Best wishes,

Dear Colleague

Please find below an advertisement for at least 3 Lectureships which I would be
grateful if you would bring to the attention of your PhD students and junior

(At least) Three Lectureships in Economics
Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London

Since its establishment in 1965, the Department of Economics has secured a
national and international reputation in teaching and research. Around 20
staff teach an undergraduate programme to around 370 students, and a modular
Master's programme to about 50 postgraduate students (on four programmes,
Economics, Financial Economics, Development Economics and Econometrics).
There are also around 30 research students on the M.Phil./Ph.D. programme.
With these numbers, the Department sustains a high level of activity in a
friendly and informal atmosphere, which is conducive to effective and
serious study, and to creative research.

The Department of Economics received a 4A rating in the 1996 Research
Assessment Exercise, and is now seeking to improve its position with at
least three
permanent appointments. Applications are welcomed from those with expertise
in any area of Economics.

Applications are particularly encouraged from those with expertise in
financial economics. Additionally, with the appointment of George Yarrow as
Visiting Professor, and the anticipated establishment of the European
Regulatory Research Institute under his direction at QMW, the Department is
seeking to strengthen its applied microeconomics, particularly in the area
of regulation. There are also expanding opportunities for health economics
in association with the medical school.

Candidates should have completed (or be near completion of) a doctorate in
Economics. The salary will be on the Lecturer A scale in the range
17,727-22,558 pounds sterling p.a., depending on experience. The closing
date for
applications is 9 May 1997. It is anticipated that interviews will be held
on 9 and 11 June 1997. The post is tenable from 1 September 1997.

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr. Simon Mohun (Head of Department) by
telephone (0171-975-5089) or by email (s.mohun@qmw.ac.uk). For further
particulars, please telephone 0171-975-5171 (24 hour answerphone), or email
coll-recruit@qmw.ac.uk, quoting reference 97033/LPC. Further particulars are
also available on the Economics web page at http://www.econ.qmw.ac.uk.

Six copies of a completed application form with a c.v. including the names
and addresses of three referees should be returned by 9 May, 1997 to
