We provide a highly successful portfolio of teaching programmes including undergraduate, masters, MBA and PhD.

The Strategy and Organisation Division consists of a diverse group of scholars specialising in people-focused aspects of management and organisations. Our research covers the spectrum from applied to theoretical, from qualitative to quantitative methods, and from start-ups to established firms. With world- leading scholars publishing in top academic journals and a flourishing programme of seminars, conferences and workshops, we offer a lively research and intellectual culture. We publish in leading generalist journals, including Academy of Management journals, Academy of Management Review, Strategic Management Journal, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Management Studies, and Organization Science, and leading entrepreneurship and innovation journals such as Research Policy, Journal of Business Venturing, and Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice. We sustain a collegial and developmental culture and strive to ensure teaching-focused colleagues have similar access to successful careers as those who combine research and teaching. We offer a diverse set of teaching programmes, which seek to engage, inform, and enliven our students' passion to become change agents for a better future. We are an international team, with on-going collaborations with leading universities from around the world.

The Division is a vibrant and collegial academic community of almost 50 members of staff and successful candidates will want to play a full role in the Division's thriving and ambitious culture. The team of colleagues is not only high-achieving but highly supportive. Colleagues are active contributors to the academic community through editing journals, taking up leadership positions in professional bodies, organising workshops and conferences. One of the top priorities of the Division is supporting and mentoring new and/or rising academics; all senior staff in the Division are actively involved in these activities.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding scholar, with a record of achieving excellence in research and a proven teaching ability. Successful candidates will be expected to deliver a sustained record of world-leading research published in elite journals, funding capture and practical impact, and contribute high-quality teaching to undergraduate and postgraduate students. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will take up the role in September 2024.
