The University of Manchester seeks to appoint an outstanding individual who will enable The Global Development Institute to develop further its contribution to knowledge and research-led postgraduate teaching and research.

Applications are particularly encouraged from candidates whose work addresses the challenges of growth and distribution, but candidates with a strong research profile in any area of development economics (including both macro- and micro-economics) will be considered. The person appointed will be expected to pursue research in their areas of specialisation and play a leading role in developing GDI’s research in development economics, in collaboration with development economists in the School of Social Sciences and elsewhere within the University.
