Main duties & responsibilities

As part of a new investment strategy, we are planning to appoint two new colleagues at Reader/Professor level dependent upon experience and qualifications.   These are part of the Business School’s strengthening of its research infrastructure and environment. We are looking for staff from any cognate of Business and Management who can contribute to our existing areas of research expertise across the Business and Management spectrum.

The appointee will attract and mentor early years researchers, will undertake teaching at both postgraduate and undergraduate levels, generate income from research funding and will build professorial and knowledge exchange networks.

The person and their research expertise and track record is more important than the subject specialism though we would welcome applications from staff with specialisms in Health Care Management, Management, Economics, Marketing, Finance, Accounting, Work and Employment with quantitative skills.  There will scope to develop your own research activities with staff, and to support your research development strategy.

We are also appointing a number of additional Research Fellows.  The Research fellow appointments are designed to build the research infrastructure in the School and to support our existing research groups. We provide a very generous amount of time for research for Readers and Professors to support the research culture and there will be an expectation to undertake a limited amount of teaching as well as research supervision.

Skills and experience needed

We are looking for researchers with transferrable skills from across the social science field so areas such as Sociology, Psychology, Statistics, Information Technology, Psychology as well as other Business and Management areas are welcome to apply. We are seeking people preferably with 4* and some 3* research outputs as well as success in bidding for research grants.  You will also need quantitative skills.  You must have a track record of PhD supervision with a minimum of TWO successful completions together with extensive teaching experience at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, a record of quality published research of international standing and an excellent record in attracting research funding.

In addition, for a professorial appointment, an international research record and reputation, including publications for REF submission, success in research income generation, evidence of engagement with the impact agenda, significant experience of curriculum design and assessment and the ability to teach modules on the Business and Management pathways.

Qualifications required

PhD in a relevant area.

As this is a readership or professorial appointment, the names and contact details of three academic referees of appropriate standing in the field are required who may be approached by the University prior to interview.

The Appointment Panel for the post will be constituted in such a way that if the successful candidate fulfils the University's Professorial criteria, then the Panel may award a Professorial title to the successful candidate.
