Cranfield School of Management (SOM) is recognised as one of the most prestigious business schools in the UK and is a Financial Times top 40 school triple accredited by EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB. It is known for its excellence in leadership development and its ability to transform learning and research into management practice. It has an excellent academic reputation in the field of Logistics and Supply Chain Management (SCM) and is currently ranked the No 1 University outside North America and No 11 worldwide by SCM World.

The Logistics, Procurement & SCM Group is the largest Group within the SOM and it is one of the largest groups of faculty in Europe. The MSc in Logistics & SCM is one of the oldest Master programmes of its kind in the world and we have successfully launched a new MSc in Procurement and SCM whilst also running various executive programmes. Members of the Group are research active and are also very successful in research and consulting income generation, running projects funded by leading funding bodies and industry.

With the growth in our current activities we are looking to appoint an academic member to support this. You will have completed (Senior Lecturer) or be close to completing (Lecturer) your Doctorate in logistics, supply chain management or a related field.

For the Lecturer post, you must have a growing track record in teaching ideally in both graduate and executive education and you will have a developing portfolio with papers for submission to high-quality journals.

For the Senior Lecturer post you must have a strong track record in teaching ideally in both graduate and executive education and you will have publications already in high-quality journals.

This individual will be expected to contribute to our core activities including the delivery of teaching in the UK and overseas. We are looking for applicants with expertise in the logistics and SCM, and we would welcome applications from individuals with key expertise in freight transport, procurement, supply chain modelling (including simulation).

Cranfield academics have an enthusiasm for their subject area; they demonstrate a high level of analytical capability and the potential to produce publications in high quality journals. Working as an individual or part of the wider team they will have the ability to engage with staff of all levels supporting the senior management team to achieve the overall objectives of the group.
