An opportunity for an experienced, collaborative researcher to join an exciting new Institute within University of Strathclyde. The Stephen Young Institute (the Institute), located within Strathclyde Business School (SBS) takes an international and multidisciplinary approach to addressing the world’s big challenges. Named after Professor Stephen Young, former Head of Strathclyde Marketing Department and cofounder of Strathclyde International Business Unit, the Institute seeks to improve processes and relationships of people and organisations in international value networks. Building on the University’s mission as a Place of Useful Learning and SBS’s rich history in marketing, technological innovation and international business, the Institute takes a bold and ambitious approach to addressing systemic challenges such as sustainability and inequality through collaborative international research.

Under the guidance of the Institute Director, you will lead and participate in multiple initiatives including international and multidisciplinary research, knowledge exchange and impact activities. The Institute was created through a generous gift from Strathclyde alum, Dr Charles Huang who completed both his MBA and PhD at Strathclyde Business School. Dr Huang’s donation also funds the Stephen Young Global Leaders Scholarship Programme and the Stephen Young Entrepreneurship Awards.

As Research Fellow, you will establish a distinctive programme of research and disseminate results through publications in peer-reviewed high impact journals and conference proceedings. You will apply, as Principal Investigator and/or Co-Investigator, to appropriate external bodies for research funding and manage grants awarded. You will work on projects with a growing team of international researchers, providing direction, support and guidance. You will participate in and develop external networks to foster research collaborations, to inform the development of research objectives and to identify potential sources of funding. You will develop knowledge exchange activities by, for example, establishing research links with industry and influencing public policy and the professions. You will work to ensure advances in knowledge reach relevant stakeholders through running Institute events, conferences, and teaching. You will carry out Institute administrative and management functions, and engage in continuous professional development.

You will be educated to a minimum of PhD level in an appropriate discipline, or, exceptionally, have significant relevant experience in addition to a relevant degree. You will have research interests consistent with the strategic direction of the Institute, be working towards a body of published research in high quality publications, and an ability to develop research proposals to attract funding. You will have an ability to plan and organise collaborative international research programmes, to ensure successful completion, including the ability to supervise and delegate work. You will have a demonstrated ability to collaborate within a team environment, have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to listen, engage and persuade, and to present complex information in an accessible way to a range of audiences. You may have some experience of teaching at undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels. 

Whilst not essential, applications are welcomed from candidates with: membership of relevant Chartered/professional bodies (including Higher Education Academy), experience of multi/inter-disciplinary research, experience of student assessment activities and/or experience in knowledge exchange activities.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Prof. Emma Macdonald, Stephen Young Institute Director (Sy-institute@strath.ac.uk).
