About the Department of Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour (DHRMOB)

HRMOB is an internationally recognised world-class department where our teaching and research interests relate to the shifting worlds of work and employment, together with the management and behaviour of people and organisations. Members of the DHRMOB are thought leaders in their respective domains of expertise and publish widely in top-tier journals. HRMOB has an expanding portfolio of UG and PG programmes and is home to a thriving student community. Sustainability research is a key strength within SBS. The department aims to leverage this interdisciplinary capability by bringing a leadership perspective to sustainability research, and further expand its research, education and knowledge exchange to ultimately address societal, business and organisational challenges in a world of complex interdependencies. 

About you

As a Professor, you will play a key role in planning and shaping sustainability and leadership research, teaching, and knowledge exchange, as well as the school’s agenda for interdisciplinary research in these critical areas for world-class business schools. You will bring to the role a strong professional reputation that should be evidenced through the production of world class research in leading academic journals. You should have led (or participated in) major funding bids, setting up, and managing the resources needed to deliver research projects. You should also be willing to act as a leader of the department of human resource management and organisational behaviour in a formal capacity (e.g., as Head of Department) or as a mentor of junior scholars. In addition, you will act as a leader and ambassador for our school and university across management and enterprise or other engagement activities.

You will be an experienced educator with a proven track record of high-quality teaching and pedagogical innovations, and willing to contribute to the development of education policy and practice as well as design and develop courses and programmes at all levels (UG, MSc, MBA and Executive Education). You should have sufficient experience supervising doctoral students (PhD and DBA programmes).   

We welcome applications from candidates with a well-established research profile in the areas of sustainability and leadership. The ideal candidate will have research expertise in sustainability and leadership from both scholarly and practice perspectives. 

Given that you will have to engage in some leadership role, you should also have demonstrable leadership skills. Such skills can be evidenced through your research, education and/or having held a key leadership role. Overall, you will have proven ability to innovate, engage and inspire students and colleagues alike, helping thus build a strong academic and collegial community.
