Lecturer/Senior Lecturer – Economics

School of Economics and Finance, Massey Business School

Massey University and its Massey Business School have made a large commitment to research and scholarship. This has resulted in Finance at Massey University being ranked No 1 in New Zealand; we are seeking to develop an equally strong economics programme. We are accredited by AACSB, Association of MBAs, and are a CFA partner school.

The School of Economics and finance offers degree and diploma courses at the undergraduate, masters and Ph.D. levels. Research activities are supported by a collegial research environment, a Research Consultant, and IT Research Analyst and major databases such as DataStream, CRSP, Compustat, etc. We support international conferences and other staff development activities. Faculty are actively engaged in research and have published in top journals like the Journal of Financial Economics, Health Economics, Journal of Industrial Economics, Economic Modelling and Economic Theory, among others. We offer a low teaching load (typically three courses a year) and beginning academics will normally start their career with us at a teaching load of two courses in their first year.

The School is currently seeking to appoint an academic in mainstream economics commencing from June 2017, to teach at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to be responsible for the delivery of some of the School's papers (courses) in this area. You will also be expected to supervise postgraduate students. This role is based in Massey University's Auckland campus at Albany; dubbed as the 'innovation campus'; because of its focus on transforming smart ideas into valued products, tools and services with social, environmental and economic benefits. The academic staff and students on this campus are well connected through research activity, partnerships, internships and events to schools, as well as learning institutes and key organisations around the globe.

The successful candidate should have PhD in Economics with an outstanding continuing research record and a strong desire to interact closely with a group of diverse international faculty. Research supervision of honours, masters and doctoral students is also expected. A track record of successful external research funding and/or engagement with the business community is desirable.
