The School of Business and Management (SBM) seek to recruit an inspirational teacher and educational leader to a Lectureship in Business and Society. Experienced candidates with a strong university teaching record are encouraged to apply. All applicants should have the ability to teach and supervise effectively across undergraduate and postgraduate programmes within the Department of Business and Society in SBM.        

Queen Mary University of London (QMUL)

QMUL was 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. QMUL is a highly internationalised university, but with deep roots and continuing engagement with East London communities.

School of Business and Management

The School of Business and Management is one of the eight schools in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. 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. We have over 1200 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 approximately 600 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of around 70 doctoral students.

SBM’s core purpose is to promote social justice, sustainability and good governance in the management of private, public and voluntary organisations through our research and education. We are a distinctive School that takes a humanities and social science led approach to our scholarship, and are now the largest 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.

Department of Business and Society

Our core values are social justice and inclusivity, and environmental sustainability. Departmental colleagues are committed to collective excellence in teaching and research and bring a wide range of expertise from different disciplines. In our teaching and research we focus on:

  • How business and management influences society – for example, in economic development, through innovation in environmentally beneficial products and systems, through responsible management practices, by management in the non-profit and public sectors and in businesses in the creative and cultural industries;
  • How society shapes business and management – for example, through law and regulation but also through changing norms and expectations for equality and diversity and environmental sustainability.
