The School of Management is seeking to appoint an Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) in Business & Society, to join the Marketing, Business & Society Division.

About us:

The School of Management is a vibrant and productive community. In the 2021 Research Excellence Framework (REF), Times Higher ranked the School 7th in the UK for Business and Management Studies and 4th in the UK for its research environment. 93% of research is classed as world leading and internationally excellent. It was ranked 1st for Marketing (the Complete University Guide 2021) and 3rd for Business & Management Studies (the Complete University Guide 2021).

The School also achieves research excellence in the Business & Society field: the Centre for Business, Organisations & Society (CBOS), which is led by Professor Andrew Crane, is an international hub for the field’s leading scholars and has a long-established, global reputation. Colleagues within CBOS are active contributors to the academic community: editing journals, taking-up leadership positions in professional bodies, organising workshops and conferences and supporting and training new researchers. The Business & Society Group also achieves teaching excellence on our highly rated undergraduate and master’s degrees, including the MSc in Sustainability & Management.

About you:

You will be an outstanding scholar, with a record of achieving excellence in research and a proven teaching ability. You will be expected to deliver a sustained record of internationally-leading research across published outputs, funding capture and practical impact, and contribute high quality teaching to undergraduate and postgraduate students. In addition to an enthusiasm to teach across the Business & Society field, we are particularly interested in candidates who are well-placed to teach topics relating to environmental management.
