Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in International Business

University of Surrey - Surrey Business School

Surrey Business School (SBS) is seeking exceptional academics in the areas of International Business to join our Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at either Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level.

Surrey Business School is an internationally recognised centre for management research and teaching. We are accredited by AACSB (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and by AMBA (the Association of MBAs). With over 100 academic staff members from around the globe, we are growing strongly both in terms of size and in terms of the quality, reach and impact of our work. Based in Guildford just outside of London, the University of Surrey is an outstanding international University with an enterprising spirit. 

The Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship encompasses a broad field with diverse research and teaching interests. It unites around a shared interest in the ways in which businesses and other organisations flourish in an increasingly complex global environment. With interests spanning start-ups to international corporations and social enterprises to global institutions, members of the Department focus on the ways in which enterprising behaviours are created, adapted and applied to suit the demands of fast moving environments.

This is a period of exciting development and opportunity for Surrey Business School and the Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship. The successful candidates will be central to both widening and deepening International Business research outputs and impact. Currently, our International Business research focuses on foreign direct investment, knowledge transfer and multinational enterprises and globalisation and the convergence/divergence of global standards. At Lecturer level we are looking for concrete evidence of international research potential and teaching ability at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. You should hold a relevant doctoral degree or have submitted your thesis; for Senior Lecturers we expect an excellent record of scholarship and research of international significance, demonstrated by a strong publication profile and the capability to generate research funding.  

We offer a generous remuneration package, funding for conference attendance, the latest teaching facilities, and access to a variety of staff development opportunities. For informal discussion please contact the Acting Head of the Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, Professor Andy Adcroft (a.adcroft@surrey.ac.uk). Apply on-line at www.surrey.ac.uk/jobs or alternatively please contact Human Resources, either via email on fass_hr@surrey.ac.uk, or by telephone on 01483 683986.
