We hope to be able to offer an exciting opportunity for professional development
Applicants should have a doctorate in economics. A publication record in peer-reviewed journals at the national and international level on entrepreneurship themes is expected, and where (and only where) evidence of it is strong, we will consider applicants whose PhD has not yet been formally awarded. Some experience with funded research and also with business contact will be seen as an advantage. Once appointed, an applicant will be expected to apply for research funding. Past experience of being a CI (or PI) on externally funded projects will therefore be considered an advantage.
In addition, applicants should be able to demonstrate effective and innovative teaching practice. Amongst others, a successful applicant will contribute to economics modules on undergraduate and postgraduate level.
For an informal discussion about this role contact Professor Tomasz Mickiewicz (Head of Economics, Finance & Entrepreneurship group) at email@example.com , or Professor Christos Ioanndis, Associate Dean, Aston Business School at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Provisional date for interviews for the shortlisted candidates will be 31st of May 2017.
Further particulars and application forms are available in alternative formats on request i.e. large print, Braille, tape or CD Rom.
