The Department of Economics is committed to providing university education for life-long mental development through undergraduate, postgraduate, adult/continuing and executive/professional learning.Today it is one of the largest departments in the University on the basis of its established reputation for innovation, academic standards and student-focus of its programmes of study, including for academic and practitioner-oriented doctoral programmes.The teaching of the Department is organised around three strategic groups: Business Economics, Financial Economics and Health & Evaluation Economics. All academic members participate in the provision of general modules/programmes, as well as those in their area of speciality, and each group has designated responsibilities for delivering particular aspects of the comprehensive range of Empirical Research Methods provided by the Department.

The Department is positioned for embarking on another phase of development and has recently begun a two-stage recruitment process at the professorial/senior level to shape its strategic direction for the next decade.It now wishes to strengthen its teaching capabilities in all types and at all levels in each of the three groups above.It invites applications from highly motivated candidates with relevant postgraduate qualification, experience of, and proven ability for, lecturing at university level, demonstrated potential and commitment for independent scholarly research and publication, and ability to contribute effectively to academic management of the Department.
