Job Description

We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.

Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.

Nottingham Business School (NBS) at NTU is internationally recognised as one of the world’s leading business schools, providing education and research that combines academic excellence with impact on business and society. NBS is quadruple crown+ school by (EQUIS, AACSB, SBC, and EFMD Accreditation) as well as being a UN PRME Champion.

The accreditation bodies recognise NBS as a leader in the personalisation of education, experiential learning, high impact research, sustainability, and connectivity to business.

In all our work we aim to combine excellence in research, education and external engagement and deliver a positive impact on people, business and society.

NBS is a place for well-rounded academics who care deeply about making a positive difference, are provided with the support to develop their ideas, work with colleagues from diverse backgrounds and excel in bringing innovations that keep NBS as a leading force in business, management and economics research and education.

The Centre for Economics, Policy and Public Management (CEPPM) is one of the largest Research Centres within NBS. It contributes significant numbers of high-quality research papers and Impact Case Studies to the School’s REF Submissions, as well as providing an inspiring and supportive research environment for staff and doctoral candidates.

Research activities within CEPPM are structured around a number of key themes, including Applied Economics and Policy Analysis. We are looking for a well-qualified individual to join the Applied Economics and Policy Analysis team as a Research Fellow. The successful candidate will support colleagues in their research projects, whilst also developing their own research agenda, through outputs published in high quality journals, bids for external research grants, and contributions to the research culture of CEPPM and to NBS, that aligns with the work of CEPPM and its ambitions for future growth.
