Our staff publish in leading journals in our fields e.g. Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of World Business, Academy of Management Perspectives, Global Strategy Journal, British Journal of Management and Research Policy. The Department’s research increasingly considers the links between business and government relationships, and we are looking to expand this emphasis. Our team manages a wide range of international business related programmes, e.g. BSc in International Business Management, MSc International Business Management. S&IB is led by Professor Tazeeb Rajwani and includes a healthy mix of research active faculty and practitioner teaching fellows, the latter bringing a wealth of business experience.

As a growing department, we seek to appoint ‘two’ academics at either a Senior Lecturer and/or Reader level in Strategy and International Business to join our dynamic team. The successful applicant will demonstrate clear evidence of their capability to publish world class research (4* and 3* journals), teach international business and related areas across the curricula of UG and PG programmes. They will be expected to play an active role in leading and developing taught programmes, characterised by contemporary academic and commercial content that utilises thoughtful pedagogic approaches to learning and wider student experience. Being physically present on campus through much of the working week will clearly be a key requirement of the post.

This is a full-time position. Conditions and compensation will be at internationally competitive standards and commensurate with the appointees’ experience.
