AACSB accredited School with its full-time MBA ranked in the Economist top 100, the University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) is an international management school based in an enterprising and vibrant, world city of culture.  Formed in 2002, with significant investment from the University, and led by the Dean, Professor Julia Balogun, the School is well positioned to further enhance its national and international standing, giving particular emphasis over the next period to developing world-class research activity. ULMS has 170 academic staff who enjoy a strongly collegial, research-supportive, and intellectually stimulating interdisciplinary environment. Faculty within the School operate in five subject groups (Accounting and Finance; Economics; Marketing and Operations; Strategy, International Business and Entrepreneurship; Work, Organisation and Management) but adopt a distinctive, highly collaborative approach, working in interdisciplinary teams which span the School and University. As a vital part of its research environment, ULMS has excellent provision for PhD students, benefiting from its membership of the ESRC North West Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (of which the University of Liverpool is a constituent university), which has pathways both in Accounting and Finance and in Business and Management.

The Work, Organisation and Management Group of the University of Liverpool Management School is now seeking to appoint two new colleagues in Organisational Behaviour at the level of Lecturer (the equivalent of Assistant Professor) / Senior Lecturer (the equivalent of Associate Professor). The individuals appointed will play a central role in the continued growth of the School and contribute to our core objectives for research and teaching in Work, Organisation and Management.

Candidates for the Lecturer role (Grade 8) will possess a relevant PhD, or be close to completion of a PhD, in the area of Organisational Behaviour/Organisation Studies, and will demonstrate an embryonic track record of publications in world-leading or internationally excellent journals in these areas. For appointment at the Senior Lecturer (Grade 9) level, candidates will have an existing track record of top-level publications in Organisational Behaviour/Organisational Psychology over a number of years, and preferably hold ‘Chartered Occupational Psychologist’ registration with the British Psychological Society. In both cases, candidates will be able to evidence future research plans demonstrating a capacity to sustain and extend the existing high level of output.

Candidates will also be expected to demonstrate a successful teaching track record commensurate with the post as they will teach in the undergraduate and/or postgraduate programmes. The School seeks excellence in all aspects of the student experience and for individuals with a passion for innovative pedagogies and the capacity to create and deliver new and highly contemporary modules.

Applications must consist of an application form alongside a full academic CV and optionally accompanied by a brief covering letter addressing the criteria in the Person Specification.

To apply, or download the application form and Candidate Pack, see below.

The deadline for receipt of applications is midday (GMT) on Friday, 23 March 2018.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to deliver presentations and interview on Tuesday, 17 and Wednesday, 18 April 2018.
