Aston Business School, located in the heart of Birmingham seeks to appoint a highly motivated, ambitious academic with the ability and interest in providing excellence in learning and teaching in the field of economics. 

The holder of this post will influence the future direction of the Economics, Finance and Entrepreneurship Department in the development of taught economics programmes at UG and PG level.  

There is a thriving teaching culture within the department that includes a National Teaching Fellow, multiple award-winning academics in learning and teaching as well as leading economics textbook authors. Members of the department are also extremely active in the Economics Network. Innovation in teaching plays a prominent part in our pedagogic activities and we lead the College wide A-GamE centre on the use of gamification in teaching. 

The usual teaching load for a post like this constitutes 4.5 modules across the academic year. We also anticipate that the appointed candidate will be able to demonstrate leadership in learning and teaching and be an innovative and reflective practitioner.  

Furthermore, the appointed academic will also be expected to take on programme directorship and supervise MSc and industrial placement students. 

We would also encourage any interested candidates to look at our department’s staff profiles to see if there are synergies in terms of teaching expertise and the possibility of conducting research in economics or pedagogy (https://research.aston.ac.uk/en/organisations/economics-finance-and-entrepreneurship).
