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 Leadership and Innovation Management. We encourage applicants with quantitative research interests and expertise that focus on managing innovation, change, and promoting resilience in the workplace. Any relevant, professional accreditations (e.g., from the BPS or CIPD) are desirable but not essential.

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, as seen in our ESRC Digit Centre, 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.

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.
