Are you passionate about delivering world-leading research, mentoring early career researchers (ECRs) and postgraduate researchers (PGRs)? Are you an experienced academic leader looking for a challenging senior leadership position? 

Leeds University Business School (LUBS) is a full-service business school built on the rigour of disciplinary strength while working in a pluralistic way to deliver impactful research and education. The School is internationally renowned for the quality of its research and enjoys a rapidly growing reputation for the impact of its research on society and the economy.

It is expected that you are an acknowledged world-leading academic with considerable experience in collaborative research, research mentorship, and PGR supervision. Delivering top-quality research outputs through sustained high-quality publications that contribute to impact and innovation, you will help us to increase our already-significant international presence and be a key player in our mission to make an exceptional impact on business and society globally, through research leadership, ECR mentoring and PGR supervision. With the ability to forge strong partnerships across subject areas and disciplines, you should have excellent organisational, collaborative and communication skills. 

As an international research-intensive university, we welcome students and staff from all walks of life and from across the world. We foster an inclusive environment where all can flourish and prosper, and we are proud of our strong commitment to student education and research and innovation.
