As a result of increasing student numbers, the Department of Management at Aberdeen Business School is looking to appoint two enthusiastic, collaborative colleagues who can contribute across our suite of undergraduate and post-graduate programmes and related corporate activity.
A research active academic your main goal will be to inspire and prepare students at all levels of study to make an impact on the fast-changing business world. In addition, you will be expected to work alongside established researchers towards publications in the top relevant research journals.
You'll have an honours degree and masters’ degree in a relevant discipline and will already possess a PhD or be in the writing-up stage. With that you'll bring a sound knowledge of business and management theory and practice and may have a further related area of specialism which we would work with you to develop. Areas that we are particularly interested in are business strategy, the digital agenda in the business context, the energy transition agenda and work-based learning in its many forms.
Management research within Aberdeen Business School currently comprises several areas, including: strategy; planning and policy processes - particularly in the energy and renewables sectors; social aspects of entrepreneurship and SMEs; family business and the circular economy. We also have emerging research interests in aspects of the digital business agenda – an area we are particularly keen to develop. The Schools is also involved in pedagogic research around employability, work-based learning and authentic assessment practice. Staff have received funding from various sources, including ESRC and SFC. Research is disseminated at academic and business events and published in high profile journals, monographs and reports.
Having been recognised as Times Higher Education’s Business School of the Year 2020, we are in the business of changing lives, developing students into highly employable graduates. This is your opportunity to be part of that amazing journey and join our 1500 colleagues within the university who already enjoy the intellectual challenge, the vibrant community, richly rewarding work and lifestyle, including flexible working options.
