Job description

Faculty of Environment, Science & Economy

The Department of Economics at the University of Exeter Business School is seeking to recruit a fixed term Lecturer E &S.

This will be available on a two-year fixed term contract.

Main purpose of the job:

You will contribute to teaching in one or more of the disciplinary areas in the department, supervise student projects and dissertations and develop, implement, and promote innovative teaching practices.
