The University of Greenwich is a leading London university whose core purpose is to inspire society through the discovery, application and dissemination of knowledge. The University provides high-quality educational activities, research and enterprise. The University comprises over 38,000 students across four faculties, namely Business; Architecture, Computing and Humanities; Engineering and Science & Education and Health.

The Business School comprises five departments and eight research groups. Serving a community of 4,000 FTE students on campus at the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Business School’s mission is to support students to reach their full academic potential, to conduct innovative and impactful research and to drive engagement between academia and business. The Department of International Business and Economics’ overall mission is to contribute to a greater understanding of the economy and international business, construed in the broadest and richest sense. It is committed to developing our students' employability as managers and good citizens of the future.

The Business School is now seeking to appoint an exceptional individual to the position of Professor and Head of the Department of International Business and Economics (IBE) to strengthen the Department’s performance in student academic performance, student experience and employment outcomes; and to increase the quality, amount and impact of the research conducted in the Department.

Candidates with a research focus will be expected to possess an international profile in their academic area, with a track record of publishing in journals with international impact, strong understanding and evidence of leading and developing programmes of study, and engagement with business to further the impact of academic activity.

Candidates with a teaching and learning focus will be expected to have demonstrated international impact in curriculum design and pedagogical innovation, and to have published in these areas, as well as demonstrating a track record of advanced scholarship in their discipline area. All candidates will also be expected to demonstrate aptitude and experience in leading and managing academic teams, though not necessarily as a Head of Department.
