Summary of Role

There has never been a better time to join Birmingham Business School – a triple accredited Business School at the heart of an institution with one of the most compelling and ambitious agendas in Higher Education.

This is an important time in our development. Benefitting from a significant multimillion pound investment, we are now seeking to extend our community of internationally recognised researchers and educators.  We are seeking outstanding individuals to appoint as Lecturers in Economics, and particularly welcome applications from candidates specialising in the areas of econometrics, data science and economics, behavioural economics, environmental economics and public economics. We are happy to discuss flexible working.

As academic members of the Economics Department, which is part of the Birmingham Business School, you will be expected to contribute to the Department’s whole range of research, teaching and administration.

Research involves initiating, creating and disseminating knowledge. It also involves securing the funding required for research and can involve public engagement, as well as pursuing research applications and societal impact.

Teaching is likely to include a substantial contribution to: (a) the development, management, and delivery of teaching and assessment with the aim of enhancing student learning; and (b) enhancement of the student experience. The role will typically also involve collaborating with others, including: (a) providing expert advice to staff and students, (b) supervising and examining PhD students, and (c) developing and advising others on learning and teaching tasks and methods.

Administration is likely to involve both contributions within the School and contributions to the wider College and University. This may include developing and making substantial contributions to knowledge transfer, enterprise, business engagement, public engagement, widening participation, schools outreach, or similar activities at School level or further within the University.

Person specification (Lecturer):

  • Normally, a higher degree relevant to the research/teaching area (usually PhD) or equivalent qualifications
  • Significant research experience and scholarship
  • Evidence of the ability to attract PhD students, to secure external grants from research councils, academic charities or industries, or to consult and work with industry is desirable. A demonstrated ability to balance long-term fundamental research with short-term applied projects would be beneficial
