We are seeking a highly motivated, high-profile academic with the ability and interest in providing research, teaching and impact leadership in the field of International Business. IB is a broad discipline to candidates should ensure that their research fits in with our department members. A significant majority of scholars in our department have a background in economics and applied econometrics so we would welcome candidates with similar attributes but we would also consider scholars who could add an additional dimension to our team. Recently, Dr Chris Jones obtained funding via the Leverhulme Trust in relation to his research on the tax avoidance behaviour of MNEs. Hence, an academic with an interest in this area would be highly sort out but not necessarily essential. Candidates who have a background in using firm-level data, for example ORBIS, would also be of interest.

You will have a PhD and be able to demonstrate excellence in, and a passion for, your field of study, evidenced by a publication record that is developing or extensive in leading IB journals. You will influence the future direction of the Economics, Finance and Entrepreneurship department in areas of research and the development of taught programmes, PhD and DBA supervision and external engagement. 

For Lecturer posts, the minimum period for which initial appointments are made is normally five years, with the possibility of transfer to a continuing appointment.
