The University of Bradford is a technology university with great strengths. Our ambition is to build on our heritage and areas of strength, with a vision to be a world leader in:

This is an exciting time to join the Faculty of Management and Law at the University of Bradford. As a leader in teaching, research and knowledge exchange, we have more than 50 years’ experience of pushing the boundaries, regionally, nationally and internationally. We are proud to have ‘triple accreditation’ from the three leading international bodies, AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. We perform well in the Financial Times (FT) rankings and continue to build on our research strengths in readiness for REF 2020. Our activities cover a full spectrum of business disciplines as evidenced through our academic programmes at UG, PGT and PGR. We teach undergraduate, masters and doctoral students, deliver executive education and consultancy and create new knowledge through our research. We are passionate about Making Knowledge Work.

The School of Management has a strong reputation in Logistics, Supply Chain and Technology Management, and is seeking to develop this further with the appointment of a Senior Lecturer in Data Analytics, ideally with applications in Supply Chain Management to support existing and new programmes. Applicants who have experience of module and programme development as well as doctoral supervision are especially sought. The candidate(s) will be expected to lead and contribute to the development and direction of Logistics and Supply Chain Management programmes at UG, MSc and MBA levels. We are especially interested in those wishing to develop their knowledge and experience of delivering a digital learning experience. 

The candidate must possess a Doctorate in a relevant field. The successful individual will be expected to have a research track record at 3* or 4* CABS journal level and continue to be research active with some grant capture activity and ambition. The candidate will possess strong Operations Research (OR) background with quantitative data analytical skills as well as knowledge expertise covering logistics and/or supply chain management.
Specifically, the candidate must have technical skillsets such as data analytics, modelling and simulation and have prior knowledge of using software packages such as SAS and open source tools such as R and Python for teaching within a supply chain management context.

The post holder will be expected to take up the role of Course Director for a new MSc programme that is under development and provide curriculum leadership to grow and develop the data analytics, logistics and supply chain management teaching area through a research-led pedagogy. The post holder will also be expected to work closely with established partners. This role is aligned with the University Strategy that promotes the development of international academic partnerships, developing and expanding commercial links to support our mission, vision and values. Therefore, the ability to persuade, influence, motivate and establish credibility with a wide range of stakeholders is essential.

Appointment to this role will be made as a Lecturer OR Senior Lecturer dependent on experience.
