Ideally your research portfolio should revolve around one or more of the following areas: Marketing communications, branding, research methods, consumer behaviour, digital marketing, social media marketing and corporate social responsibility. We offer you a collegiate environment for the development of your research and teaching and your position will be uniquely endowed with a research allowance of 50% of your time/workload. In addition to a strong research portfolio you must also have experience of teaching and be able to demonstrate innovative approaches at both UG and PG level, ideally in one or more of the following areas: Consumer behaviour, branding, digital marketing, strategic marketing, consumer analytics, marketing communications, research methods and international marketing.
