The Bank of England – PhD Internships

The Bank of England – PhD Internships

Deadline: 31st January, 2022

Location: UK

Duration: 12 weeks

Summary: The Bank of England is the central bank of the United Kingdom. Sometimes known as the “Old Lady” of Threadneedle Street, the Bank was founded in 1694 with a founding charter that stated its purpose was to “promote the public good and benefit of our people”. If you’re at an early stage in your career there are many ways to become part of the Bank. We offer everything from internships to PhD programmes, across almost every area of our work. They’re all designed to give people the best start to their careers with us.

Details: The Bank of England PhD Internship Programme offers an invaluable opportunity to experience economic analysis, policy, and research at the highest level at a leading central bank. Our research agenda is designed to address the fundamental issues facing central banks today, and we offer a unique experience for researchers interested in these questions as we house monetary, macroprudential, and microprudential policy functions under one roof. We are looking for PhD students who are enthusiastic about contributing to our research agenda, and to help shape the Bank’s policies in the years ahead.

As a PhD intern you will have the opportunity to work on a research project with Bank of England economists from one of a variety of divisions, spanning monetary analysis, financial stability, international economics, prudential policy, supervision, risk management, and financial markets. You will work on a research topic of live interest to the Bank. While your exact research topic will be at the discretion of the Bank, we will seek to involve you in its design. Internships typically last for 12 weeks. And although most interns come to the Bank over the summer, we are flexible about the timing of the internship.

  • Currently studying for a PhD in any subject relevant to central bank policymaking


  • We will offer you a daily rate of £100 per day and pro rata holiday entitlement, based on 25 days per annum. If you don’t live in London then you’ll also receive an accommodation allowance of £100 per week during your stay. If you’re from overseas, you will be reimbursed for an economy class return flight to London.


We are looking for PhD students with a desire to carry out innovative, policy-relevant research, contribute to our research agenda and help shape the Bank’s policies in the years ahead. If that’s you, why not apply to experience working within our research community?
