London Business School - London Business School - Organisational Behaviour Subject Area

The Organisational Behaviour group of London Business School is currently seeking to fill one tenure-track position. We are looking for exceptional scholars of organisational behaviour and related disciplines (e.g., psychology and sociology) who want to work with an outstanding group of faculty in an unique environment. London Business School is highly international and in the heart of one of the most exciting cities in the world – providing extraordinary access to business, culture, and government.

The OB Group at London Business School

We are part of a research-led school which emphasizes and encourages high-impact, high-relevance research and dissemination in the premier academic journals (e.g., AJS, AMJ, AMR, ASQ, ASR, JAP, JPSP, OBHDP, OS, PS, PSPB). Current research being conducted in the group engages issues such as decision-making, self-regulation, morality, power and status dynamics, negotiations, leadership, teams, personality, organizational culture, social networks, identity, diversity, gender, creativity, emotions and trust. Current research faculty group members include: Daniel Cable, Yoonjin Choi, Daniel Effron, Lynda Gratton, Herminia Ibarra, Ena Inesi, Dana Kanze, Selin Kesebir, Gillian Ku, Pier Vittorio Mannucci, Thomas Mussweiler, Kathleen O’Connor, Randall Peterson, Aneeta Rattan, Eliot Sherman and Niro Sivanathan. In addition, we have a group of organization scholars that resides in the Strategy and Entrepreneurship department looking at topics such as inter-organizational relationships, social stratification processes, and institutional theory (e.g., Isabel Fernandez-Mateo, Freek Vermeulen).

The OB group provides a very supportive research environment, with impressive access to leading global companies for both data and funding (a majority of Fortune 500 companies have a London presence). London Business School also offers excellent research funding support that covers the typical research expenses of faculty. Where extraordinary levels of funding are needed, the school provides excellent administrative support for grant applications to funding bodies such as the Economic and Social Research Council and the European Research Council – several of our colleagues are recipients of generous research grants and fellowships. In addition, we have a world-class behavioural research laboratory for conducting laboratory-based experimentation, and computing and library facilities (through the strong network of libraries of various colleges of the University of London and the British National Library) on par with the best business schools worldwide.

London Business School is a graduate college of the University of London, offering masters and Ph.D. programs plus an extensive Executive Education portfolio. London Business School MBA program has consistently ranked in the top 10 programs in the world, and 1st or 2nd outside of the USA. The Organisational Behaviour curriculum is a major element across all of the School's programs. This diversity enables us to continue to grow as a world-class Organisational Behaviour group over the coming years. Teaching is exciting and challenging with a highly international student body from over 60 countries, and our teaching loads and salaries are highly competitive with the best graduate schools of business in the United States.
