Location Park Campus, Other

Following several years of strong domestic growth and international expansion, the Faculty of Business and Law (FBL) wishes to appoint an innovative specialist in the area of international strategy and business to extend our team.

The successful candidate can expect to teach and supervise across undergraduate and postgraduate levels (including delivery overseas) and to contribute to the extension of technology enhanced learning across our portfolio. The Faculty has an outstanding reputation in the delivery of business-relevant programmes that are underpinned by our engagement in research and enterprise. You will join a team of highly qualified academics with a passion for enhancing the student experience, and who deliver learning and teaching that is research-informed and technology-enhanced. We would therefore expect the candidate to have Fellowship of the HEA or a recognised HE teaching qualification. A PhD in a relevant field is highly desirable.

Excellent interpersonal skills and intercultural sensitivity are essential, and you must be able to demonstrate expert knowledge in the field and be able to teach effectively on a range of academic and professional programmes using a variety of approaches to student learning.  You will possess strong quantitative and/or qualitative analytical skills as well as knowledge and expertise covering international business & strategy.

It is highly likely that this post will involve collaboration with international partners and/or international travel. Experience of Programme Leadership, Module Leadership, Distance Learning and Learning Technologies, in addition to practitioner experience to complement academic credentials, are essential for the post.

We are ambitious, externally facing and engaged in a wide and growing range of enterprise, social enterprise, corporate education and training and applied research activities. We offer a pleasant, supportive working environment; moreover, you will be part of a continuing success story and will share in the accolades that follow.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Dr Sandhya Sastry, Subject Leader for International Strategy & Business sandhya.sastry@northampton.ac.uk

Interview Date: Friday 1 December 2017

The University of Northampton’s focus on a personalised learning experience for our students was recently cited by HEFCE as a reason for our Gold award in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017. To augment this approach further we have adopted an ‘Active Blended Learning’ (ABL) approach which places greater emphasis on student-centred activities that support the development of subject knowledge, understanding, independent learning and digital fluency. Successful candidates for academic posts at the University of Northampton will be expected to adopt ABL as standard in their teaching practice.

This is an exciting time to join our University as we prepare to relocate in September 2018 to a new purpose-built, town-centre campus designed to adapt to 21st century teaching and the ABL model. We are looking to recruit individuals who share our passion for innovation, creativity and social impact and who will play a key role as we realise our ambition of transforming lives for the better and inspiring positive change.

All candidates will be asked to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK at interview.

The University of Northampton as an employer strives to achieve diversity among its staff which reflects the communities it serves.
