Edinburgh Napier Business School is proud to be one of the largest modern Business Schools in Scotland, at the leading edge of innovation, with a strong academic reputation in undergraduate, postgraduate, executive education, and business research.
We have strong and developing links with business through research-led teaching, practice-based classroom activities, student placements, business support, research and consultancy. Our academic staff maintain close links with industry, through professional body memberships, Knowledge Transfer Programmes, and both Work Based Learning and Live Project module supervision.
As such, we are now recruiting a Lecturer in Hospitality and/or Event Management to support and develop the delivery of these subject areas within the Tourism and Languages Subject Group.
The post will see you joining the Tourism and Languages Subject Group (under the leadership of Professor Lynn Minnaert), an ambitious, growing team consisting of academics who make significant contributions across all strands of endeavour. Joining the team will allow you to contribute to the area of Hospitality and/or Event Management. If you have related industry experience, then we would be particularly interested in speaking with you.
Your responsibilities will include developing, designing and delivering teaching and student-centred learning underpinned by academic scholarship and professional practice within your assigned areas of responsibility, using your experience to contribute to the support of our expanding MSc portfolio.
Further to this, you will be in an excellent position to influence the direction of our curriculum going forward and become involved in both module and programme leadership. You will also contribute to our international deliveries in, for example Hong Kong and Singapore, with the opportunity to contribute to our growing Global Online Portfolio.
Laterally, individual and collaborative research projects will allow you to contribute to the research profile within your School, leading to the production of high-quality research outputs and outcomes. An interest in and some evidence of research outputs in the areas of Sustainability, Data Analytics and/or Strategic Hospitality or Event Management would be of particular interest but not essential for the role.
