MFM Summer Session for Young Scholars

June 18–22, 2017
Bretton Woods, New Hampshire

Applications are now being accepted for the Macro Financial Modeling Initiative's summer session. The program is designed for early-career professionals and doctoral students in economics and related fields who are interested in developing enhanced macroeconomic models with linkages to the financial sector. The program provides an opportunity to learn about, discuss, and advance work on macro models with financial sector linkages and related topics. 

The initiative's goal is to construct better, more comprehensive models for assessing systemic risk stemming from activities in the financial sector that can impact the economy. Emerging scholars can play an important role in that effort; this program engages them in that mission and provides access to methods, insights, expertise, and contacts that can enhance their efforts. 

The program is open to graduate students or early career economists conducting research in these areas: 

  • macroeconometric models and methods with financial sector constraints
  • software and tools that evaluate new macroeconomic models
  • methods of defining, measuring and monitoring systemic risk
  • macroprudential regulation
  • fiscal challenges from the public sector
  • the role of accounting in financial stability

Applications will be through Feb. 28, 2017; details and the online application form are available here

Individuals who attended the 2016 MFM Summer Session are not eligible to apply.
