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.

To support these developments we are seeking to appoint an Associate Professor / Lecturer in Economics. You will have a strong commitment to undertaking high quality research and will be able to contribute excellent teaching to our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

You should have a strong academic profile evidenced by a track record of publications in refereed journals commensurate with a 3 or 4 star rating as defined by the REF or by metrics such as the Association of Business Schools journal quality list. With an active research agenda, you will have experience of collaborative work and the ability to obtain research funding. 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.

We are seeking applications from candidates with interests in any area of economics. Though open to all, we would welcome applications from those with interests in areas covered by research projects housed within the Economics Division and would also welcome applications from candidates with expertise in the areas of behavioural economics, business economics, and labour economics.
