Depending on experience, lecturers may conduct original research and serve on various departmental and college committees.

The Business Economics faculty members at the Eccles School are highly research active and well networked in academia and industry. Opportunities for the lecturing faculty to collaborate in research studies and practice-oriented student projects are abundant.

Salaries and teaching loads are competitive with top economics departments and business schools, and the fringe benefits are excellent.
