The College proposes to appoint a stipendiary lecturer in Economics from 1 September 2021 to teach undergraduates for an average of four contact hours a week to cover a period of maternity leave.

The person appointed will be expected to teach undergraduates, foundation year students, and visiting students for an average of four hours per week during Full Term. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience relevant to our areas of particular teaching need. These are the Prelims (first year) paper in Microeconomics and the Foundation Year papers in Economics and Maths for PPE.

In addition to teaching, the lecturer will be expected to help, as needed, with related administrative duties. This will include the setting and marking of collections (termly college examinations), and involvement in the admissions processes for undergraduates and Foundation Year students. This may include interviewing undergraduate candidates for Economics joint schools in December and will include interviewing Foundation Year candidates at the end of March.

The lecturer will act as Personal Tutor for some of the PPE and E&M students in College and may act as College Advisor to graduate students. The appointee would be expected to help cover the pastoral duties of the Tutors in Economics during any period of leave.

The lecturer will be paid on the stipendiary lecturers’ scale (£9,170 to £10,314 for 4 hours at current rates), with entitlement to join USS and with entitlement to some meals without charge during University terms.

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 30th July 2021.
