The Economics Subject Group, part of the Department of Accounting, Economics and Finance, is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Economics on a fixed term basis for 1 year, or the earlier return of the post holder.

The department promotes pluralism in economics education and research.

You will have

  • A good first degree in economics (or closely associated discipline)
