program
, in which economists from major research institutions present their own work and make themselves available to discuss our staff's current research.
