Full Details

Working with us

The University of Oxford’s Department of Economics is one of the largest and most diverse groups of academic economists in Europe. We currently have a permanent faculty of 50, including 10 statutory (established) professors, and more than 30 early career researchers who are on fixed-term appointments of 3 or 4 years.

The research activity of the Department is broad-based, and we aim to produce first-class research outcomes across a range of areas, rather than specialising in particular sub-fields. Academics work within small and focused research groups, which provide an active and supportive environment for Department members to facilitate the development of high-quality research. Each group is convened by a senior member of the Department who is responsible for coordinating group activities, including regular workshops and seminars.

The Department’s seminar series is incredibly active, with up to 17 different seminars and workshops running each week. Seminars provide a platform for researchers to present their research and obtain valuable feedback, as well as an opportunity to discuss the latest high-quality research in their specialised areas. Distinguished researchers from outside Oxford also visit us on a weekly basis to present their work at our seminar series.



Each year, we advertise a range of different academic positions within the Department. Information about the specifications of roles that we typically advertise are available by following the links below:
