Bournemouth University provides a stimulating, challenging, and rewarding university experience in a world-class learning community, by sharing our unique fusion of excellent education, research, and professional practice, and inspiring our students, graduates, and staff to enrich the world.

Within the Faculty of Management, the Department of Events & Leisure is signalling investment and growth that builds upon Bournemouth’s existing excellence and global reputation for combining research, practice, and teaching.

As Lecturer in Events Management you will be committed to excellence in practice, teaching, and research. Enthusiastic about student-centred pedagogy, you will contribute to education delivery, including programme management as required, across the range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. You will also make a significant contribution to employability, and professional engagement with relevant internal and external organisations, at a regional, national, and international level.

You will be expected to strengthen the Department’s position as a high-level research institution, in joining an active and productive group of scholars whose work coalesces around the interdisciplinary understanding of tourism and hospitality. You will also engage in attracting external grant funding, knowledge transfer, continuous professional development, consultancy, and other forms of external engagement and professional practice, as appropriate.

We welcome expertise in any relevant areas and from relevant disciplinary backgrounds. It would be an advantage if you can demonstrate an affinity between your own research programme, research in the Department, cross-Faculty research themes, and demonstrate links across the University.

You will be qualified to Doctorate level or be able to demonstrate the ability to create and disseminate knowledge at an equivalent level, and the capability to convert this knowledge into a doctorate in a maximum of 3-5 years from the date of appointment. You will be research-active and committed to a culture of academic excellence and continuous improvement.
