Germany's Merkel names new top economic adviser
Seibert praised Moeller as "a renowned economist with international experience who also has excellent knowledge of economic policy in the context of the European Union."
Merkel, the leader of Europe's biggest economy, had not permanently filled the position for four months despite the lingering European sovereign debt crisis.
Moeller, a former economist with the European Commission, replaces Jens Weidmann who left the chancellery in February to become the new president of Germany's central bank.
