Jobs vacancy announcement:

LSE Fellow in Social Economics and Inequality


Salary from £35,432 to £42,860 pa inclusive of London allowance with potential to progress to £46,117 pa 
This is a fixed-term appointment for one year in the first instance, starting from 2 September 2019, with the possibility of an extension for a further year

The Department of Social Policy at LSE is the longest established in the UK and has received the highest possible rating in all Research Assessment Exercises carried out in the UK. The 2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject place the Department of Social Policy 3rd in the world.

The Department is seeking to appoint an LSE Fellow who is able to make an important contribution to its teaching, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to its research. The post presents an excellent starting point for an academic to gain teaching experience while developing their research career. The post arises because of the sabbatical leaves of departmental faculty members. 

You will provide teaching on several courses, notably SA104 Social Economics and Policy (BSc level) and PP4X6 Welfare Analysis and Measurement (MSc/MPA level). You must have relevant teaching experience and excellent communication skills. Teaching-related administrative experience would be an advantage. By the post’s start date, you will have completed or be close to obtaining a PhD in social policy, economics, or another area related to the topics covered by SA104 and PP4X6; and you will have a developing research record in social and public policy.

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.

Jobs vacancy announcement:

Economist at the World Bank


The World Bank is looking for an Economist with strong data science skills to work on the methodology, data and platform behind the global poverty and inequality numbers, including PovcalNet. The SDGs’ focus on ‘ending poverty in all its forms’ and the corresponding indicators place new demands on the reporting of international poverty statistics. Furthermore, the Atkinson Commission on Global Poverty has made 21 recommendations to improve the World Bank’s poverty measurement. Incorporating these innovations into the global poverty measures will require new analytical and methodological work, as well as incorporating these new features into the PovcalNet platform.
