Northumbria is a research-intensive modern university with a global reputation for academic excellence.
Ranked in the UK top 50 (Guardian University League Table 2022 and Complete University Guide 2023), Northumbria recorded the biggest rise of any UK university for research power in the Research Excellence Framework for the second time in 2021 and is now rated within the top 25 in the UK.
Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University, is one of few business schools worldwide that have double AACSB accreditation both for Business and Accounting. We have an outstanding reputation in the delivery of business relevant programmes that are underpinned by research. Northumbria's improvement in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework for research power was reported as being the biggest in the country, and within our Business and Management submission over 60 % of our Impact was assessed as either world leading or internationally excellent. Many of our business programmes have EPAS accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development and/or enjoy professional accreditation from a range of highly regarded professional bodies. In 2015, Newcastle Business School won the prestigious Times Higher Education “Business School of the Year” award.
Working within the Department of Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Strategy, you will join a team of highly qualified academics with a passion for enhancing the student experience. You will contribute to research informed and technology enabled learning and teaching on our contemporary suites of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. A small number of these programmes will be offered at our new campus in Amsterdam (see below). In addition to teaching, you will undertake research and scholarly activities, contributing to the Faculty’s research profile and REF submission, together with contributing to consultancy, enterprise, and other income generation and business development activities.
Northumbria University has launched our new campus in the heart of the European Union in the city of Amsterdam with the first students enrolled from September 2018. This provides an exciting opportunity for research and teaching activities and the successful candidate may be asked to become involved in teaching at any of our campuses or one of our other international partners.
You must have (or be close to completing) a PhD or DBA in a relevant area of Entrepreneurship, with an emerging record of publications. We would particularly welcome applicants with expertise in quantitative research methods. With excellent interpersonal skills, you must be able to demonstrate expert knowledge in the field and be able to teach effectively on a range of academic and professional programmes using a variety of approaches to student learning. Evidence of research outputs which are of high quality and are consistent with criteria for inclusion in future Research Excellence Framework submissions are also essential.
