Southampton Business School – Department of Human Resource Management (HRM) & Organisational Behaviour (OB)

Lecturer in HRM & OB (Level 5)

Applications will be considered from 0.6FTE and above 

Southampton Business School (SBS) has an ambitious, quality-driven strategy, which will see us strengthen our position as a world-class Business School in research, education and enterprise. As an AMBA and AACSB accredited Business School, we are seeking to recruit a number of outstanding individuals for key research and teaching positions. Applications will be considered from candidates interested in both full-time and part-time (0.6 FTE) hours. 

SBS is at the heart of University of Southampton, a top 100 university (QS & U.S. News world rankings) and a founding member of the Russell Group, with a global reputation for academic excellence. We offer a stimulating, challenging and dynamic working environment for all our staff and we offer successful undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, a large PhD portfolio, as well as an MBA and a DBA.  

The Department of HRM and OB at SBS brings together a multidisciplinary team of internationally renowned academics with teaching and research interests in the fields of human resource management and organisational behaviour, as well as in associated fields such as industrial/employment relations, employment studies, organisation studies, labour economics, and work sociology. The Department has a thriving undergraduate and postgraduate portfolio, which is built on the staff’s research strengths and expertise. We lead the MSc HRM programme, and contribute to several other programmes offered by SBS. 

Recent research topics of the HRM and OB group members include alternative theorising of leadership, careers and skills, digital media, technologies and people, corporate social responsibility, sustainability and ethics, entrepreneurship and self-employment, human resource development, independent professionals, individual and organisational responses to hardship, labour market institutions and workplace trade unions, new ways of working, power in technological change programmes, work/non-work interface, work quality and well-being, and workforce diversity and inequalities. Members of the Department have published in leading academic outlets, such as the British Journal of Management, British Journal of Industrial Relations, Gender, Work & Organization, Human Relations, Human Resource Management, Human Resource Management Journal, The International Journal of Human Resource Management, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Business Research, Journal of Management, Journal of Vocational Behavior, Organization Studies, Public Management Review, Research Policy, and Work, Employment and Society. 

You will have a PhD (or equivalent degree/professional qualifications and experience), as well as a growing academic reputation in your specialist discipline, demonstrated by a record of high-quality published research. Candidates with a background in quantitative methods and HRM-related topics are particularly encouraged to apply, although we are, of course, open to applications from people with strong expertise in different research methodologies and backgrounds – our Department is, and will remain, a pluralist and methodologically diverse one. Visible, engaged and collegiate, you will have experience of teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level and be passionate about developing and disseminating successful learning techniques. 

As a Lecturer, you will play a central role in furthering the research and teaching of the Department. You will teach at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level, and act as a leader and ambassador for us across management and engagement activities. Whether developing your own teaching approaches, embarking on new research projects, or contributing to the effective administration of our Department, you will enjoy scope to innovate and make a significant impact.
