The University of Greenwich Faculty of Business is seeking an Associate Professor in Management. The person appointed will act as interim Head of Department, and the salary on offer incorporates an addition to the normal Associate Professor pay range to reflect this additional responsibility.
We are seeking an energetic colleague who will lead the Department effectively by implementing strategies and plans to ensure academic excellence in the Department, the Faculty and the wider University community. Candidates with outstanding achievements in teaching and scholarship are encouraged to apply.
The Faculty of Business based in the Old Royal Naval College at Greenwich – a UNESCO World Heritage site – has a strong commitment to diversity and internationalism. This is reflected in our focus on inclusive curricula and equality of opportunity for learners. The Department of Human Resources and Organisational Behaviour has a portfolio of Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes in the areas of Business Management and Human Resource Management. Our teaching is informed by the international research agenda of our Centre for Research in Employment and Work (CREW) and multidisciplinary Diversity Interest Group. This new role will focus on developing effective learning environments and enhanced student support and guidance.
Applicants should be interested in promoting academic attainment through inclusive curricula and committed to developing student employability and ambition. We would particularly welcome candidates with expertise in the enhancement of pedagogic research and practice. They will lead curricula improvement through collaboration and consultation with students, colleagues, alumni, employers, and relevant professional bodies. They will actively support and promote continuing professional development of themselves and others (e.g. mentoring and training) in relation to pedagogy, the student experience and subject expertise. They will lead our engagement with established professional development networks in support of staff and students, including (e.g. CIPD/ SHRM/ HEA), positively impacting on colleagues and students.
This role offers opportunities for pedagogical development and research, and leadership experience in a supportive, student-focused environment. We welcome applications from all members of the academic community and value diversity.
While the post advertised is for a two year fixed term, the postholder will be encouraged and supported to undertake professional development so as to put them in a position to apply subsequently for permanent senior roles in the university.
