The New College of Humanities at Northeastern wishes to appoint an Assistant Professor in International Business. The appointee will lead the teaching of International Business at the College and be responsible for developing the College’s provision in the area of Business.
We wish to appoint a specialist in International Business. Preference may be given to candidates with active interests in the relationship of International Business to one or more of the following areas: software and/or technology; employment contexts; diversity and inclusion. An interest in the ethics of business will be an asset.
Core duties will include leading a team of Business instructors in delivering teaching to undergraduate students from across the Northeastern Global Network, and in due course, building the College’s provision in the area of Business.
We particularly encourage applications from those with an interest in innovative teaching, learning and assessment; those with experience of supporting a wide variety of students; and those belonging to groups underrepresented in UK higher education. We are open to appointing on a reduced fraction/job-share basis subject to our business needs.
In the first instance, the appointee will work in a multidisciplinary team under the Dean for Education in Business and Economics. In a typical academic year, the team includes approximately 15 academic staff, including instructors in Economics, Business, Marketing, Mathematics, and Finance. The quality of teaching in the Faculty is high, as evidenced, for example, through scores in the National Student Survey and External Examiner reports. Research is supported by the College’s central research structures, and the Faculty is represented on the College’s active Research Committee.
