The Department of Strategy & Marketing in the University of Sussex Business School is looking to recruit a fixed term lectureship in the area of International Business. The International Business group within the department (which consists of three main disciplines: marketing, international business, and entrepreneurship) is focused on emerging markets, international supply chains, global strategy, and the interface between international business, development and institutions. As a Department we host three research mobiliser groups: consumer well-being, international business, and responsible business. 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 and hosts a range of vibrant and popular undergraduate and postgraduate programs.

We are seeking scholars interested in all international business topics and welcome candidates from all ontological and methodological approaches.

The University of Sussex has a strong tradition of policy work and outreach and we therefore welcome applications from candidates with potential to have a policy and/or practical impact.
