P.W.S. Andrews and Elizabeth Brunner Chair in Industrial Economics

Lancaster University - Economics

The early years of the Economics Department at Lancaster were strongly influenced by PWS Andrews and Elizabeth Brunner, two distinguished contributors to the study of empirical and theoretical aspects of pricing and competition.

In view of the enduring significance of the issues identified by Andrews and Brunner, the Department now wishes to establish a Chair to commemorate and advance their contribution. In particular it seeks to appoint an individual to carry out innovative research in pricing, competition and cognate areas of economic theory.  It is assumed that this work will be carried out using the most modern tools of Industrial Organization, including game-theoretic analysis and/or econometrics, so that the work will be appropriate for publication in leading general and field journals in Economics.

You will be supported by an annual post-doctoral research fellow, the M.J. Dormer Fellow, for the first five years of the appointment.

The Department of Economics is part of the Lancaster University Management School (LUMS). LUMS is a world-ranked international business school which has topped the UK research rankings for nearly two decades. The Department of Economics is one of the largest in the School with over forty faculty members and has strong links across disciplines within the School and beyond.

This is a full time indefinite Post.
