Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in Economics? Do you have an excellent research record and a potential to establish an international reputation? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

We are looking for an outstanding candidate to join the Economics Division of Leeds University Business School during an exciting phase in our development. Our highly popular and vibrant teaching programmes are expanding whilst our research activities continue to grow. The Division’s strong research focus supports our leadership and membership of several high-profile, large-scale research initiatives including projects in the areas of financialisation, infrastructure provision, and the Cities research theme launched by the University of Leeds. The Division is connected via teaching and research to other faculties at the University of Leeds and is pursuing a distinctive and high-impact interdisciplinary agenda.

With an active research agenda, you will have experience of collaborative work, the ability to obtain research funding and be able to contribute to the research of the Division. You will also be an engaging and effective teacher, able to contribute modules in the core theoretical and applied areas of economics and to attract and supervise PhD students successfully. The ability to contribute in the areas of the Division’s large-scale projects and impact initiatives would also be welcomed.

Though open to candidates with interests in all area of Economics, we would particularly welcome applicants with expertise in the areas of applied econometrics and/or business economics.
