The University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) is seeking to appoint an outstanding Chair in Economics as part of the drive to enhance ULMS’ position as a world-class School of Management. The Chair will sit within the Economics Subject Group, led by Professor Oliver de Groot.

The appointee will make an outstanding scholarly contribution by conducting world-class research, mentoring early career researchers and supporting the development of colleagues, and enhancing the international reputation of the Group. The Chair will also be expected to shape and support new and innovative teaching directions.

The Group is keen to strengthen existing areas of research and teaching expertise as well as to break new ground in the field of economics. Candidates with interests in the fields of macroeconomics and applied microeconomics are particularly welcomed, especially those who can contribute to the Group’s strength in statistical modelling using big data.  

Members of the Group publish in world-leading journals, including the American Economic Review, Econometrica, the Journal of Political Economy, the Quarterly Journal of Economics, the Review of Economic Studies, as well as in top field journals. The Group has built a strong international research network, with staff collaborating with leading universities and research institutes, such as KU Leuven, Toulouse School of Economics, LSE, UCL, University of Cambridge, Princeton University, University of Pennsylvania, and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR).

Under the leadership of the School Dean, Professor Julia Balogun, the School has received substantial investment in recent years including a new extension adjacent to the Georgian quarter of Liverpool that is home to state-of-the-art facilities. Its 230 academic staff, including 41 full Professors, enjoy a highly collegial and interdisciplinary environment and the School is at the forefront of the University’s commitment to research excellence, succeeding against its vision of global connectivity, transformational research and education, and knowledge leadership. 

Salary will be internationally competitive, commensurate with the appointee’s standing and potential.

Presentations will take place at the University on Wednesday, 22 June 2022 followed by formal interviews on Thursday, 23 June 2022.
