Role Description

The School for Business and Society (SBS) signals a distinctive approach towards conducting management and social policy research and teaching. We are uniquely placed to lead business and public policy action to tackle complex social and environmental grand challenges and have an ambitious vision to become the natural home within the UK for world-leading management scholars who work alongside experts in other academic disciplines as well as their own.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic Professor with expertise in international business, economic and social development, global and international supply chains and strategies. With an existing base of expertise in these areas, we are seeking to build greater capacity for research and scholarship. You will benefit from our distinctive new approach to interdisciplinary research and teaching in the UK, where we are uniquely placed to lead business and public policy action to tackle complex social and environmental societal problems.

We particularly welcome applications from female candidates, and candidates from minority ethnic backgrounds, who are under-represented at senior academic levels in the University.

The School
Our interdisciplinary approach enriches the vibrancy and relevance of our research and teaching.  At York, we place heavy emphasis on providing a high-quality student experience and have pioneered innovations in on-line learning and teaching related scholarship. We welcome applications from excellent candidates who embrace our vision and passion for advancing sustainable business, community and society. You will be joining a thriving community of academics who are leaders in their fields, and who are committed to excellence in research, teaching and outreach.
