Subject Group Head and Chair, Marketing and Operations Management

University of Liverpool - University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) / Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

AACSB accredited and with its full-time MBA ranked in the Economist top 100, ULMS sits in the top 5% of business schools globally. With strong ongoing investment from the University it is well positioned to enhance its national and international standing as it moves into its next phase of development, giving particular emphasis to developing the volume and reach of its world-class research activity.

ULMS has 170 academic staff who enjoy a strongly collegial, research-supportive, and intellectually vibrant interdisciplinary environment. Well-connected with industry and the professions, the School’s research activity and external relationships have clear real-world impact. The School has recently moved into its new extension in the Georgian quarter of Liverpool with state of the art facilities including a trading room and a marketing suite.

Student numbers, calibre and satisfaction are high with a strong PhD cohort. In addition to the main Liverpool campus, ULMS offers a range of City-relevant programmes at its London campus in Finsbury Square, including a CFA recognised Masters in Finance and Investment Management, and significant online provision, as well as programme and research collaborations with its international partner, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, near Shanghai.

In its wider University setting, the School benefits from connections with key research institutes (the Institute of Risk and Uncertainty, and the Heseltine Institute of Public Policy) and the on-going development of the University under the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Janet Beer. The City of Liverpool combines strong cultural activity, excellent transport links, and regional beauty with a world heritage skyline and is highly ranked on quality of life in the UK, while remaining one of Britain’s most affordable cities.

The School now seeks to appoint an outstanding academic leader as Subject Group Head and Chair, Marketing and Operations Management. Reporting to the School Director, Professor Julia Balogun, and serving on the School Management Team, the Subject Group Head will provide strong research leadership across the Group and contribute to the articulation and delivery of the School’s strategy. The Head will develop priorities, ensure support for researchers at all career stages, and take responsibility for the delivery of a high quality, research-led curriculum, as well as leading on recruitment for the Group.

The role of Subject Group Head will be for five years initially and will be offered in combination with a permanent post at Professorial level. Salary will be internationally competitive, commensurate with the appointee’s accomplishment and potential.
