Kent Business School (KBS) is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management/Organisational Behaviour to join the Department of Leadership and Management. We are looking for a dedicated scholar who is keen to make a strong contribution to both research and teaching in this area, as well as our student enterprise and business engagement activities.
The successful applicant will lead and contribute to the delivery of HRM/OB modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In particular, the post holder will be expected to provide teaching in one or more of the following: Strategic Human Resource Management, HR Analytics, and Organisational Psychology, or possibly new modules in the successful candidate’s own area of expertise.
In addition to previous teaching experience, the post holder should have a clearly defined research agenda with a track record or clear potential to publish in top peer-reviewed journals. Evidence of income generation, impactful research, or corporate engagement is expected in the case of appointments at Senior Lecturer level.

Although based at Medway, you may be expected to take up teaching and other responsibilities at the University’s other campuses, study centres and off campus for the delivery of Higher and Degree Apprenticeships.
Both Canterbury and Medway offer excellent places to live whether urban, rural or coastal living is your preference.The School offers a competitive salary, generous support for research/scholarship as well as a collegial and cohesive work environment.
