Nottingham University Business School is an international leader in business, management and finance education and a pioneer in entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainability. The School ranks sixth in the UK for research power. Its teaching has been rated as ‘excellent’ by HEFCE and the School is also constantly striving to engage ever more meaningfully with practice to ensure relevance and impact. As part of its ongoing development, the School has recently recruited to a significant number of new posts and currently has around 140 academic staff. Apart from its UK based operations, the Business School also delivers programmes at the University of Nottingham Ningbo, China, the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus and in Singapore.

Applications are now invited for a number of permanent Professor of Practice posts, which would normally be offered on a part-time basis of 0.2-0.4 FTE. Applications are sought in all main Business School subject areas and the post holders will sit in one of the School’s eight academic divisions – see ?" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"> ss/about/research/divisions/index.html for further information.

We welcome applications from candidates with a good honours degree or equivalent professional qualification or experience, together with a distinguished record of professional achievement in a commercial or public sector organisation, to include extensive experience, a successful track record at executive level and a widely recognised credible reputation in industry and/or academia in their relevant field. Other qualities include a high-level analytical capability to facilitate conceptual thinking, innovation and creativity, together with evidence of the ability to transfer experience into excellent teaching through a record of previous teaching and/or engaging in a group setting and/or mentoring. Applications from those with previous experience of operating that the interface of academia and practice would be particularly welcomed. It is not a requirement that successful candidates will have been or plan to be research active, however, applications from those with active research interests are also encouraged. Some knowledge of the HE research landscape would be an advantage. It is more important that applicants can inspire all of those that they teach and/or mentor and can provide an excellent bridge between academia and practice.
