Doctoral Associate in Strategy

University of Sheffield - Sheffield University Management School

Faculty: Faculty of Social Sciences

Contract Type: Fixed term for six years

Salary: Potential to progress to £42,418 per annum through sustained exceptional contribution.

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.

In 2015, we introduced the new concept of a ‘Doctoral Associate’. This innovative position is a six-year development pathway for new Lecturers and allows the incumbent to undertake a part-time PhD in 50% of their role whilst lecturing in the other 50%.

We now have an opportunity for someone to join us as a Doctoral Associate in the field of Strategy. You will be expected to teach Strategy as a core discipline, with opportunities to develop other areas of expertise (e.g. innovation) and also have a general research interest in strategy and would like to focus their PhD studies on ‘The Dynamic Capabilities of Manufacturing SMEs in the Face of Uncertainty and Innovation’. It is anticipated that at the end of the six years, subject to the successful completion of a PhD and satisfactory performance in the role, you will be considered for a Lectureship role.

You will take a pro-active role in enhancing Sheffield University Management School's reputation for high quality and innovative teaching and be capable of delivering an excellent student experience at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. You will also be expected and encouraged to develop your research profile through joint research activities which will give you an excellent opportunity to develop your academic career potential.

You will need a first degree and a relevant PhD (or equivalent qualifications/experience) and appropriate experience in teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

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.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
