Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in Fashion Management? Are you able to use your expertise to support or complement our existing strengths in Fashion Marketing/Management, Fashion Enterprise, Fashion/Textile Design and Fashion Communication?

We are looking to appoint a Lecturer in the field of Fashion Management, with the core purpose of the role to provide leadership in the development of the School of Design as a centre for both research and teaching in this area.
