Multiple Appointments in Economics


The University of Queensland’s School of Economics is a leading provider of economics education in Australia, and ranks in the top 50 among Economics departments worldwide for its research.

Located on the St Lucia campus as part of the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law, the School is home to more than 2100 domestic and international students, 14 professional staff and 60 active teaching and research staff. Its accomplished scholars claim a large share of Australia’s economics honours, national teaching awards, competitive research grants, fellowships, publications and media coverage. The School also has an established research centre and an active seminar and visitor program, providing exposure to researchers from around the world.

The strategic priorities of our School are as follows:

  1. To empower our students to be the adaptable, game-changing and global leaders and citizens of the future.
  2. To strengthen our ability to lead in applied economics and to address big challenges, while preserving our areas of existing research leadership.
  3. To collaborate for positive change across the University and with external stakeholders, expanding our global reach.
  4. To develop our staff and to foster a culture of diversity, inclusion and respect.
