The world will change again today.

The newly-formed School of Management at the University of Bristol is single-minded in its focus to address critically the challenges that face individuals, organisations and society at large during the 21st Century.

Our community of international scholars is drawn from a wide range of complementary disciplines; their research already plays a significant role in shaping global policy and practice.

Our new School of Management is continuing its period of exciting growth which is creating further new opportunities. We are seeking high-calibre, original thinkers and innovators to help us pioneer a cutting-edge department and school.

Working in tandem with the University’s new strategy and Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus development, we will continue to take a unique interdisciplinary social sciences approach to tackling the big issues triggered by globalisation, inequality, environmental and social sustainability, disruptive technologies, innovation and entrepreneurialism.

This is a rare opportunity to be in the vanguard of unprecedented expansion at a truly world-class university.

We are looking for a high calibre Chair in Strategy to lead and grow research and teaching which are complementary to the existing strengths and future plans of the School. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the teaching of strategy to a diverse and international body of students and to engage with a range of research stakeholders.
