JOB DESCRIPTION

Work for the IMF. Work for the World.

 

** This position is being readvertised. Previous Candidates need not reapply. **

The International Monetary Fund (IMF)’s Monetary and Capital Markets Department (MCM) has an opening for a Financial Sector Expert/Senior Financial Sector Expert in its Global Financial Stability Analysis (GS) Division. This is a two-year contractual appointment, renewable for up to four years of cumulative contractual service, pending incumbent’s performance, budget availability, and continuous business need.

The key functions of the GS Division include: (1) analyzing and assessing structural developments in financial markets and institutions that have implications for global financial stability; (2) developing related policy recommendations as appropriate; (3) contributing to the Fund’s efforts to further develop an early warning framework for detecting risks to global financial stability; and (4) contributing to bilateral and multilateral surveillance review work.

The successful candidate will work as part of a team conducting multilateral surveillance of mature and emerging financial markets and the international financial system. This will involve the identification of sources of risks and vulnerabilities in the major financial markets, and the analysis of policy implications related to ongoing changes in the structure of those markets. The successful candidate will contribute to in-depth research and analysis of systemic financial issues as well as to reports on current developments, including through the IMF’s flagship publication, the semi-annual Global Financial Stability Report (GFSR). She/He will be expected to participate in international capital markets or other IMF missions (including Article IV consultations and FSAPs), and internal and external seminars and conferences.

Qualifications

In addition to the qualifications set forth, the successful candidate should possess an advanced university degree (Ph.D. strongly preferred) in economics, finance, or a related field with minimum of 4 years of relevant experience in financial/macro-financial issues.

She/He should have strong econometric and/or modelling skills, a proven track record of high-quality research on macro-financial issues, and the ability to explain financial topics in clear terms to a non-technical audience.

An ability to produce high-quality work under tight deadlines, work independently as well as in teams, and apply innovative thinking and technical skills to analyze macro-financial issues are essential. A premium is put on clear written and oral presentation skills, as well as strong organization and leadership skills.

This is a two-year contractual appointment, renewable for up to four years of cumulative contractual service, pending incumbent’s performance, budget availability, and continuous business need.
