Associate Professors

Southampton Business School has an ambitious, quality-driven strategy, which will see us strengthen our position as a world-class business school in research, education and enterprise. We are currently looking for a number of new, outstanding academics to join us as Associate Professors within our expanding Business School in various disciplines.

Part of a world-renowned, Top-100 QS-ranked, Russell Group University, we have an outstanding reputation for research, education and enterprise. The Business School has recently secured AACSB accreditation, in addition to AMBA for our MBA. We are also aiming for EQUIS accreditation within the next 18 months. This year (2019) our CORMSIS research centre has been ranked within the QS world Top 50 for Statistics and Operational Research and 7th in the UK. 

If you’re interested in a role at 0.6FTE or above, you could play a crucial role in helping us to achieve our vision. What’s more, you will be working within a highly stimulating, challenging and dynamic environment. 

ABOUT YOU

As an Associate Professor, you will have experience of grant capture and management, as well as project management and a well-established personal reputation and professional standing. You will hold a PhD in a relevant area (or equivalent qualifications/experience), will have teaching experience and be able to provide evidence that you can produce high-quality research publications. Ideally, you will also have experience of working in a research project team.

WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOU

Based at our lively Highfield campus, you will have access to state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, as well as our sports complex, Hartley Library and Staff Social Centre. Having secured a £300m bond investment, we are committed to investing in the University’s future and long-term stability.

We offer some fantastic benefits including: 44 days leave per year; options for flexible working; excellent family leave arrangements (including maternity, paternity, adoption, parental and carers’ leave); a wide variety of on and off-campus arts and cultural facilities; and access to a range of staff discounts and offers at local shops, restaurants and service providers.

The UoS is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity to create an inclusive working environment. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds who share our ambition to be a university recognised for delivering world-class research and creating a community that values independent thought.
