Academic opportunities within the School of Management

The School of Management is entering an exciting, expansive, period of development. We are seeking internationally renowned candidates to help us fulfil our new vision under the leadership of Professor Marc Clement and a highly energised Senior Management Team.

Based in a state of the art building on a new seafront campus, the School has an international reputation for excellence in research and teaching, which is reflected by the successful REF2014 result.

Building on the success of REF2014, the School of Management is now seeking to make up to seven professorial level appointments in order to provide strong academic leadership and a supportive environment to junior colleagues, as well as to execute the School’s vision regarding teaching, research, and international esteem.
