Lecturer in Supply Chain/Operations Management

The University of Northampton - Faculty of Business and Law

(Fixed Term for up to 30 months)

Following several years of strong domestic growth and international expansion, the Faculty of Business and Law is seeking an innovative specialist in supply chain/operations management to join our Business Subject Group.

The Subject Group currently offers undergraduate programmes in supply chain leadership, international logistics and trade finance, and generalist business programmes. At postgraduate level the portfolio includes programmes in international logistics, project management, and a suite of MBAs that includes a CIPS-accredited pathway.

We are looking for candidates to be part of the delivery and assessment of teaching and learning for students across a range of business and management programmes. To support our expanding portfolio, applications are now invited from candidates that can demonstrate the capability to make a significant contribution to the planning, delivery and assessment of teaching and learning for students on a range of operations and supply chain management modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Due to our international growth it is likely that this role will involve overseas and distance learning as well as classroom-based delivery. The role holder will also be expected to contribute to the development and promotion of new modules and/or programmes in this domain, and to engage in research and/or knowledge exchange activity. The ability to design, deliver and assess programmes of learning that provide a high quality student experience is therefore essential and where appropriate, the role holder will also make a significant contribution to programme leadership and programme developments. 

You will have a demonstrable specialism in supply chain/operations management.  A Doctorate in a cognate subject is highly desirable.  In addition to teaching excellence, you will also be expected to make a significant contribution in at least two of the following: corporate/executive education, overseas development and delivery, distance learning development and delivery, applied research, consultancy and business development.

In return we offer a pleasant, supportive working environment and considerable opportunity for personal growth and development. Moreover, you will be part of a continuing success story and will share in the accolades that follow.

Appointment on the Lecturer or the Senior Lecturer grade will depend on experience and achievement. 

The Faculty is renowned for high quality teaching and research supported by strong links with industry and commerce. Our 87% Overall Satisfaction score in the 2015 National Student Survey included three programmes registering 100% overall satisfaction. 96% of our graduates are in employment or further study six months after graduating (source: DLHE 2014).

Our commitment to be an internationally-facing university that delivers life-changing opportunities for our students through innovation, initiative, empathy and enterprise for positive social change was recognised in 2013 when we were the first in the UK to achieve AshokaU Changemaker Campus status. These distinctive values are reflected in the Faculty’s research, enterprise and teaching and embodied in our leadership at all levels. In 2018 the University will move to the new and prestigious Waterside campus near the heart of Northampton, providing exciting and innovative opportunities for growth and partnerships.
