Role Description

The University of York exists for public good. Enquiring minds, inspirational teaching, pioneering research, global ambition, local commitment, and social purpose are the foundations which underpin that commitment at our university.

Following a period of sustained growth, and as part of significant further investment, University of York Management School (UYMS) are seeking to appoint a number of academic appointments at all academic levels. These appointments continue our 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.

For further information on these appointments and our ambitious vision, please see

We strongly believe that fostering disciplinary excellence within interdisciplinary teams, focusing on major social and economic problems that Management can help address, will enhance both the public good and academic excellence of our work.  We also believe that it will enrich the vibrancy and relevance of our teaching.  At York, we place heavy emphasis on providing a high-quality student experience within a collegial environment. 

To attract the most outstanding candidates, we are interested in scholars whose work crosses the full spectrum of management sub-disciplines but with a focus on one or more of our four broad interdisciplinary themes: Equality, Justice & Ethics; Risk, Innovation & the Economy; Sustainability & Resilience; Management and the Humanities.

Although we welcome applications from all areas of management and business, we are particularly keen to receive applications from candidates with discipline-specific expertise in any of the following areas:

  • Accounting and Finance
  • Operations Management/Supply Chain Management
  • International Business and/or Marketing

Please direct informal enquiries for the Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Reader roles to Richard Waft ( For candidates interested in the Chair opportunities, please contact the Dean of the School, Prof Mark Freeman (

Closing Date: 30 May 2021
Interviews will take place during June/July 2021

We particularly welcome applications from female candidates, and candidates from minority ethnic backgrounds, who are under-represented in academic roles at the institution. #EqualityatYork

The University is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community  – a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds.
