Role Description We welcome applications from people who are experienced in Human Resource Management (HRM) to join our team and contribute to the exciting growth of the Changing World of Work Group at Cranfield School of Management.

About the Role

This opportunity is within the Changing World of Work Group, which focuses on examining the implications of the changing work context on managing people and organisations. The Group provides thought leadership in areas such as generational diversity, emerging technologies and work, gender, leadership and inclusion, global mobility, HR and technology, organisation design, flexible and agile working and employee engagement, and brings together expertise in Human Resource Management (HRM), Employment Relations, Organisational Behaviour (OB) and Diversity. This is a flourishing group that is particularly active in relation to producing high quality applied research. The Group has ambitious plans including the development of a digital learning pathway in HRM, and an apprenticeship programme focused on the Senior People Leader Level 7 Standard. The role will report directly to the Group Head, Professor Emma Parry.

As a Lecturer working within this group you will be responsible for delivering high quality teaching in HRM and Research Methods. In addition you will support research projects including those within the UK Defence context and in the areas of the future of work and the future workforce. You may also be asked to support other teaching and research projects with Defence and for other clients. You will have the opportunity to progress your research and scholarship in this field.  This post will be offered on either an Education & Scholarship career pathway, or a Research & Teaching career pathway depending on your track record, focus and preference.

This post is initially offered on a fixed-term basis, but we would aim to extend this term based upon continued growth in demand.

About You

You will be educated to doctoral level in a relevant area, and you will be able to demonstrate experience of teaching, training or executive development in HRM.  You will be able to show recognition of your expertise, through, for example publications, conference presentations, professional involvement, industry demands, or similar. For higher levels we would expect some experience of leading projects or programmes. With excellent communication skills, you will be able to collaborate effectively with students, executive learners, academics, practitioners and policy makers.  You will be respectful towards others and collegiate in approach. Experience of teaching and leading modules or programmes at post-graduate level and of developing digital modules is preferred.

In return, you will have exciting opportunities for career development, whilst joining a supportive team and environment and contributing to this growing area of importance within the School.
