The Strategy and Organisation Division of the School of Management, University of Bath, is seeking to appoint three Lecturers/Senior Lecturers (Assistant/Associate Professors) to join its vibrant and collegial academic community.

We welcome applicants in any area of the Division’s centres of excellence, that is, Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Organisation Studies, and Human Resource Management. We seek people who are equally passionate about teaching and research, and who desire to influence policy and practice. You will play a full role in the thriving research culture of the S&O Division.

Supporting and mentoring new and/or rising academics is a top priority of the Division.

The School of Management is ranked within the UK’s top ten business schools, holds TEF Gold status for its teaching, and is actively working towards building on its award of the Athena Swan bronze status for its diversity strategy.
