Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Sustainability and Environmental Management

Queen Mary University of London - School of Business & Management

The School of Business and Management (SBM) seeks to recruit an outstanding researcher and teacher to a Lectureship or Senior Lectureship in Sustainability and Environmental Management.

QMUL has been recognised as a top 100 university in the Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings, and placed 9th in the UK among multi-faculty institutions in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. It is the fourth largest college in the University of London and is growing rapidly through sustained investments in facilities on one of London’s largest campuses (Mile End), excellent research and improving the student experience.

School of Business and Management

The School has been undergoing a period of rapid growth, doubling our number of academic staff over the last five years. We presently have 85 academic staff, with more appointments in process. We have over 1100 undergraduate Business Studies students plus approximately 600 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QMUL. At the post-graduate level we have around 600 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of around 60 doctoral students.

This post is part of the School’s significant investment in integrating responsibility and sustainability issues throughout our core curriculum. SBM is a recognised leader in sustainability and environmental management research, with around ten members of staff with research interests in this area. The new appointment will help convene sustainability research across the School.  

The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate the capacity to research and publish at an internationally excellent level or higher (at least 3* in the REF framework). Candidates for the lectureship should have a completed doctorate (or have a doctorate under examination) by March 2018 and be able to demonstrate the capacity for international-level research achievement. For the senior lectureship, the successful applicant will already be an established academic and be expected to have a strong publication record with demonstrated potential to publish at the world-leading level (4*).

We will consider applications from any business sub-discipline whose research interests focus on sustainability and environmental management. Applicants will be expected to show how their research interests complement those within the School and how they can contribute to teaching in both the sustainability and core business sub-discipline areas.

All applicants should have the ability to teach and supervise effectively across our main undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

The post is full time and permanent, and is available from 1 March 2018. Applicants who wish to be considered for a job-share arrangement or for flexible working are welcome. The School is proud of its long-standing commitment to diversity and equality, is applying for an Athena Swan award in November 2017 in recognition of this.

Starting salary will be in the range £40,865 - £50,881/ £53,777 - £60,109 per annum inclusive of London Allowance and benefits include 30 days annual leave, USS pension scheme membership, and interest-free travel season ticket loan.
