University of Exeter Business School
Lecturers (Assistant Professorships)/Senior Lecturers in Economics (Education and Research)
To strengthen further our activities in Economics, the University of Exeter Business School are seeking to make a number of appointments at the level of Lecturer in Economics (equivalent to Assistant Professorship) and Senior Lecturer in Economics. Applications are invited from academics in any area of economics, but we particularly welcome applications from candidates with research interests in any of the following research areas: Micro-econometrics, Macroeconomics, Public Finance, Political Economics and Experimental Economics (with emphasis on Field Experiments).
The University of Exeter is a member of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities and the Sunday Times University of the Year 2013. The result of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise confirmed Exeter's position as one of the UK's leading research-intensive universities. Every single subject submitted in that exercise included world-leading (4*) research.
The University of Exeter Business School is a leading part of the University of Exeter and is one of the UK's top schools, rated consistently in the Times/Sunday Times league tables as a top 10 Business School. In 2013, the School became one of the select few Business Schools worldwide to gain the prestigious EQUIS accreditation. The School has grown significantly over the last 5 years, and continues to be ambitious. We want to be recognised internationally for bringing together students, faculty and corporate partners to develop exceptionally able and employable graduates, and create distinctive research of the highest calibre and relevance. As part of achieving this aim, we are seeking to appoint a number of academics with international reputations for their inspirational teaching and world-leading research.
The Department of Economics is a key part of the Business School and so has grown considerably along with the School. The expansion of the Department is intended to consolidate and enhance its research standing both nationally and internationally. Members of the Department enjoy a high degree of collaboration and integration that facilitates the introduction of new members of staff into a strong research culture. The Department places the highest emphasis on producing top quality research and attracting external income.
Applicants for the Lectureships in Economics will hold, or be nearing completion of, a PhD. They will also possess an independent, high quality research programme that will strengthen and complement the existing strengths of the Business School.

Applicants for the Senior Lectureships should have a PhD in Economics or related discipline as well as sufficient knowledge of the subject area to develop teaching and research programmes. They will have published a number of high quality publications in leading international journals and be able to provide leadership and support in research, teaching and administrative duties.
