We will particularly welcome someone who can represent the Department in the wider University and promote and represent the University and the discipline nationally and internationally.

You will have:

  • An entrepreneurial approach to collaborative research. A culturally agile, dynamic style with a global mind-set who can work across boundaries whether this be geographical or disciplinary.
  • A relevant PhD (completed or close to completion, or equivalent qualifications / experience).
  • An ability to conduct high quality research output for publication in internationally renowned economics journals.
  • Proven ability to teach, ideally with a relevant teaching qualification.

The Department of Economics has an international reputation for practical and real-world economics. Our researchers advise government departments in the UK and internationally. We are home to the Institute for Economic Analysis of Decision-making (InstEAD) and part of the national Centre for Vocational Education Research (CVER).

We are one of the largest departments in the Faculty of Social Sciences with an ambition to grow further. We have a friendly, collegiate and culturally diverse team. We are an international department which currently comprises approximately 36 academics, 13 professional services staff, 30 PhD students as well as post-doctoral fellows and visiting academics.

We provide research-led economics teaching, exposing students to the latest developments in the discipline so they become critical thinkers, analytical problem solvers and independent researchers.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.

As an equal opportunities employer, we particularly welcome applications from women and from Black, Asian, Minority, Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds as they are currently underrepresented in this area. All appointments will be made on merit of skill and experience relative to the role.
