Early Career Development Fellowship in Economics (two posts)
DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS in association with Lincoln College and Somerville College
Grade 7: Salary in the range £31,076 - £36,001 p.a.
Full-time and fixed-term for four years from 1 October 2017.
Lincoln College, Somerville College, and the Department of Economics are recruiting for two Career Development Fellows in Economics; a specialist in macroeconomics (Lincoln) and a specialist in microeconomics (Somerville). The fellowships are intended to provide a structured development opportunity for exceptional candidates embarking on an academic career in Economics. The fellows will receive mentoring from a senior academic staff member, and will be offered a carefully tailored package of professional development.
The posts are full-time and are fixed-term for the period: 1 October 2017 to 31 September 2021.
The fellows will teach undergraduate students and provide administration for the college, including assessment and interviewing for the annual admissions exercise. The fellows will also provide teaching for the department and will mark examination scripts, but will not be expected to undertake other departmental administrative duties. The fellows will also engage in research, with the intention of publishing in international journals. To support this, one term in the final year of the appointment will be designated as paid research leave.
Candidates should normally have obtained a PhD or equivalent by the 31 December 2017, and should not normally have completed a PhD or equivalent earlier than 1 October 2012 (with the exception of career breaks, e.g. for maternity/paternity leave). A high level of academic achievement, appropriate to the stage of the candidate’s career, is essential. Candidates will also have the ability, or the potential, to provide excellent tutorial and small group teaching. Previous experience of teaching would be an advantage.
Your application will be considered by a joint panel consisting of members of the colleges and the department. The closing date for applications is (GMT) 12.00 noon on 8 May 2017. Applications received after the closing date will not be accepted.
Interviews are scheduled to be held in late May 2017.
Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
