For this post, we particularly welcome applications by women and ethnic minority groups.
Salary is competitive with Departments at our peer institutions worldwide and not less than £61,446 per annum (pay award pending) and the salary scale can be found on the LSE website
Based in the Department of Geography and Environment, you will contribute to the intellectual life of the School through conducting and publishing outstanding quality research, engaging in high quality teaching as instructed by the Head of Department, and participating in the School and wider Department activities. You will join one of the world’s best-known urban and real estate economics and economic geography groups, which enjoys very strong international student demand across a wide range of graduate and undergraduate programmes.
You will have, or be close to finishing, a PhD in Economics, Economic Geography, Finance or a related discipline, by the post start date. Candidates that have completed their PhD studies some time prior to the time of application should be able to demonstrate that they have started to develop a novel and independent research agenda – significantly distinct from their doctoral research (this is particularly important for candidates who completed their studies at the Department).
You will have expertise in Urban Economics with some research focused on any area of Real Estate (including housing and land). Some expertise in Real Estate Finance is desirable but not essential. You will have proven ability, or potential, to publish in refereed international journals and a clear, well developed and viable strategy for future outstanding research that has the potential to result in world-leading publications. You will be expected to work as part of a team in assisting the smooth running of the Department and its teaching programmes, particularly the MSc in Real Estate Economics and Finance. You will have the ability to teach courses in applied Urban and Real Estate Economics, Real Estate Finance and/or Quantitative Methods for Economic Research at BSc and MSc level.
The other criteria that will be used when shortlisting for this post can be found on the person specification, which is attached to this vacancy on the LSE’s online recruitment system.
In addition to a competitive salary the benefits that come with this job include an occupational pension scheme, a research grants policy with personal reward options, generous research leave (sabbatical) entitlement, a collegial faculty environment and excellent support, training and development opportunities.
