Free-thinking. Collaborative. Innovative. Kingston University is yours to inspire. As you cover colleagues on leave for a year, you will play a key role in the teaching of economics courses within a department committed to excellence in heterodox and orthodox economics. In particular, you will contribute to the development and delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and research in the areas of mathematical economics, macroeconomics, financial economics, or econometrics. At the same time, you will maintain a personal programme of research and scholarship and support the academic management of the Department.
You’ll bring a doctoral degree in a relevant discipline together with some experience of teaching in the higher education sector at undergraduate or postgraduate level. Evidence of strong research potential will be complemented by the ability to communicate effectively with a variety of different audiences. An ability to contribute to a pluralist economics curriculum is desirable, as would experience of successfully applying for external funding
