Job description

The Department of Management is recruiting a full-time Lecturer to strengthen our research culture and teaching portfolio in the general area of areas of Operations Management and/or Supply Chain Management. We encourage candidates with research interests and expertise in digital innovations needed to manage the global supply chain, logistics, and the circular economy.

The successful candidate will be a research active academic who can demonstrate an ability to publish in journals at the quality level of ABS 3, 4, and 4*; and their research should show capacity to impact policy and practice outside of academia. Furthermore, the successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to generate external research funding.

We will select an academic who enjoys teaching and undertaking administrative duties in a dynamic, multidisciplinary environment. While we encourage joint research collaborations, the successful candidate will show progress in developing their own research and teaching capacities (in line with the School’s ambitions); and they can expect to enjoy a full-range of support in furthering those aims; for example, by working with our ESRC Digital Futures at Work Research Centre (Digit), and through protected research time (see below), a range of opportunities to secure internal research funds and support, and a wide range of teaching and development training.

The successful applicant is expected to have an enthusiasm for teaching and in collaborating with colleagues to plan and deliver learning, as part of a team. They are expected to teach modules, broadly related to operations management and supply chain management; and to enrich our teaching portfolios by drawing upon their own research, as appropriate.  

Informal enquiries may be made to the Head of the Department of Management, Prof Frank Bond (F.Bond@sussex.ac.uk).

The University of Sussex values the diversity of its staff and students and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
