Associate Dean of Research and Professor 

Accredited by both EQUIS and AACSB and listed as a Top 95 European Business School in the FT ranking, Nottingham Business School (NBS) at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is internationally recognised as one of the world’s leading business school, providing education and research that combines academic excellence with impact on business and society. 

NBS has a global reputation as a leader in experiential and personalised learning and with a thriving research culture, we are one of the largest business schools in the UK with resources to invest to distinguish us as a major international force in global business and management research and education. 

NTU has received national recognition, winning the THE University of the Year and Times and Sunday Times Modern University of the Year, as well as TEF Gold Rating.  

NBS research has already seen a step change since our strong performance in REF 2014. We now have one of the most vibrant research environments in the UK with three world-leading research clusters, namely Responsible and Sustainable Business; Human Resource Management; and Public Policy and Management. With other internationally renowned researchers joining us recently, we aim to further accelerate our research with a major programme of investment. 

We are seeking to make world-leading professorial appointments to establish a global force in business and management research. These roles will be supported by research intensive senior fellowships/lectureships.
In this role, you will lead the development of NBS research into a global force. You will collaborate with the PVC Research and other NTU ADRs to shape and implement NTU’s research strategy. You’ll also line manage NBS’ directors of PhD and DBA programmes and guide our research staff to excel in their roles.
