Job Description

King’s Business School is the ninth and newest faculty at King’s College London. We are looking to recruit an outstanding candidate, with an interest in Entrepreneurship or Innovation Studies to join the Strategy Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship Group.

The Strategy, International Management and Entrepreneurship Group has a strong research reputation in developing theory, methods, and knowledge to advance our understanding of business, innovation, and entrepreneurial activity in an international institutional context. Research comprises three core themes: (1) international business, and comparative business and management, (2) global strategies for sustainability and corporate social responsibility, (3) knowledge-intensive firms, innovation, and appropriability, and (4) entrepreneurship. Not only has the group built extensive research networks through international collaborations, but it has a strong commitment to developing research impact through links with relevant policymakers and practitioners. Group members regularly publish in leading journals in management, international business, entrepreneurship, and innovation.

The School places a premium on international levels of scholarship and research excellence, and you will be expected to play a role in the standing and development of the Group in this regard.

The successful candidate will have a strong commitment to high quality research in entrepreneurship and/or innovation studies and will be able to contribute excellent teaching to the development of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Example teaching commitments are introduction to entrepreneurship, and clinical and health entrepreneurship. You should hold a PhD in a relevant field, have a high-quality track record of publications in leading refereed journals and in securing research income.

The job is offered on a full time indefinite basis.

We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as they are currently under-represented within the faculty at this level.
