The Department of Economics is recognised both for its high research quality and the excellent employability of our graduates due to a long-established scheme of one-year industry placements. Our research covers all core areas of economics. It informs student learning and encourages the interaction between academia and wider society. We offer undergraduate degrees in Economics (and joint honours with Politics and Mathematics), as well as postgraduate degrees in Economics, Economics & Finance, and Applied Economics. We are consistently ranked among the top ten economics department in the country.

In order to maintain our reputation for teaching excellence and to further enhance the academic and employability skills of our students, we are keen to hire a teaching fellow to assist in the delivery of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. This will involve teaching small groups, lecturing and delivering support on undergraduate and postgraduate courses as well as administrative, assessment and exam duties as required. This post will support learning and teaching enhancement projects with a focus on employability and developing the work placement scheme

In this role you will prepare and deliver teaching of whole or parts of undergraduate or taught postgraduate units in the Department of Economics. This will include preparation of teaching material; delivery of lectures, seminars, tutorials, laboratory classes and group work; assessment and marking of essays, problem sets, coursework and dissertations. Occasionally, you may be required to teach for other Departments in the Faculty.

As the Department moves towards a richer variety of assessment practices involving online materials, you will have a substantial input in the design and implementation of such practices. Whilst it is essential that teaching will be informed by research/professional expertise, there is no research component to this role. 

This is a fixed term position to cover maternity with an expected expiry of 31 March 2020 (or the early return of the post holder).
