We have a full time, permanent position available to join our diverse and growing team of economists at UWE Bristol in the role of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Economics.
UWE Economics is a pluralist group of economists representing a variety of schools of thought across post-Keynesian, institutional, ecological, political economy, feminist and gender economics, data sciences, regional studies and economic geography. Fostering critical thinking and pluralism are guiding principles of the four undergraduate degrees in BA Economics, BSC Economics, BSc Banking and Finance, and BA Business Management and Economics. UWE Economics is research-active in both theoretical and policy research across diverse topics including critical macro-finance, industrialisation, migration, sustainability, labour, history of economic thought as well as data sciences and economics education.
The Accounting, Economics and Finance department host the ONS Secure Research Service regional access hub and the College of Business and Law host the UWE Big Data Lab. Academic staff and students also engage with initiatives such as ‘rethinking’, ‘reteaching’, and decolonising economics but are also active in charities, activism, policy work, local community initiatives, placements, and consultancy.
UWE academic career progression is based on performance in three pathways: learning and teaching, research with impact, and knowledge exchange and engagement. Successful candidates will be encouraged to enhance their personal career development and take advantage of the various staff development opportunities available.
With recent successes in research outputs, funding and staff and student recruitment, UWE Economics is seeking to grow the group size to reinforce our research-led pluralist curriculum. We are looking for someone who already is, or has the potential to be, an inspirational pluralist researcher and educator.
You will be keen to shape the future of heterodox economics research debates and have a desire to be involved in shaping the minds of future critical thinkers. You should be able to engage across a range of our core areas of teaching and research. Examples of areas of expertise sought include critical microeconomics, ecological/environmental economics, banking and finance, history of economic thought, economic history and economic reasoning, political economy, econometrics and quantitative methods, qualitative research methods, and development economics.
