The Faculty of Business and Law (FBL) is seeking to recruit an innovative economist to join our Economics, International Relations and Development Subject Group.
The Faculty continues to grow in both home and overseas student recruitment targets and international, enterprise and research income and is currently recruiting for a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer to cover for a member of staff on maternity leave. The Faculty currently offers single and Joint Honours Economics degree programmes at undergraduate level along with an MSc in Economics, a MA in Political Economics and a MA in Business Economics.
You will have an Undergraduate degree and Master’s degree in a relevant subject, or equivalent professional qualification. In addition, you will be able to demonstrate specialism(s) in Quantitative methods, Business Economics and Microeconomics. Additionally, we would hope the post holder could contribute to the teaching of modules which adopt a pluralist approach to economics.
It is likely that the post will involve collaboration with international partners and/or international travel as the Faculty delivers a number of both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in locations such as China and Myanmar. In addition to teaching excellence, you will be expected to make a significant contribution in at least two of the following:
- corporate/executive education,
- overseas development and delivery,
- distance learning development and delivery,
- applied research,
- business development.
In return we offer a pleasant, supportive working environment and considerable opportunity for personal growth and development. Moreover, you will be part of a continuing success story and will share in the accolades that follow.

The University of Northampton’s focus on a personalised learning experience for our students was recently cited by HEFCE as a reason for our Gold award in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017. To augment this approach further we have adopted an ‘Active Blended Learning’ (ABL) approach which places greater emphasis on student-centred activities that support the development of subject knowledge, understanding, independent learning and digital fluency. Successful candidates for academic posts at the University of Northampton will be expected to adopt ABL as standard in their teaching practice.
