Are you interested in working for a world top 100 university? Would you like to be part of a high achieving, diverse department ranked number 1 in the World for Library and Information Management through the QS World Rankings and recognised for its world-class research, excellence in teaching and the achievements of its graduates?

The Information School has an exciting opportunity for an ambitious, highly motivated and hardworking Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Information and Knowledge Management to join us to expand and enhance our research and teaching in these areas. If you are a high quality candidate with research expertise that will complement and strengthen our existing research profile we would like to hear from you!

We are seeking candidates with a PhD or equivalent in a relevant field with a proven teaching ability and a strong commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration, and who will make a key contribution to advancing the School’s leading position in the field. In the position you can make a strong contribution to the further development of our research activities; to the delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes; and to the supervision and development of research students. You will collaborate with other relevant research groups and networks in the School, and across the University. As this role will involve supervising and supporting research students and colleagues you will be required to foster a culture of mutual support and collegiality. At Senior Lecturer level, we are interested in hearing from you if you also have experience of supporting staff performance and the ability to lead and manage research activity.

As a School we provide an excellent environment for academic career development including for early career researchers. We provide opportunities for mentorship, collaboration across disciplines and we are characterized by collegiality. The School values diversity and is committed to recognizing the contributions of all scholars. We have achieved an Athena Swan Bronze departmental award which recognizes our continuing work towards gender equality. The University also has a strong commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), with (for example) an Athena SWAN Silver institutional award for our ongoing work to progress gender equality, and a Race Equality Strategy and Action Plan to target issues of under-representation, progression and attainment. In the Information School our staff are involved in various ways in contributing to these and other core areas of faculty and university EDI strategy, and all new members of our team will be encouraged to do the same.
