£41,526 to £49,553

The Department of Economics is looking for academics with an emerging or proven publication record and proven teaching ability in the areas of macroeconomics and/or finance, with a demonstrable interest in developing their research profile.

We are interested in hearing from you if you can bring insights and personal experiences that are complimentary to the existing strengths and backgrounds in the Department.

We particularly welcome scholars who:

  • Have demonstrable research leadership within your specialist area.
  • Have leadership qualities that can actively influence the direction of the Department and challenge the team.
  • Can bring a strategic approach to the Department in the development of research groups and institutes.

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 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.
  • Previous experience of working as a Lecturer of undergraduate and/or postgraduate students.

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 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.
