Edinburgh Napier Business School is one of the largest modern Business Schools in Scotland, at the leading edge of innovation, with a strong academic reputation in undergraduate, postgraduate, executive education, and business research.

The school is focused on the delivery of a portfolio of programmes which reflect the needs of students and places greater emphasis on practical experiences and application of learning. We develop employable (and self-employable) graduates who will drive economic growth both at home and abroad.

We also have strong and developing links with business through research-led teaching, practice-based classroom activities, student placements, business support, research and consultancy.  Our academic staff maintain close links with industry, through professional body memberships, Knowledge Transfer Programmes, and both Work Based Learning and Live Project module supervision.

You will also be responsible for developing, designing and delivering teaching and student-centred learning underpinned by academic scholarship and professional practice within your assigned areas of responsibility, using your experience to contribute to the support of our expanding MSc portfolio.

Individual and collaborative research projects will allow you to contribute to the research profile within your School, leading to the production of high-quality research outputs and outcomes. An interest in and some evidence of research outputs in the areas of sustainability, technology and/or data analytics would be of particular interest to the Subject Group.
