Maternity Cover, Fixed Term for up to 12 months

The Faculty of Business and Law (FBL) is seeking to recruit an innovative economist to join our Economics, International Relations and Development Subject Group.

The Faculty continues to grow in both home and overseas student recruitment targets and international, enterprise and research income and is currently recruiting for a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer to cover for a member of staff on maternity leave. The Faculty currently offers single and Joint Honours Economics degree programmes at undergraduate level along with an MSc in Economics, a MA in Political Economics and a MA in Business Economics.

You will have an Undergraduate degree and Master’s degree in a relevant subject, or equivalent professional qualification. In addition, you will be able to demonstrate specialism(s) in Quantitative methods, Business Economics and Microeconomics. Additionally, we would hope the post holder could contribute to the teaching of modules which adopt a pluralist approach to economics.

It is likely that the post will involve collaboration with international partners and/or international travel as the Faculty delivers a number of both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in locations such as China and Myanmar. In addition to teaching excellence, you will be expected to make a significant contribution in at least two of the following:

  • corporate/executive education,
  • overseas development and delivery,
  • distance learning development and delivery,
  • applied research,
  • consultancy,
  • business development.

In return we offer a pleasant, supportive working environment and considerable opportunity for personal growth and development. Moreover, you will be part of a continuing success story and will share in the accolades that follow.

For an informal discussion contact Marco Gundermann, Subject Leader, on marco.gundermann@northampton.ac.uk

Interview Date: Wednesday 19 June 2019

The University of Northampton’s focus on a personalised learning experience for our students was recently cited by HEFCE as a reason for our Gold award in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017. To augment this approach further we have adopted an ‘Active Blended Learning’ (ABL) approach which places greater emphasis on student-centred activities that support the development of subject knowledge, understanding, independent learning and digital fluency. Successful candidates for academic posts at the University of Northampton will be expected to adopt ABL as standard in their teaching practice.

This is an exciting time to join our University following our relocation in September 2018 to a new purpose-built, town-centre campus designed to adapt to 21st century teaching and the ABL model. We are looking to recruit individuals who share our passion for innovation, creativity and social impact and who will play a key role as we realise our ambition of transforming lives for the better and inspiring positive change.

The University of Northampton is one of only two Ashoka U Changemaker Campuses in the UK, and in 2017 was awarded the Social Enterprise Gold Mark, an independent guarantee that we have proven to our employees, students and stakeholders that we are committed to continuous improvement across our business in order to consistently deliver a positive impact on people and planet.

All candidates will be asked to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK at interview.

The University of Northampton as an employer strives to achieve diversity among its staff which reflects the communities it serves.
