Professorial Appointment – UCL Bartlett School of Construction & Project Management

Professor of Economics & Finance of the Built Environment,
Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management
(Reference HN246240) 


Competitive salaries

Consistently ranked among the world’s top universities, UCL is London’s Global University. The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management is a key part of The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, in scale and coverage unique in the UK, and one of the leading built environment faculties in the world. The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management has expanded dramatically over the last 10-15 years, and its range of expertise has grown during this period to cover all aspects of the management of projects, from governance to strategy, commercial matters to technology, economics and finance to people and organisation. A large proportion of its work involves systems and ICT and covering sectors beyond construction, while its expertise in infrastructure finance and management is world-class. 

As the result of significant success and expansion, the School now seeks to appoint a world-class Professor to play pivotal leadership role. Joining an internationally renowned group of colleagues, the appointee to the role will develop their own compelling research visions, exploring new avenues for interdisciplinary research, teaching and links to industry.

Applicants for this role will be considered for appointment as Director of School for an initial term of four years in addition to their Professorial responsibilities, and will demonstrate the strategic leadership capacity and collaborative, interdisciplinary outlook commensurate with the Directorship.

The appointee will provide inspirational leadership across The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management, and will be pioneering in delivering innovative and unorthodox research, teaching and thought leadership in construction, infrastructure investment, economics, real estate investment and finance. You will possess an outstanding research record in one or more of the following areas: Organisation of Construction, Infrastructure Investment and Finance, or Real Estate Investment and Finance.

As a renowned thought-leader in your discipline, you will inspire students and demonstrate an ability to communicate research findings to a wide range of audiences, and to promote and build on the interdisciplinary reach of the Faculty.
