Aston Business School is triple accredited (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA).  In the 2021 REF almost four-fifths of Aston University’s research is either ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent.  Aston has excellent teaching (awarded a Gold rating in the 2016/17 TEF) and business engagement (awarded the Small Business Charter Gold Award).  In 2020 we were the Guardian’s University of the Year and the THE’s Entrepreneurial University of the Year.  We were again shortlisted for the University of the Year in 2021-22.

The Work and Organisation Department hosts three main clusters – HRM, Organisational Behaviour/Work Psychology and Social Responsibility and Sustainability.  We are also developing a new research unit focused on healthy work and workplaces.

You should possess a good first degree, a doctorate in a relevant discipline, an established research profile with a signficant body of internationally excellent publications in HRM and OB/Work Psychology-related journals, as well as a developed international network.  You must be very experienced in securing and leading funding from different sources which deliver impact, and in undertaking effective doctoral research supervision.   You should have an effective and innovative teaching practice at all levels, and at least Fellowship of the HEA (or equivalent).  Chartered membership of the CIPD/BPS, industry experience and possession of entrepreneurial skills are highly desirable.  For OB/Work Psychologists, being a Chartered Occupational Psychologist is especially welcome, or a Chartered Psychologist (CPsychol) as a minimum.

The post-holders will report to the Head of Department.
