The University of Greenwich, Faculty of Business is seeking an Associate Professor in International Business. We are seeking an energetic colleague who will implement teaching and learning improvement strategies and plans to ensure academic excellence in the Department, the Faculty and the wider University community. Candidates with outstanding achievements in teaching and scholarship are encouraged to apply who have an interest in working with our diverse student body. 

The Faculty of Business based in the Old Royal Naval College at Greenwich – a UNESCO World Heritage site – has a strong commitment to diversity and internationalism. This is reflected in our focus on inclusive curricula and equality of opportunity for learners. The Department of International Business and Economics has a portfolio of Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes in the areas of International Business and Economics. Our teaching is informed by the international research agenda developed within three faculty research centres, which IBE staff are affiliated to: Centre for Business Network Analysis (CBNA), Greenwich Political Economy Research Centre (GPERC) and Centre for Research in Employment and Work (CREW).  In addition the department has an interest in research in Business and Economics Education (BEE) through the developing MERIT Hub (Measuring Education’s Real Impact from Innovative Teaching) with those interested in economics education supporting the University to evaluate teaching, learning and access initiatives. This new role will focus on developing effective learning environments and enhanced student support and guidance or quality enhancement within the department.

Applicants should be interested in promoting academic attainment through inclusive curricula and committed to developing student employability and ambition. We would particularly welcome candidates with expertise in the enhancement of pedagogic research and practice. They will lead curricula improvement through collaboration and consultation with students, colleagues, alumni, employers, and relevant professional bodies. They will actively support and promote continuing professional development of themselves and others (e.g. mentoring and training) in relation to pedagogy, the student experience and subject expertise. They will lead our engagement with established professional development networks in support of staff and students, including (e.g. RES/Economics Network/HEA), positively impacting on colleagues and students.  This post holder will have line management responsibilities for the department and will be a member of the IBE SMT.

This role offers opportunities for pedagogical development and research, and leadership experience in a supportive, student-focused environment. We welcome applications from all members of the academic community and value diversity.  For an informal conversation about the role, contact the current Head of Department Professor Denise Hawkes (d.hawkes@gre.ac.uk)
