Job description

UWE is making strategic appointments to strengthen and expand its already high-performing subject groups. As such, the Department of Accounting, Economics and Finance is seeking to appoint a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Economics.

The focus of this role is to support the overall teaching delivery to achieve outstanding learning outcomes for our students and engaging in scholarly or professional activity to enhance the design and delivery of curriculum development.

The department promotes pluralism in economics research and teaching. We have people researching post-Keynesian, institutional, ecological as well as neoclassical economic perspectives. The Economics Group has adopted an ethos of relevant economists doing relevant economics and the Group’s ethos extends to our philosophy of teaching.

This appointment is specifically designed to reinforce the group’s ability to deliver a research-informed curriculum. In particular we seek applicants who already are, or have potential to be, inspirational researchers and teachers in the field of quantitative methods.

As well as being a passionate teacher who seeks to enable students to develop and become informed, practical economists, you should also have a strong academic research record, or potential to do so. Our programmes are academically challenging and vocationally relevant.

To succeed in this role it is expected that you will have:

  • A postgraduate degree in Economics (or closely associated discipline), preferably a PhD (or be close to completion)
  •  The ability to inspire and engage students
  • A commitment to excellence in research and scholarship-informed teaching
  • Evidence of excellence in research
  • An ability to communicate effectively with students and colleagues

An interest and ability to work independently and as part of a team on both teaching and research

If you would like an informal discussion, please contact Damian Whittard on +44(0)1173287140 or e-mail

In addition to progressive pay rates we offer a wide range of staff benefits which includes a holiday allowance of 35 days as well as up to 12.5 bank holiday/closure days per year, flexible working, excellent defined benefit pension schemes, employee assistance programme, retail discount scheme and a range of family friendly policies.

We also have a generous relocation package to support qualifying candidates in moving to the area.

UWE Bristol is an ambitious university. Together, our people are working hard to advance knowledge, inspire people and transform futures. We are looking for people with the skills and ambition to help us achieve those aims.

This post is based at our lively Frenchay campus where we have invested in the latest facilities and resources to give our students access to everything they need to succeed – with GBP 300m being spent on new state-of-the-art learning spaces and accommodation between now and 2020 to enhance our offer even further. Frenchay campus is within close proximity to excellent motorway links and within walking distance of two train stations, making UWE Frenchay Campus the ideal place to work for those wishing to commute to Bristol.

We are a well-established university, with over 30,000 students, 250,000 alumni and 3,600 staff. UWE Bristol is one of the largest providers of Higher Education in the South West. Recent successes include achieving 89% overall student satisfaction in the National Student Satisfaction survey in 2018, placing us as the top university in the South West and in 7th place nationally. We have also achieved TEF Gold status and the Guardian has now placed us in the Top 30 Universities in the UK.

We are committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity to create an inclusive working environment. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds who share our ambition to be a university recognised for the success and impact of our practice-oriented programmes; our strong industry networks and our inclusive global outlook.
