    Lincoln, Mansfield, St Edmund Hall, Somerville and the Department of Economics are recruiting for Early Career Development Fellows in Economics.

    The Fellowships are intended to provide a structured development opportunity for exceptional candidates embarking on an academic career in Economics.

    St Edmund Hall, Lincoln and Somerville -1st October 2017

    The Fellow will teach undergraduate students and provide administration for the College, including assessment and interviewing for the annual admissions exercise. The Fellow will also provide teaching for the department and will mark examination scripts, but will not be expected to undertake other departmental administrative duties.

    The Fellow will also engage in research, with the intention of publishing in international journals. To support this, one term in the final year of the appointment will be designated as paid research leave.
