The Department of Land Economy and Queens' College wish to appoint a Isaac Newton Trust Academic Career Development Fellow in Urban and Regional Economics with effect from 1 September 2024, for a period of three years. The Academic Career Development Fellow will carry out research in the Department of Land Economy and will teach and contribute to the administration and other activities of the Department and of Queens' College. They will be elected to a Bye-Fellowship at Queens' College.

As an Isaac Newton Trust Academic Career Development Fellow, you will have an opportunity to:

enjoy protected time for an independent research project;

be embedded in a Faculty research and teaching culture;

teach in Colleges in small groups;

to act as a College Director of Studies for students choosing to take papers in Land Economy;

teach undergraduate and/or Masters students in a Faculty setting;

be mentored by Faculty members in academic skills (teaching, research, publication, grant applications, academic administration).

The Academic Career Development Fellow will have teaching strengths in one or more central areas of urban and regional economics, with a preference for experience of using quantitative methods in research or teaching, including econometric methods, machine learning methods, geocomputational methods, and/or advanced survey methods.

Candidates should draw attention in their application to the full range of their teaching abilities.

The post is intended to provide an opportunity for someone at a relatively early stage in their academic career to develop teaching and administrative skills while also pursuing academic research. This will assist the Fellow to apply for future academic vacancies, and so develop an academic career.

The post is offered for a term of three years. The successful applicant will hold the degree of PhD or about to be awarded their PhD by the beginning of the appointment. The Career Development Fellow is likely to be in the early stages of their career, with (if applicable) typically less than three years experience post PhD/equivalent, exclusive of any career breaks.

The Academic Career Development Fellow will be expected to pursue a research project that can be completed within the three year period of the Fellowship. The Academic Career Development Fellow will be expected to publish, or have published, in their specialist field, to teach and examine undergraduates, and to supervise and examine MPhil postgraduate work.

The purpose of the Fellowship is to support and maintain the University's national and international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. The Fellow will develop an independent research profile, carrying out research at a similar level to that undertaken by lecturing staff and will provide substantial scope for originality, interpretation and presentation of results. The Fellow will also develop a portfolio of skills in teaching at undergraduate and taught postgraduate levels, including a mix of supervisions, seminars and lectures as part of their overall contribution to the Department. Through this, the Fellow contributes to the strength of research in relevant subject areas, and the delivery of teaching excellence in both Faculty and College settings.
