Interview Date:   Monday 22 July 2019
Reference:  A2672

Lancaster University wishes to appoint a senior academic to strengthen and further develop its world class research and educational activities in the area of organisations, work and health.

This is a joint appointment between the Division of Health Research (DHR, Faculty of Health of Medicine) and Organisation, Work and Technology (OWT, Lancaster University Management School).

The purpose of the joint appointment is to strengthen cross-faculty collaborations between health and management researchers. You will, therefore, be able to engage effectively with the agendas and approaches to research and teaching of both DHR and OWT.

DHR conducts research in organisational health and wellbeing, mental health, ageing, end of life care and social and economic inequality and health. The Division also offers a range of part- time and full-time teaching programmes at Masters and PhD level, predominantly through blended learning.

OWT was one of the first departments of organisation studies to be established in the UK. The Department is a multi-disciplinary in its approach, drawing from the disciplines of social psychology, sociology and philosophy amongst others. OWT’s key research themes are: critical leadership studies; ethics & sustainability; gender & diversity; human resource management & employment relations; information, technology and organisations; and management & society. The Department offers a range of Undergraduate, Postgraduate, Executive and PhD programmes.

Significant investment in the creation of a Health Innovation Campus, adjacent to the main campus, makes this an exciting time to join Lancaster University, with construction of the £41 million first phase of building scheduled for completion in 2019.

You will have an established academic record of accomplishment in organisations, work and health and demonstrated research and educational excellence. You will be enthusiastic to drive a relevant
and innovative research agenda, supervise and attract postgraduate students and to develop new teaching programmes.

The Faculties provide a research environment that strongly supports the individual needs of each employee, promoting a healthy work-life balance. We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, as well as the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education and research.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be directed to Professor Catherine Walshe email:  or Professor James Faulconbridge
