Role Description

Cranfield School of Management has been educating business leaders for the past fifty years and has an impressive reputation with practitioners. We are a Financial Times top 40 school and triple accredited by EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB. We are looking to recruit a talented and committed Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Sustainability to join the Marketing & Sustainability group.

The School has a strong emphasis on practice in research and teaching. Our faculty enjoy working closely with managers in organisations across a range of sectors via our specialist Masters programmes, MBAs, open and tailored executive courses, best-practice networks and research. The School’s Marketing & Sustainability group is active in all of these areas. The school has a long history of thought leadership in such sustainability-related topics as sustainability-oriented innovation, sustainable entrepreneurship, sustainable supply chains, sustainable marketing, sustainability strategy, corporate governance and sustainable investing.

We are keen to build our teaching and research capacity in sustainability-oriented innovation, sustainability strategy and sustainable marketing; however, we equally encourage applicants with other sustainability-related specialisms who believe they would enjoy Cranfield’s practice-focused culture.  The candidate would need to be enthusiastic about engaging with senior managers, and would have the opportunity to develop their expertise in executive education in due course if they have not already done so.

The group equally has a strong research ethos and all members of the Marketing & Sustainability group are actively publishing in high-quality journals, often drawing on the excellent research access that Cranfield’s client base provides, and feeding that learning back into the classroom. The team member will need to be excited about joining a collaborative faculty group that balances teaching with rigorous and relevant research, and working in a close-to-practice academic, postgraduate environment.

The candidate would be expected to contribute to teaching and supervision on the group’s specialist Masters in Management & Corporate Sustainability programme as well as on sustainability modules across other postgraduate programmes. You would be mentored and supported in this role.

Reporting to Head of the Centre for Marketing & Sustainability, you will already have a doctorate in a relevant discipline (or be close to submission). For the Lecturer post, you will ideally have one or more papers in revision with high-quality journals. For the Senior Lecturer post, you will have a developing publications pipeline and some existing publications in high-quality journals, teaching experience, and preferably some programme or executive course leadership experience. Cranfield also values industrial experience and therefore any practical experience of working in sustainability, marketing, operations, consultancy, or related contexts can be a valued bonus.

For an informal discussion, please contact Professor Emma Macdonald, Professor of Marketing on (E); emma.macdonald@cranfield.ac.uk or Dr Daniel Prior, Reader in Sales and Key Account Management and Director Designate of the Executive MBA Programme on (E); daniel.prior@cranfield.ac.uk or (T); +44 (0) 1234 75 1122.

At Cranfield we value Diversity and Inclusion, and aim to create and maintain a culture in which everyone can work and study together harmoniously with dignity and respect and realise their full potential.
