Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in People and Organisations
Swansea University - Department of People and Organisations
United Kingdom

Swansea University is a top 30 Research Intensive Higher Education Institution in the United Kingdom and recognises the importance of its academic staff in ensuring that it remains a high-ranking university. In order to sustain and improve upon its research status, there is a recognition that this can only come from the passion of its internationally renowned academic staff. To this end, academic staff who care about their research, teaching, learning, and the wider student experience are essential to our development as an institution. We are seeking enthusiastic,  collegial and capable individuals who wish to be a part of our intellectual community, to benefit the wider region of Swansea and South West Wales. Whilst a powerhouse for the regional economy we aim to broaden our scope through the recruitment of internationally excellent researchers who can make a positive difference to the lives of people on a global scale. 

The Department of Business within the School of Management is seeking to appoint academic staff within the People and Organisation Group. This small but friendly and productive community engages with social science understandings of the practice and context of management activity and the broader social, political and economic implications. Academic staff within our group have a variety of intellectual backgrounds (Human Resource Management, Sociology, Critical Theory, Philosophy) and engage in divergent fields of study ranging from Human Resource Management, Employment Relations and Organisational Behaviour to International Business and Political Economy. Our empirical research ranges from ethnographic and broadly qualitative approaches to large scale quantitative comparative research. We are keen to further develop our research capacity, which brings the empirical and theoretical elements of the research act together. In order to enhance and develop our research and teaching profile, we are keen to recruit academic staff from all stages of their academic career. It is expected that candidates have a demonstrable interest in social theory and social science research methods and how these approaches can contribute to a greater depth of analysis of business and management conduct.   

The positions are open to candidates from any academic discipline within the social sciences, including although not limited to,  social anthropology, cultural history, organisation studies, sociology and management (or cognate disciplines). Irrespective of intellectual background, what is expected is a clear critical engagement with the work of the group, and its focus on work, employment and society. Whilst we have a particular need to augment our teaching in Human Resource Management, International Business, Employment Relations and Critical Leadership Studies, our prime focus is securing good collegial scholars who are able to engage with the activities of the group, school and wider internal and external communities. The group is proud of its research led teaching and as such, engagement in module management, delivery and development that both reflect research interests and fits within our broader undergraduate and postgraduate programmes will be a requirement of the post.   

Closing Date: Sunday 8th September 2019
