The Swedish House of Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics (SHoF) is accepting applications for a full-time pre-doctoral research analyst position. Candidates would ideally be able to start working as soon as possible and would work for between one and two years before applying to graduate school in Finance, Economics or another social science.

SHoF is Sweden’s national research center in financial economics and is an internationally top ranked academic department. For more information about SHoF, please visit our website

As a research analyst, you will be working on cutting-edge research projects in such areas of finance as banking, household finance, behavioral finance, corporate finance, and asset pricing finance. You will work in close contact with the researchers at SHoF and the SSE Finance Department. The program serves as an ideal bridge between university and PhD program for students interested in empirical finance research. Our previous research analysts are either enrolled in top PhD programs in Europe and US or working in the industry as data scientists and financial analysts.

Applicants should be completing (or have recently completed) a Master’s degree and have strong quantitative skills. Candidates need not to have Economics/Finance degree, but you should have a strong interest in financial research and some experience with finance. Ideally you should be familiar with Stata, Matlab, R or other statistical software. Excellent spoken and written English is a requirement.

SHoF is committed to a balanced gender distribution and values a variety of backgrounds and experiences among our employees. We therefore welcome all applicants regardless of their country of origin, gender, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, disability, sexual orientation, age, or religion or other beliefs.
