Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Development Economics - King's College London

posted Mar 7, 2017, 3:05 AM by Berlin Development
The Department of International Development is seeking outstanding candidates for a lecturer/ senior lecturer in Development Economics. The successful applicant will be an applied economist whose research focuses on the broad area of economic development or emerging economies. Within this rubric there is no restriction regarding the specific field of research. 

The appointee will join an interdisciplinary team currently working on a wide range of topics including political economy of development, inclusive growth, inequality and poverty, gender rights, natural resources, international trade, migration, health policy, education, and other pressing issues facing emerging economies today. 
DID is a young, innovative and contemporary development studies department. Our focus is on the middle-income developing countries or ‘emerging economies’, meaning the fast growing economies of the developing world where foreign aid is largely irrelevant. The mission is to explore the sources of success as well as understand the major development challenges they continue to face. The approach taken is one of studying context and actual economic, social and political change in middle-income countries rather than prescriptive models of development. The institute has regional expertise on Latin America, Asia and Africa but any regional focus within the ‘emerging’ world is welcome.
