Surrey Business School

The University of Surrey is a global university with a world-class research profile and an enterprising and forward-thinking spirit committed to research and innovation excellence and to benefitting the economy, society and the environment. Our researchers practise their excellence against the backdrop of our broad spectrum of technological, human, health and social sciences, and their uncommonly strong linkages forged in an integrated campus culture of cooperation.

The Department of Business Transformation at Surrey Business School is seeking applications for a lecturer position. This is part of an ambitious effort to develop a world-class group of scholars who will make significant contributions to the various facets of management research on sustainable supply chains.  Our department is deeply engaged with local and international businesses which provide opportunity for meaningful interaction ensuring relevant research and teaching. We are looking for someone that supports our revenue generation in sustainability (e.g. via bids, Innovate UK funding, etc.). We actively collaborate with researchers across the University such as the Institute for Sustainability and the Centre for Environment and Sustainability.

Candidates should hold a relevant doctoral degree and have experience of supply chain management especially in terms of sustainability (environmental and social). Candidates should demonstrate their ability and interest to conduct novel empirical research on phenomena that are important to sustainable supply chains. We are particularly interested in candidates who have developed an understanding of how sustainability can contribute to decision making and insights in a business environment.

You will have demonstrated a strong potential for A-journal publications and have experience of teaching in higher education – preferably in a business school context.

Sustainability is core to the values of the University which enables researchers to develop in a supportive and exciting environment.

Informal enquiries should be directed in the first instance to Professor James Aitken, (, Head of the Business Transformation Department.
