Job profile Apply online


The School of Business and Management (SBM) seeks to recruit an outstanding researcher and teacher to a lectureship in International Business and/or Strategy. We are particularly interested in candidates with a background in comparative international business, economic policy studies, strategy and entrepreneurship in developing countries, and/or industrial development in emerging economies.  Experienced candidates with a strong publications record are encouraged to apply.  All applicants should have the ability to teach and supervise effectively across our main undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

School of Business and Management (SBM)

The School of Business and Management (SBM) is a research-led 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.

The School has been undergoing a period of rapid growth, doubling our number of academic staff over the last five years. We presently have around 75 academic and 16 administrative staff, with more appointments in process. We have over 1,000 undergraduate business management students, plus approximately 800 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QMUL. At the post-graduate level we have around 450 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of 50+ doctoral students.

SBM 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.

Lecturer in International Business/Strategy

The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate the capacity to research and publish at an internationally excellent level or higher (at least 3 in the recent REF). They will be expected to contribute to teaching on our MSc and undergraduate programmes in areas such as Strategy, Strategic Management, and International Business.

Candidates for the lectureship should have a completed doctorate (or have a doctorate under examination) by August 2017 and be able to demonstrate the capacity for international-level research achievement. It would be desirable, but not essential, if applicants were able to demonstrate evidence of research activities that align with the interests of existing SBM academic staff.

The post is full time and permanent. Starting salary will be in the range £40,182 - £50,030 per annum inclusive of London Allowance and include 30 days annual leave, USS pension scheme membership, and interest-free travel season ticket loan.

Your application should include a cv plus a brief outline of your research plans and evidence of your teaching (for example recent evaluations or other recognition). As part of the selection process you will be asked to present to members of the School on your research and on your teaching. The post is available any time after August 2017.

Enquiries can be addressed to:

Dr Martha Prevezer, Senior Lecturer in Strategy and Innovation

Professor Frances Bowen, Head of School
