Are you interested in working for a top-ranked Management School which has achieved accreditation from the three largest and most influential business school associations: AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS?

With world-class facilities, ground-breaking research and cutting-edge thinking, we are seeking applications from ambitious, highly motivated and talented individuals who will be keen to play an active role in maintaining and enhancing the Management School’s international reputation for research, teaching excellence and innovation.

This is your chance to join Sheffield University Management School at a crucial stage in our evolution as we have an opportunity for someone to join us who can deliver excellent research and teaching within the field of Managerial Economics. We are particularly interested in candidates with policy-relevant expertise in regional economics, productivity and health who would be willing and able to deliver research methods training at all levels if necessary and support the further development of CREED, and/or other relevant research centers, clusters and research projects.

You will be a proven thought leader and researcher in these areas, with a distinguished publication record at a world-leading level. You should have significant experience in winning external research funding, with an ambition to grow a critical mass of funding and resources and to provide intellectual direction for research appropriate to the position. You will be able to demonstrate skills in the leadership and the mentoring of academic staff in research, publication and income generation activities, and also have the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues from within the University and from private and public sector organisations. You will hold a relevant PhD (or equivalent qualifications/experience) and have a distinguished record of teaching, ideally with a recognised teaching qualification.

It is anticipated that interviews and other selection action will be held on Wednesday 30 October 2019. Full details will be provided to invited candidates.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
