The University of Portsmouth is a dynamic and ambitious institution with a track record of success. One of only four universities in the south east of England to achieve a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework, it is also ranked 21st in the 2020 Guardian League Table University Guide, and 113th in the Times Higher Young University World Rankings.
Portsmouth Business School has a track record of sustained excellence in teaching and research as evidenced by the consistently very high student satisfaction scores in the National Student Survey, the excellent employability record of our graduates, and the results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) submission. The breadth and depth of our research was viewed by the REF2014 panel as having an outstanding and very significant impact in economic, social and policy-making terms, placing us in the top 10% for impact; 87.5% of our research environment was rated as internationally excellent; and 62% of our research as world-leading or internationally excellent. We offer a full range of degree programmes across business, management, accounting, finance and economics, including PhD and the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programme. We combine excellence in research and scholarship with considerable business and consultancy experience, and provide leadership in the development and dissemination of sustainable business and management practice.
We are seeking a dynamic individual with an appetite for research leadership. You will be highly regarded in your discipline and, with a proven academic profile, be able to provide strong leadership to support and develop further the research of the Faculty of Business and Law, including providing support for early career researchers.
