The Research Unit at Danmarks Nationalbank is looking for two student assistants, starting in September 2022.

The position 

You will work on research projects with economists in the Research Unit. Your tasks can include preparing large datasets, working with applied econometric methods and solving quantitative models. You will occasionally contribute to administrative tasks, such as maintaining and updating websites as well as organising seminars and conferences. 

Working hours will be either 15 or 18.5 hours per week. Some flexibility in hours will be required, as the workload is often unequally distributed throughout the week.  

Your profile 

You have a strong academic background in economics or finance. Ideally, you should be in the last year of a Bachelor's degree or in the first year of a Master's degree. 

You have basic knowledge of statistical or numerical programming languages (especially STATA, but also MATLAB, Python or R). You will need to be proficient in both English and Danish. Familiarity with microeconometric methods, as demonstrated by high grades in relevant courses, is a great advantage, as is prior experience in working with Statistics Denmark datasets. 

The Research Unit 

The Research Unit is a young, international team of PhD economists working on research topics in macroeconomics, finance, household finance and labour economics. It is well connected with academic institutions in Copenhagen. As part of the Monetary Policy Department, the Research Unit is closely involved in the economic policy debate inside the Danish Central bank. 

As a student assistant, you can also join the student assistants’ association of Danmarks Nationalbank and participate in social events throughout the year.
