The positions offer opportunities for research and teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and enables an ambitious candidate to play an important role in the shaping of the future development of International Business and Economics in the University of Greenwich Business School. The School provides conditions conducive for active research.
We are especially interested in candidates who can make a significant contribution to the work of the Public Services International Research Unit. PSIRU carries out critical empirical research on public services, the impact of privatisation and liberalisation, at global, European, and country levels. The focus is on the water, energy, healthcare, social care and waste management sectors. The core work is funded by Public Services International, a global trade union confederation, and is expected to be responsive to its agenda. The PSIRU website www.psiru.org shows the range of issues and sectors addressed.
But we also welcome applicants with research interests aligned with the existing specialisms of the Department and contributions towards plurality in theoretical and methodological approaches.
The Department performed strongly in the latest UK Research Assessment Exercise, with two-thirds of its research rated internationally significant or world-leading. In addition to PSIRU, the Department hosts the Centre for Business Network Analysis and the Centre for Economic Performance, Governance and Regulation Research and works closely with the Work and Employment Research Unit.
The University of Greenwich is consistently rated first in London for teaching excellence and the Business School is ranked in the top third for business and management in the Guardian’s national tables. The Department of International Business and Economics has a strong undergraduate offering in international business, economics and business law, repeatedly rating first in the UK in the National Student Satisfaction Survey. It runs successful postgraduate programmes in International Business and Business and Financial Economics both in London and with partners in East Africa, South and South East Asia.
