Cranfield School of Management is one of the oldest business schools in Europe and a world leader in management education and research, holding triple accreditation by AACSB International, AMBA and EQUIS. Dedicated to creating responsible management thinking, breaking ground at the management-technology interface, improving business performance and inspiring the next generation of business leaders, the school works to change the lives of its students and executives by encouraging innovation and creative thinking, as well as the drive to succeed and make a real impact on their organisations. The school attracts over 5,000 masters, doctoral and executive development learners each year from over 100 countries. Learn more about the School’s current research activities, taught programmes and impact here: Learn more about SOM.

As sustainability becomes an increasingly critical area of business management, the School of Management is recruiting a senior faculty member into its Sustainability Group, to contribute to an ambitious research agenda, as well as an extensive teaching programme that embeds sustainability into the School’s masters level and executive education. Find out more about the Sustainability Group here.

We are seeking a colleague who is genuinely motivated by the opportunity to achieve better outcomes for society and our natural world by influencing and changing ‘the business of business.’ You will have a vision for how organizations can, and should, respond to the urgent social and environmental challenges facing society, the ability to communicate that vision, lead change and make things happen quickly, and a determination to succeed which is grounded in a personal purpose aligned to this role. You should also be enthusiastic about engaging with senior managers, and bring either prior industry experience and/or experience in executive education to the role.

You will be educated to doctoral level in a relevant subject, with expertise in the field of sustainability as it relates to the management of organizations. Candidates with expertise at the interface of consumer behaviour/ psychology and sustainable business would be a particularly good fit with the Group.

The successful applicant will have exciting opportunities for career development in this key senior position, and to be at the forefront of world leading research and education, working alongside a friendly faculty group in a close-to-practice academic, postgraduate environment.

At Cranfield we value Diversity and Inclusion, and aim to create and maintain a culture in which everyone can work and study together harmoniously with dignity and respect and realise their full potential

Our equal opportunities and diversity monitoring has shown that that women and minority ethnic groups are currently underrepresented within the university and so we actively encourage applications from eligible candidates from these groups.

We actively consider flexible working options such as part-time, compressed or flexible hours and/or an element of homeworking, and commit to exploring the possibilities for each role.  To find out more, please visit
