    The Directorate General of Economic Research of Banco de México, through its Summer Internship Program, aims to attract Ph.D. students in Economics and/or Finance in order to carry out research work in these fields.

    To be considered, candidates must submit the following documents: resume specifying current state of their Ph.D. studies; an academic recommendation letter from a professor familiar with the candidate’s research and/or academic performance (include name, telephone, and email address of the recommender); and a list of three research topics in which the candidate has a particular interest. Additionally, as support material, it is recommended to include any current or finish articles (e.g. a thesis chapter, coursework, a publication, etc.).

    The deadline for submission is April 15, 2017 although candidates will be selected on a rolling basis so early applications are encouraged. Selected candidates will be informed of the outcome beginning May 8, 2017. The program has a maximum duration of two months, and usually takes place between the months of June and August.

    Successful applicants will sign a professional service contract with Banco de México, with a maximum duration of two months. They will receive to this effect a maximum compensation of up to US$ 6,500.00, that will be paid under the conditions established by the Bank when a contract is signed. The referred amount includes US$ 2,500 per month for research work and up to US$ 1,500 for a round trip in economy class departing from an airport near the place where the candidate currently studies.

    Selected candidates must submit any documentation that is required from them by Banco de México. If the prevailing tax rules require it, candidates will have to be registered in the Federal Taxpayers Registry (RFC) of the Tax Administration Service (SAT) in Mexico. Taxes are calculated based on total paid amount (fees and airfare) and, if applicable, Banco de México will withhold what is required under applicable laws in Mexico.
