Join a unique British University in China. The University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) was the first Sino-foreign university to open its doors in China. This award winning campus offering a UK style education has grown to establish a student body of over 7,000 in just 12 years.

The School of Economics at UNNC was established in 2009. It currently offers a ‘BSc International Economics and Trade’ and comprises 12 full-time members of academic staff. The student population is nearly 450, with a planned increase to 600 in the near future. The first cohort of Economics students graduated in July 2014; among them, more than 70 percent proceeded with further studies in well recognised universities of English-speaking countries (including the top ones). The next stage will see the School offer two new programmes of study, a ‘BSc Economics’ and an ‘MSc Economics’. Though relatively new to UNNC, The School of Economics has already developed an enviable reputation, thanks to its research orientation and growing ability to attract talented students and academic staff. The School also benefits from close integration with its sister schools in the UK and Malaysia, leading to intense collaboration in research and teaching activities.

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to developments that will enhance the School’s reputation as a recognised centre of excellence in research and teaching. In particular, the chair will be expected to conduct innovative research leading to publication in top-ranking economics journals on a sustained basis; to undertake a leading role in the development of the School’s research programmes, and to engage with colleagues at the University’s international campuses.

Applications are welcomed from candidates with interests in the area of Health Economics and Evidence-Based Health Care, as the University has pledged strong financial support for the development of this area over the next five years, including several permanent academic appointments.

Salary is negotiable depending on skills and experience and will be within the professorial range. In addition, an attractive package including accommodation allowance, travel allowance and insurance will be provided for international appointments.

The post will initially be offered on a fixed term contract with the University of Nottingham, Ningbo, China for a period of up to five years starting 1 March 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. This contract may be extended on an indefinite basis by mutual agreement.

Expressions of interest from existing teams of researchers, and the possibility of making linked appointments will also be considered.
