The Centre for Leadership Studies (CLS) at the University of Exeter Business School is seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor from September 2012.
We are looking for an experienced academic who can make an active contribution to the Centre, in terms of its research, teaching and engagement with practitioners. Applications are invited from people with a background in any area of Leadership Studies and related fields.

Particular areas of interest include: leadership and sustainability, shared/distributed leadership, leadership and sensemaking, board and executive leadership, leadership and identity, and experiential and reflective approaches to leadership development. This post offers a superb opportunity to work with outstanding students, international partners and a network of renowned academic and practitioner colleagues with a primary interest in leadership. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from scholars whose work will complement that of existing staff (details of which can be found at www.exeter.ac.uk/leadership); who bring a critical approach to their work; and who may help to strengthen links with other parts of the Business School and/or University.
We are looking for an innovative teacher and active researcher. Applicants should have excellent quality scholarly publications in a relevant field, a PhD in a relevant discipline, and a track-record of attracting external research funding . They should also be able to provide leadership and support in research, teaching and administrative duties, and be capable of providing high quality teaching and supervision at both the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level. Experience of teaching practitioners is desirable but not essential for this post.
