EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA-accredited, the University of Liverpool Management School is an international management school based in an enterprising and vibrant, world city of culture. Formed in 2002 through the bringing together of a number of well-established departments and research groups in the University of Liverpool, the School provides a world-leading environment for research, management and leadership education. The pursuit of research which is internationally recognised for excellence in its originality, significance and rigour is central to the culture of the School, as is delivery of a strong student experience.
Following the appointment of the School's Dean, Professor Julia Balogun in 2015 and supported by strong ongoing investment from the University and the University's ambitious STRATEGY2026, ULMS is fulfilling its mission to be a globally connected Management School whose transformative research and teaching places it at the forefront of influential knowledge leadership bringing the School together with students, business and society in learning to make a difference.
Over the last five years ULMS has engaged in extensive recruitment of academic and professional services staff, expanding into a state-of-the-art extension adjacent to the Georgian quarter of Liverpool. The School now has over 220 academic staff supported by 85 professional services colleagues. In its wider setting, the School benefits from Liverpool's standing as a member of the UK's leading Russell Group, research-intensive universities and from its location in a city which combines strong cultural activity, excellent transport links, and regional beauty with a world heritage skyline and is highly ranked on quality of life in the UK, while remaining one of Britain's most affordable cities.
In particular ULMS has invested in its historical strength in Sports Management, now offering not just the Football Industries MBA but also an MSc in Sports Business and Management, both supported by the Centre for Sports Business, which is a cross-disciplinary group of researchers with a strong track record of publications in world-leading journals, and consultancy with sports clubs and governing bodies. To strengthen capacity in this area, ULMS is now seeking to appoint Lecturers at Grade 8 with research interests in Sports Marketing, Sports Analytics or Sports Economics.
The successful candidates will be joining the Marketing Subject Group, or another Subject Group in the Management School, depending on specialism. They will also be a member of the Centre for Sports Business.
For posts in Sports Analytics and Economics the ideal candidates will have strong quantitative skills. For all posts candidates will possess a PhD, or be in the final stages of completion, in a relevant area. They will have already obtained some level of success in publishing in world-class or internationally excellent journals. Candidates will be able to demonstrate future research plans and the capacity to sustain and extend a high level of output. They will be expected to demonstrate a successful teaching track-record commensurate with the post as they will teach on undergraduate and/or postgraduate programmes.
Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, together with the ability and enthusiasm to enhance student experience are required skills for the post-holder. Knowledge of the particular needs of international students would be an advantage. Ability to guide and supervise students’ independent learning is also an important requirement. The expected start date for the post will be September 2023, subject to negotiation.
The University has the right to close the vacancy early if it is deemed that there have been enough applications received.
