Welcome to Queen Mary University of London and the School of Business and Management.
We are seeking to appoint up to ten academics to join the School of Business and Management at Queen Mary University of London, with opportunities at all levels, from Lecturer to Professor. We welcome applications from innovative researchers with a strong and current record of high quality international publications. In addition, for higher level appointments, a track record in securing grants or other external awards is highly desirable.
Queen Mary 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. Queen Mary is a highly internationalised university, but with deep roots and continuing engagement with East London communities.
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 Queen Mary. At the postgraduate 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 Queen Mary’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 promotes equal opportunities and we welcome applications regardless of age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion/belief and sexual orientation. Applications are particularly encouraged from traditionally under-represented groups. The School holds an Athena SWAN bronze award and is committed to introduce organisational and cultural practices that promote gender equality and build a better working environment for men and women.
Queen Mary is investing £62m in a new and purpose-built home for SBM, expected to be open 2022.
