You will have an international research reputation and be expected to provide research leadership. You will have a background either in Organizational Behaviour, Organisational Psychology or in Human Resources Management preferably with experience in teaching and/or research in the areas of organizational psychology, leadership, organizational change, healthy workplaces, well-being and performance at work. We are particularly interested in someone with methodological expertise in quantitative research methods and statistics. You will join a dynamic community of interdisciplinary researchers where you will be expected to develop and deliver high quality individual and collaborative research, attract grant funding, enhance impact activity, and publish your findings in top-tier leading peer-reviewed journals. A track record of research in international HRM is desirable.
You will contribute and take a leading role in the delivery, development and coordination of the School’s undergraduate, postgraduate and distance learning curriculums as well as the supervision of postgraduate researchers. You will help drive the School’s impact and engagement agenda and will interact with business, the policymaking sector and/or other relevant stakeholders to help maximise the School’s contribution to societal and economic wellbeing.
