Are you interested in working for a top-ranked Management School which has achieved accreditation from the three largest and most influential business school associations: AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS? 

With world-class facilities, ground-breaking research and cutting-edge thinking, we are seeking applications from ambitious, highly motivated and talented individuals who will be keen to play an active role in maintaining and enhancing the Management School’s international reputation for research, teaching excellence and innovation.

There is for example potential to join the N8 Agrifood project.

You will be a proven thought leader and researcher in these areas, with a distinguished publication record at a world-leading level. You should have significant experience in winning external research funding, with an ambition to grow a critical mass of funding and resources and to provide intellectual direction for research appropriate to the position. You will have a PhD (or equivalent experience) in a relevant subject area and be able to demonstrate skills in the leadership and the mentoring of academic staff in research, publication and income generation activities, and also have the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues from within the University and from private and public sector organisations.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
