Kingston University, UK

Visiting Lecturers (2) | Department of Economics

The economics department at Kingston University expects to have two opportunities for visiting lecturers in business economics in the coming academic year.  Successful teaching experience is essential, but evidence of quality will trump evidence of quantity, and thus graduate students may consider applying. We are looking for module leaders for first- and second-year modules as outlined below; teaching programmes are currently being written by department members, but detailed delivery is at the discretion of the module leader.  Both modules can be approached in terms of a conversation between neo-classical and heterodox approaches. They are 30-credit modules running throughout the academic year. Precise student numbers will depend on clearing and retakes, but in each case will probably be not more than two seminar groups (that is, about 40 students).  For more details please contact me, as detailed below. Note that these will be hourly-paid positions.

Best wishes,

Dr Julian Wells
