The post holder will be based on the Leipzig campus, and will involve teaching, research, engagement and administrative responsibilities. Teaching requirements are in the broader area of Management with a new MSc in Management starting in 2023. 

Colleagues do have access to the research environment at Lancaster University Management School in the UK, but also can benefit from a very active research team in Leipzig. The expectation is to create a critical mass of empirical researchers that also have an interest in collaborating across disciplinary boundaries. Particularly the Management department collaborates closely with the Computer Science department on topics like Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain. The successful candidate will be an active member of a vibrant research community in a highly aspiring and collegial setting. 

Please note this role a full time, indefinite post based in Leipzig, Germany and ideally we would like the appointed candidate to start at latest on 1st September 2023. The opportunity is unique as the role is permanent after 6 months probationary period with the opportunity of being promoted to senior lecturer, reader and professor in line with expectations.
