We wish to appoint one individual to a Senior Lecturer/Reader position (equivalent to Associate/Senior Associate Professor) in the Information Systems Group within the Department of Management Science at Lancaster University Management School.

The Information Systems group focuses broadly on socio-technical approaches to the design, development, management and use of information systems.  We are looking for an individual who will bring a strong record of leadership in research, publications and external funding. Interests within the Lancaster Information Systems group area cover a range of domains and industry sectors. You will have interests in Information Systems that complement or overlap. You will also be able to provide discipline leadership in the areas of curriculum design and programme management.

For appointment at the Senior Lecturer level, you will have a demonstrable record of high quality publications commensurate with their experience.  Appointment at the Reader level will require a sustained record of high quality publications commensurate with your advanced experience.

The Management Science Department employs about 45 established academic staff, in addition to a high number of research students and a dedicated support team. Members of the Department work on a wide range of research topics and methodological approaches.  These include positivist, interpretive and critical theoretical approaches, across information systems, supply chain management, operations management and operations research.

The IS group is involved in various masters and undergraduate programmes related to digital business management and innovation, business analytics and consulting, along with the MBA and the MSc in Management.  The IS group collaborates with research in other departments/faculties at Lancaster University, including Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Computer Science, Organization Work and Technology, and Sociology.  The Department more broadly is involved in other research-based programmes including an EPSRC-funded Doctoral Training Centre in operations research (STOR-i).
