The Department of Economics wishes to appoint a fixed-term (8 months) full-time Lecturer (Teaching) in Economics to assist in the delivery of our undergraduate and graduate programmes. This will involve lecturing and delivering small-group tutorials, workshops and other support on undergraduate and postgraduate programs as well as assessment and examination duties as required. It may also involve Personal Tutoring and visits to students on work placement. 

The postholder will make a substantial contribution to the development and the delivery of key units in economics. As the Department moves towards a richer variety of learning and assessment practices involving online materials and delivery, the post holder will also have a substantial input in the design and implementation of such practices.

Whilst it is expected that teaching will be informed by research/professional expertise, there is no research component to this role. 

This is a full-time and fixed-term post (8 months at 36.5hrs per week).

Further information about the department and its programs can be obtained from its website (www.bath.ac.uk/departments/department-of-economics).

For informal enquiries please contact Dr Peter Postl: p.postl@bath.ac.uk
