Role Description

About the role

Your role and responsibilities will be based on your experience and an agreed profile of your Cranfield academic career in research and teaching.

We expect you to be publishing at an international level and have impact teaching with postgraduate and post-experience learners. We do not have undergraduates at the University. In addition, this role initially involves managing the UK’s first and only Level 7 marketing apprenticeship. Our apprenticeship learners average age of entry is 38, and they hold senior marketing roles.

You will be joining a collaborative faculty group that balances teaching with rigorous and relevant research that works close to practice and in an exclusively postgraduate environment, often with post-experience learners. You will be engaging with senior managers and will have the opportunity to develop your expertise in executive education if you have not already done so. We are looking for collaborative people to join a close-knit unit to contribute to the development of Cranfield’s thought leadership in Marketing.

About You

You will either have a PhD or DBA in a relevant academic area or equivalent experience. In exceptional cases, we will consider people without doctoral qualifications, but it would be expected that you will embark on that degree upon joining. Your expertise can arrive from a combination of academic roles or an industry-based leadership role that demonstrates thought leadership in Marketing.

You are expected to demonstrate an impact on the ongoing professionalisation of specialist roles in this field. You will have an academic or equivalent industry-based career with the requisite leadership and management experience. A PhD and publications track record are highly desirable. However, we can consider other means of demonstrating a contribution to scholarly thought and managerial practice. We are seeking people to join the team who are as passionate as we are about Marketing.

Cranfield values industrial experience, and therefore any practical experience in relevant contexts is a valued bonus.
