Job overview

UWE is making strategic appointments to strengthen and expand its already high-performing subject groups. The Department of Accounting, Economics and Finance is therefore seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Economics and Finance.

This appointment is specifically designed to further enhance our delivery of research-informed curricula and areas of research strength.

Our colleagues promote pluralism in both teaching and research. Research specialisms include, among others, post-Keynesian and institutional perspectives, modern financial systems including shadow banking, financial markets, asset pricing, and corporate financial reporting.

Applicants will have:

• A postgraduate degree in Economics/Finance (or closely associated discipline), preferably a PhD (or PhD close to completion)
• A commitment to excellence in research/scholarly-informed teaching
• Evidence of, or potential for, excellence in Economics/Finance research
• The ability to inspire and engage students and communicate effectively with students and colleagues
• A willingness to work independently and as part of a team on both teaching and research

Other benefits, in addition to salary:

• a generous holiday allowance of 35 Days
• up to 12.5 bank holiday/closure days per year in addition;
• flexible working;
• excellent defined benefit pension schemes;
• option to participate in the cycle to work scheme;
• family friendly policies;
• onsite nursery at our Frenchay Campus;
• option to purchase childcare vouchers.

This post is based at our lively Frenchay campus where we have invested in the latest facilities and resources to give our students access to everything they need to succeed – with £200m being spent on new state-of-the-art learning spaces and accommodation between now and 2020 to enhance our offer even further. Frenchay campus is within close proximity to excellent motorway links and within walking distance of two train stations, making UWE Frenchay Campus the ideal place to work for those wishing to commute to Bristol.
