With over 40 members from more than 15 countries, the School of Economics at the University of Surrey (https://www.surrey.ac.uk/school-economics) enjoys a strong reputation for research and teaching in Economics, built upon a commitment to high quality, rigorously founded applied and theoretical research, often of direct policy significance. We have recently invested heavily to recruit staff whose innovative work is having a large impact on international research agendas, as evidenced by ranking 10th for Economics in the recent research assessment exercise (REF2021).
To support our growth strategy, we would like to make at least one appointment at Lecturer (Assistant Professor) or Senior Lecturer level in Applied Microeconomics, from September 2024. As a new academic staff member, you’ll have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the intellectual life of the School of Economics. You will be fully supported to extend your high-quality research agenda and build research networks, both within the school and beyond it. As appropriate, you will be encouraged to participate in externally funded collaborative research projects. Through your teaching you’ll have the opportunity to play a key role in the leadership, engagement and satisfaction of our student population at any level, including the opportunity to mentor and support our outstanding MSc and PhD students.
At Surrey, we are committed to providing an inclusive environment that offers equitable opportunities for all, in the pursuit of Surrey’s vision to be a leading global University. We work together to create a truly inclusive culture. We place great value on diversity and welcome applicants from all backgrounds. We are seeking to increase the diversity within our community and would particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups, such as women, people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups and people with disabilities. Appointments will always be made on merit.
We encourage applications from candidates from any subfield of Applied Microeconomics. Please submit a cover letter, indicating how your profile would enhance the School’s research and teaching environment, a copy of your CV, a job market paper, a research statement, a teaching statement, and three letters of reference. Applicants will be shortlisted for first-round remote interviews around the time of the EEA job market 11-14 December 2023.
Informal enquires should be directed in the first instance to Professor Maurizio Zanardi, Head of School of Economics, via email@example.com, or to Professor Jo Blanden, School of Economics, via firstname.lastname@example.org .
