Job description

The Department of Strategy & Marketing, University of Sussex Business School, is looking to recruit a full-time Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation. An interest in responsible enterprise and/or sustainability would be a distinct plus. 

The Department consists of three main disciplines: marketing, international business, and entrepreneurship and innovation. Scholars within the Entrepreneurship and Innovation group focus on a range of subjects related to strategy, creative industries, policy, sustainability, well-being and social change. Candidates will be expected to be a member of and possibly lead the group’s core mobiliser group focused on Responsible Business. 

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 Business School was recently also ranked 1st in the UK for External Research Income by the Chartered Association of Business Schools. The entrepreneurship and innovation group within the Department features a mix of research and teaching focused staff. The group’s work has been published in leading discipline journals including Business & Society, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Product Innovation Management, Public Administration Review, Research Policy, Strategic Management Journal, Work, Employment & Society among many others. 

We welcome candidates from all ontological and methodological approaches. We are looking for colleagues with exciting research pipelines that either complements or adds to the interests of our current faculty in entrepreneurship and innovation: https://www.sussex.ac.uk/business-school/people-and-departments/strategy-and-marketing/entrepreneurship-innovation. 

The successful candidate will be an engaged senior academic looking to be part of a growing group of scholars (we are presently also seeking a lecturer and senior lecturer as part of a growth plan) who enjoys working in a dynamic, collegial, multidisciplinary environment.
