Job description

The Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU), within the School of Business, Management and Economics, is internationally recognized as a leading institution for interdisciplinary research in science, technology and innovation to tackle real-world questions.

SPRU offers five well-established Courses -- MSc in Science and Technology Policy, Energy Policy, Project Management, Strategic Innovation Management and Sustainable Development. The content for each MSc is closely related to the research activity of the teaching faculty and its practical application.  In addition, SPRU faculty provide teaching to other departments in the University including the Department of Economics.

SPRU wishes to appoint a lecturer in the Economics of Innovation to join a growing group of economists conducting research on the microeconomics and macroeconomic sources, patterns and consequences of innovation.

The successful applicant will have a demonstrable record of teaching, which will complement and extend the teaching and research activities of SPRU. The post-holder, in particular, is expected to design and deliver innovative new teaching and assist the Phillips Chair of Economics in the administration, organization and growth of teaching and research in the economics of innovation.

The successful candidate is required to be research active and someone who will thrive in a collaborative and collegial environment. The successful candidate can come from any aspect of economics of innovation but is expected to have econometric capabilities.

Applications are invited from both early career academics and more experienced lecturers.

Informal enquiries may be made with Professor Ed Steinmueller w.e.steinmueller@sussex.ac.uk
