The Department provides a base for a diverse and internationally renowned group of academic economists. There are some sixty economists holding permanent appointments, including fourteen Fellows of the British Academy and thirteen Fellows of the Econometric Society.
The Department of Economics is located in the Manor Road Building, designed by Sir Norman Foster and completed in 2003. In addition to office space for Faculty and administrative staff, there is an open-plan workspace at Manor Road for postdoctoral research fellows and research students.
The department accommodates a number of externally funded research groups and projects, including the Centre for the Study of African Economics (CSAE), Oxford Institute for Global Economic Development (OxIGED), Centre for the Analysis of Resource-Rich Economics (OxCarre), Institute for Economic Modelling (EMod), Centre for Health Service Economics and Organization (CHSEO) and International Growth Centre (IGC), a joint venture between Oxford and the LSE.
The Manor Road Building is approximately fifteen minutes’ walking distance from the city centre. In addition to the Department of Economics, it also houses other departments within the Social Sciences Division, the Bodleian Social Science Library, and an excellent cafeteria.
