Job Opportunities

The department has around 50 members of established academic staff – Professors and Associate Professors of Economics – and approximately 20 Postdoctoral and Early Career Fellows.  We have an Administrative Team of 18, providing support for research and teaching, HR, finance and communications. Opportunities come up regularly in all three categories.

Forthcoming opportunities

  • Nuffield Postdoctoral Research Fellowships: Two or more are advertised every September and October, with interviews taking place at the end of October or in November.
  • Associate Professorships: Between two and five are advertised each year in October and November. These positions are usually associated with a Tutorial Fellowship in one of the colleges. In 2019-20 we expect that interviews will take place in January.
  • Statutory Professorships: We are currently searching for candidates for these senior academic posts. We expect several vacancies to arise soon.

mAKING Contact

We are always interested in hearing from potential candidates for academic or administrative roles at all levels. If you are interested in joining the department, we encourage you to get in touch and send a copy of your CV to personnel@economics.ox.ac.uk.

Our Academic Search Group is searching actively throughout the year for potential applicants for Associate Professorships, and can arrange exploratory visits to the department, or to meet applicants at the European Job Market meeting at Rotterdam in December 2019.  Along with many other European universities, Oxford is focusing on interviewing only at the European Job Market in Rotterdam. If you would like to contact informally the Academic Search Group, please email Hamish Low at academic.search@economics.ox.ac.uk, attaching a copy of your CV. A formal advert will be released in October with a deadline at the end of November.

There are ongoing vacancies at the Statutory Professor level. If you would like to make contact informally with the head of department, Simon Cowan, please email him at headofdepartment@economics.ox.ac.uk.

 

 

Working with us

We are one of the largest and most diverse groups of academic economists in Europe. We aim to provide a supportive and stimulating working environment for all academic staff, administrative staff, students and academic visitors.

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 active support 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 programme 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.
