About the opportunity

The University of Sydney Business School is one of the Asia Pacific region’s premier centres for engaged and innovative business education and research. With a highly international outlook, we have over 523 FTE (full-time equivalent) staff and more than 14,300 students (10,416 EFTSL) from diverse backgrounds enrolled in a comprehensive suite of programs including the high-profile MBA.

Building on our strong alliances with industry, government and the not-for-profit sector, the Business School is pursuing an ambitious strategic direction as a thought-leader in the development of ethical, responsible and sustainable responses to emerging global business challenges.

The Business School is now seeking to attract candidates of the highest calibre to provide leadership for the Discipline of Business Analytics. The successful candidate will have an outstanding record of achievement in scholarship and research at both national and international levels.

The successful candidate will be instrumental in guiding and directing the academics in the Discipline of Business Analytics to continue developing the group’s profile through securing sustained research funding; top quality publications and impactful research; providing high-quality teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels; and consistently working to improve methods of delivery and assessment.  Critically, the successful candidate will lead the Discipline through its next stage of development in both building on synergies within the discipline and linking with other areas of the Business School and the wider university in the application and interpretation of Data Science.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate leadership and management skills by successfully supporting and developing junior academic staff and research students; by strategically thinking about how to effectively recruit and retain academic staff; and by contributing to the efficient management and administration of the Business School.
