Job description

As a result of sustained growth the Department of Strategy & Marketing in the University of Sussex Business School is looking to recruit five full-time faculty members at the Lecturer (Assistant Professor) level in the area of Marketing (Education and Research track). The Department consists of three main disciplines: marketing, international business, and entrepreneurship. Staff in the marketing group specialize in research on consumer behavior and consumer culture, business-to-business marketing, product and service innovation, and brand management. We are defined by a passion for teaching, research, and engagement, and focused on creativity, sustainability, technology, and managerial practice.

The Department has a strong reputation within the United Kingdom. Our research was ranked in the top 30 in the recent 2021 REF exercise, which placed us within the upper quartile of all UK-based business and management faculties. We offer several popular undergraduate and postgraduate programs, with our undergraduate marketing program being placed in the top 20 in the recent 2023 Complete Universities Guide. The marketing group within the Department features a mix of research and teaching focused staff. Our work has been published in leading journals including Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Marketing Research, Journal of Product Innovation Management, Journal of Interactive Marketing, Industrial Marketing Management, Marketing Letters, Marketing Theory, and Psychology & Marketing among many others.

We are looking for colleagues with exciting research pipelines that either complements or adds to the interests of our current faculty (https://www.sussex.ac.uk/business-school/people-and-departments/strategy-and-marketing), and for marketing in particular: https://www.sussex.ac.uk/business-school/people-and-departments/strategy-and-marketing/research. In particular, we are seeking scholars interested in digital marketing, new product and service development, consumer behavior, and marketing strategy. We welcome candidates from all ontological and methodological approaches.

The successful candidate will be an engaged early-career academic who enjoys working in a dynamic, multidisciplinary environment and shows enthusiasm for collaborating with colleagues within marketing and across disciplines.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their research has publication potential in top level journals.
