The School of Business and Management (SBM) seeks to recruit an outstanding educator to a lectureship in accounting. This is a Teaching and Scholarship focused position, which offers an exceptional opportunity for a passionate teacher to shape student education and experience within our rapidly growing and distinctive management School.

Queen Mary University of London (QMUL)

QMUL has been recognised as a top 100 university in the Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings, and placed 9th in the UK among multi-faculty institutions in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. It is the fourth largest college in the University of London and is growing rapidly through sustained investments in facilities on one of London’s largest campuses (Mile End), excellent research and improving the student experience. QMUL is a highly internationalised university, but with deep roots and continuing engagement with East London communities.

School of Business and Management

The School has been undergoing a period of rapid growth, doubling our number of academic staff over the last five years. We presently have 85 academic staff, with more appointments in process. We have over 1100 undergraduate Business Studies students plus approximately 600 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QMUL. At the post-graduate level we have around 600 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of around 60 doctoral students.

We are a distinctive School that takes a humanities and social science led approach to our scholarship. We are a non-departmentalised School within QMUL’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), with its traditional strengths as a site of critical thinking in the humanities, law, history, geography and politics.

We recently re-committed to our core purpose, that is, to promote social justice, sustainability and good governance in the management of private, public and voluntary organisations through our research and education. We organise our activities thematically, cross-cutting traditional divisions between disciplinary departments.
