Highly ranked. Good reputation. Promising future.
We are already one of the UK’s leading business schools. But we have big ambitions.
We want to become an international leader in graduate education. We aim to do this through our new £70 million building and our commitment to high-quality teaching and research.
By joining our faculty you can play a part in our - and our students’ - success. Our students are as ambitious as we are, and we’re always looking for people who want to help shape the next generation of leaders.
The quality of our staff and their dedication to research have helped us gain international recognition. In the latest Research Excellence Framework (2014), 41% of our submissions met the 4* standard (the highest possible). It classed 87% of our research as world-leading or internationally excellent.
Our faculty are known for the impact of their research. They publish in leading journals. But this impact is also felt outside of academia, creating change in policy and practice.
We are dedicated to ensuring our research has a positive impact on people’s lives. That’s why we launched Research4Good to change the way people do research.
Work with us. Bring your ideas. Together we can change the world.
Join our faculty and immerse yourself in our research culture. We create an atmosphere that allows our researchers to grow both professionally and personally. Examples of this include:
Our faculty members have the freedom to choose what they research. Whatever your expertise, we will support you as you push for change.
Incentive schemes and funding benefits
Our incentive schemes reward you with extra research money when you publish in leading journals and submit large grant applications.
We also have funds available for the creation of research with impact, and seed corn funds to help newer faculty to start exploring research questions.
We think that there should be no barriers to doing great research. So our conference fund, open to all faculty, can help cover costs for conferences worldwide.
We regularly invite external leading experts to speak about their work. Our seminars are a great way to keep up with the latest thinking and build relationships with your peers.
All new faculty are invited to a School induction. We'll introduce the School to you and explore your career development and promotion opportunities. You’ll also learn about teaching expectations.
We want everyone to feel supported and settled from the start. All new junior faculty members conducting research will be assigned two mentors, one in teaching and one in research. Teaching fellows new to the School will be given a mentor in teaching. Mentors are your first point of contact for help and advice.
Support and training
You can also receive research-related training. We provide, among other things, writing workshops and help with making grant applications. And you’ll also have access to training opportunities through the University's Centre for Learning and Teaching.
We value the hard work of our staff. As well as a range of facilities and a supportive working environment, working here provides many extra benefits:
- generous holiday, as well as public holidays and University closure days
- family-friendly policies and a campus nursery
- financial rewards for excellence
- opportunities for professional development
- help with relocation costs if moving far
The city of Bath and our campus are compact, vibrant and friendly. The size of our campus creates a real sense of community. Located 1.2 miles (2km) from Bath’s city centre, our campus has a range of facilities, including:
- a £35m sports complex, with discounts for staff
- an onsite nursery
- banks and shops
- lots of places to buy food and drink
Bath is a beautiful city known for its natural hot springs and Georgian architecture. Surrounded by rolling green hills, there are plenty of things to do whatever your interests.
We are international in our outlook. We’re committed to offering support to prospective and current EU staff in the wake of Brexit. Research has no borders. We want our work to benefit everyone. Our global community provides us with unique insights and extends the reach of our impact.
We are also committed to gender equality. We have been awarded an Athena SWAN Bronze Award, valid until November 2022.
We want our work on gender equality to have a lasting impact. We aim to achieve this through initiatives such as:
- continued growth of the school
- our School PhD Action Plan
- the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers
- Widening Participation
