The School of Economics & Finance is part of Scotland's first university, with an established reputation as one of Europe's leading and most distinctive centres for research and teaching.

By fostering an inclusive and collegial environment where all staff and students can thrive and achieve their best, the School delivers outstanding research and teaching in all areas of Economics and Finance and was ranked joint tenth in the UK in terms of research outputs in the Research Excellence Framework in 2014 and sixth in the UK for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey in 2021.

We are now seeking to recruit a Professor and a Reader to further strengthen our position as a leading centre for research and teaching in Economics and Finance.

The primary criteria for appointment will be evidence of an internationally recognised research record, proven ability in academic leadership, a clear programme of anticipated research activity for the coming years, and a significant research funding record. Applications are particularly welcome from candidates who can demonstrate strengths in research impact.

The successful candidate for the Professorship will be an outstanding scholar of international standing with a track record of excellent publications, PhD supervision and leading high quality externally funded research projects.

The successful candidate for the Readership will have a developing research agenda of excellent publications, PhD supervision and externally funded projects.

The positions will play an important role in strengthening current and future leadership within the School. To learn more about the School, please visit our website at where you can also find a link to the School strategic plan.

Equality, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of the St Andrews experience. We strive to create a fair and inclusive culture demonstrated through our commitment to diversity awards (Athena Swan, Carer Positive, LGBT Charter, Race Charters and Stonewall).
