About the Role

The School of Business and Management (SBM) seeks to recruit an outstanding researcher and teacher to a Lectureship in Human Resource Management. This post offers an opportunity to make a major contribution to the development of human resource management research and teaching in a rapidly growing and distinctive management school.

About You

The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate the capacity to research and publish at an internationally excellent level or higher. Candidates for this lectureship will have completed a doctorate (or have a doctorate under examination) in a relevant subject and be able to demonstrate the capacity for international-level research achievement. The School is strongly committed to the development of all its staff and we will ensure that the successful candidate has the opportunity to develop their teaching, research and administrative skills.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute more broadly to management teaching, and more specifically to human resource management teaching, on our MSc and undergraduate programmes. We will consider applications from any area in human resource management but specifically welcome applications that contribute to diversity in the workplace research particularly around disability, race or ethnicity. Applicants will be expected to show how their research interests complement those within the School and the Centre for Research in Equality and Diversity (CRED) and how they can contribute to the development of management and human resource management programmes within the Department of People and Organisations.

About the School of Business and Management

The School of Business and Management is one of the eight schools in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The School has been undergoing a period of rapid growth, doubling our number of academic staff over the last five years. We presently have 90 academic staff. We have over 1,600 undergraduate business studies students plus approximately 800 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QMUL. At the post-graduate level we have approximately 800 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of around 80 doctoral students.

SBM’s core purpose is to promote social justice, sustainability and good governance in the management of private, public and voluntary organisations through our research and education. We are a distinctive School that takes a humanities and social science-led approach to our scholarship, and are now the largest school within QMUL’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, with its traditional strengths as a site of critical thinking in the humanities, law, history, geography and politics.

About the Department of People and Organisations

The Department of People and Organisations has 19 permanent academic staff. It is host to the CIPD accredited International Human Resource Management MSc and our academic staff regularly contribute to the School’s BSc programmes in management, teaching compulsory and elective modules. Our core mission as a Department is twofold: to lead with excellence in both education and research in multi-disciplinary fields pertaining to organisational behaviour, human resource management and employment relations and the effects at multiple levels, from the individual to the organisational and the institutional; and to promote in our practice and teaching the values of social justice, equality, diversion and inclusion and wellbeing. We are exploring the interaction between people and organisations in a world that is rapidly changing and facing new challenges around managing equality and diversity, intersectionality, leadership, learning and innovation as well as the challenges to individuals’ personal and professional development in diverse management contexts. We do so drawing on both mainstream and less mainstream research methods and approaches.

About Queen Mary

And we continue to live and breathe this spirit today, not because it’s simply ‘the right thing to do’ but for what it helps us achieve and the intellectual brilliance it delivers. We continue to embrace diversity of thought and opinion in everything we do, in the belief that when views collide, disciplines interact, and perspectives intersect, truly original thought takes form.


We offer competitive salaries, access to a generous pension scheme, 30 days’ leave per annum, a season ticket loan scheme and access to a comprehensive range of personal and professional development opportunities. In addition, we offer a range of work life balance and family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, and campus facilities including an on-site nursery at the Mile End campus.

The post is based at the Mile End Campus in London. It is full-time post (35 hours per week), permanent appointment, with an expected start date of August 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.
