Surrey Business School (SBS) 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 a strong Senior Management Team led by its newly appointed Dean, Professor Ansgar Richter, we are ambitious in building a world-class interdisciplinary business school where innovative thinking is accelerated into action. Our particular strengths are in digital innovation and technological transformation, leadership and organizational psychology, sustainability and corporate finance/governance. Based in Guildford just outside of London, the University of Surrey is an outstanding international University with an enterprising spirit.

The Department of Business Transformation at Surrey Business School is seeking applications for a senior lecturer position. This is part of an ambitious effort to develop a world-class group of scholars who will make significant contributions to the various facets of management research on business analytics.  The role should have the view that a business is transformed by applying Business Analytics techniques. We are looking for people interested in theoretical expertise in Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Forecasting. Moreover we would like to pioneer research in the next generation of analytical and business visualisation tools (VR/AR). Our department is deeply engaged with local and international businesses which provide opportunity for meaningful interaction ensuring relevant research and teaching. We are looking for someone that supports our revenue generation in the Business and Data Analytics sector (e.g. via bids, Innovate UK funding, etc.). The new hire will increase the visibility of the University by supporting our Analytics Research Cluster. Furthermore, we are looking for someone that has the potential of leading our existing Business Analytics MSc programme. We collaborate with researchers across the University such as computer science, engineering, data science and digital health. 

Candidates should hold a relevant doctoral degree and be from a Mathematics, Data Science, Computer Science, Finance, Econometrics or Industrial Engineering. Candidates should demonstrate their ability and interest to conduct novel empirical research on phenomena that are important to Business Analytics and Transformation. We are particularly interested in candidates who studied AI, big data, machine learning and visualisations while having developed an understanding of how the technology can contribute to decision making and insights in a business environment.

You will have demonstrated a strong potential for A-journal publications and have experience of teaching in higher education – preferably in a business school context. This is a great opportunity for an Analytics orientated person, where you will be able to develop as a scholar in a supportive and exciting environment.

Informal enquires should be directed in the first instance to Dr Wolfgang Garn, Acting Head of the Business Transformation Department,
