About this Opportunity
An exciting opportunity has arisen with The University of Queensland's School of Economics for three Lecturers (Level B) and a Senior Lecturer (Level C) to focus their efforts on growing their profile in research, teaching and service and engagement. As a teaching and research academic at Level B or C, you will aspire to achieve international recognition in your field of research.

Key Responsibilities
To engage as a Lecturer or as a Senior Lecturer in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and supervision and further development of the school’s programs, to undertake research of high quality in any field of Economics and Econometrics, and to perform service and engagement activities associated with the School.
