This is an exciting time to join the Faculty of Management and Law at the University of Bradford. As a leader in teaching, research and knowledge exchange, we have more than 50 years’ experience of pushing the boundaries, regionally, nationally and internationally. We are proud to have ‘triple accreditation’ from the three leading international bodies, AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. We perform well in the Financial Times (FT) rankings and continue to build on our research strengths in readiness for REF 2020. Our activities cover a full spectrum of business disciplines as evidenced through our academic programmes at UG, PGT and PGR. We teach undergraduate, masters and doctoral students, deliver executive education and consultancy and create new knowledge through our research. We are passionate about Making Knowledge Work.

The University of Bradford is a technology university with great strengths. Our ambition is to build on our heritage and areas of strength, with a vision to be a world leader in: 
 (a) the creation of knowledge through fundamental and applied research;
 (b) the dissemination of knowledge by teaching students from all backgrounds; 
 (c) the application of knowledge for the prosperity and well-being of people. 

The School of Management has a strong reputation around Accounting, Finance and Economics, and is seeking to develop this further with the appointment of a Lecturer in Economics, specifically with experience in micro economics, financial economics/econometrics, and/or behavioural economics. The successful candidate will be expected to lead and contribute to the development and direction of economics programmes at UG, MSc and MBA levels, as appropriate. We are especially interested in those wishing to develop their knowledge and experience of delivering a digital learning experience through our Virtual Learning Experience. The successful individual(s) will be expected to have a research track record at 3* journal level and continue to be research active with some grant capture activity and ambition. The post holder will be expected to work closely with established partners and contribute towards Executive Education where necessary. This role is aligned with the University Strategy that promotes the development of international academic partnerships, developing and expanding commercial links to support our mission, vision and values. Therefore, the ability to persuade, influence, motivate and establish credibility with a wide range of stakeholders is essential.
