The appointee will have an outstanding international research reputation.
This appointment is central to the future development of the Group, initially formed in 2017, and to the drive to further enhance ULMS’ position as a world-class Management School.

EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA accredited, and a pioneer in on-line education, ULMS is an international management school that benefits from Liverpool’s standing as a founding member of the Russell Group of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities and from its location in a city known the world over for its culture and commerce. With a world famous skyline, excellent transport links and regional beauty, Liverpool is highly ranked on quality of life in the UK, while remaining one of Britain’s most affordable cities.
In recent years the School has received substantial investment, including a new extension adjacent to the Georgian quarter of Liverpool that is home to state-of-the-art facilities. Its 230 academic staff, including over 40 full Professors, enjoy a highly collegial and interdisciplinary environment and the School is at the forefront of the University’s commitment to research excellence, succeeding against its vision of global connectivity, transformational research and education and knowledge leadership.
Salary will be internationally competitive, commensurate with the appointee’s standing and potential. The successful candidate will be expected to be internationally recognised in their field, bringing outstanding research contributions.
Formal interviews will take place on Tuesday, 25th May 2022, with presentations on Monday 24th May 2022, and required meetings taking place in advance.
