Lecturer in Economics, School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London

The new ‘Lecturer in Economics’ post will add to the existing strengths SSEES has in Economics and Business. This post will take the number of permanent posts within this Programme to 9.
We welcome applications from all areas of economics and business, but particularly those that relate to our existing strengths. We are also interested in candidates whose work is strong in other policy related areas, in economic history, methodology and ideas, and in the comparative economics of emerging markets (e.g. Russia, Eastern Europe, China). We are strong in several areas of research conducted by our current permanent staff.
These include: microeconomics and applied macroeconomics (Dr Randolph Bruno); economic history, education and development (Dr Tomas Cvrcek); development and agricultural economics (Dr Elodie Douarin); econometrics and applied macroeconomics (Dr Julia Korosteleva); international trade (Dr Svetlana Makarova); FDI, migration (Dr Miriam Manchin); corporate finance (Dr Eugene Nivorozhkin); innovation studies and innovation policy (Prof. Slavo Radošević); and international macro and finance, European macroeconomic policy  (Dr Yuemei Ji).
In addition to conducting research, successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a commitment to learning, teaching and the student experience, as well as to academic administration and management. SSEES is particularly keen to strengthen its teaching provision in the following areas: macroeconomics and microeconomics; economic policy; international economics; business economics, quantitative methods/statistics and econometrics. Successful candidates may be asked to contribute to or lead core year one BA courses in macro- and microeconomics, taught to large numbers of students from diverse disciplines. Typical Lecturer loads in the Economics programmes involve 6-7 contact teaching hours per week, delivered during the two 10-week terms with examination duties undertaken in the third term.  Candidates are expected to be familiar with the SSEES student body and the BA/MA programmes in Economics and Business http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ssees/prospective-students
