University of Surrey - School of Economics

The University of Surrey is a global university with a world-class research profile and an enterprising spirit. Inventive and forward-thinking, its heritage shows a recurring theme of going its own way, doing things differently – and achieving notable results.  Furthermore, the University of Surrey regularly ranks as one of the top UK universities in different league tables.

The School of Economics at Surrey (www.surrey.ac.uk/economics) has a reputation for research and teaching in economics, built upon a commitment to high quality, rigorously founded applied and theoretical work, often of direct policy significance. The School enjoys a strong profile in research and teaching, exemplified by a successful 2014 REF and recent NSS scores. We have recently invested heavily to recruit staff whose innovative work is having a large impact on international research agendas.

As part of an exciting strategic initiative to consolidate the School’s position as a top Economics department in the UK, we are looking to make a number of appointments at the Lecturer and Senior Lecturer level. Candidates should hold a relevant PhD, or be working towards a doctoral degree, and should be able to demonstrate internationally recognised research, and the potential to engage in bidding for external funding. We are particularly interested in Applied Micro, Applied Macro, Development, Finance and Environmental Economics candidates, but strong applications from other fields are also encouraged to apply.

In return we can offer a competitive remuneration package, which includes relocation assistance where appropriate, the latest teaching facilities, and access to a variety of staff development opportunities.

Informal enquires should be directed in the first instance to Professor Joao Santos Silva, Head of School via email at jmcss@surrey.ac.uk containing "Surrey appointments 2017/18” in the subject line.
