At Bournemouth University our vision is to create the most stimulating, challenging and rewarding university experience in a world-class learning community by sharing our unique fusion of excellent education, research and professional practice and inspiring our students, graduates and staff to enrich the world.
We were the first university to be commended by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) for the quality of student learning opportunities and in 2012 we won the Queens Anniversary Award for Higher Education. We are currently changing the face of the university through our new, transformational estates programme with a stunning series of iconic new buildings, and we are continuing to invest further in our intellectual capital by seeking to appoint high calibre teams and individuals to our award-winning Faculties.
The Faculty of Media & Communication at Bournemouth University is one of the largest of its kind in the world and has a global reputation for combining research and teaching practice. The Department of Corporate & Marketing Communications within the Faculty is central to this vision and offers undergraduate programmes in Advertising, Public Relations, Marketing Communications and Politics. Plus postgraduate programmes in Advertising, Corporate Communications, Political Communications and Political Psychology. We are active in research across all of these areas.
We are now seeking to appoint a talented and motivated Professor to join our highly regarded academic group. You will be qualified to Doctorate level or equivalent in a relevant field. You will have demonstrated global research leadership and you will be committed to a culture of academic excellence and continuous improvement. With a strong and established background in advertising, marketing communications or public relations and with an excellent publication track record, you will be able to demonstrate strategic academic leadership and expertise in research, education and professional practice. You will have the ability to generate external grant income with the leadership and drive to turn our strategic ambitions into reality. With highly developed interpersonal and communication skills, you will be able to interact effectively with a range of stakeholders including staff at all levels, students and external organisations, and to help lead and develop a rapidly growing, successful and diverse academic group.
