    Associate Professorship of Organisation Studies
    Start date: The position is tenable from 1 September 2024 or at an earlier or later date by negotiation.
     The University of Oxford's Saïd Business School seeks an outstanding candidate for a permanent, full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Organisation Studies based at Saïd Business School, Park End Street, Oxford. The position is associated with a non-tutorial fellowship at Green Templeton College.
    For this post, the School welcomes applications from early career candidates (i.e., scholars who have completed or will very soon complete their PhD), postdoctoral researchers (i.e., scholars who are currently in a postdoc position in a business school), and faculty who are already established in a business school as a tenure-track faculty member. At Oxford Saïd the rank of Associate Professor includes faculty that would elsewhere be considered of assistant or associate professor rank. The Organisation Studies groups includes faculty in management, organisational behaviour, and organisation studies.
    The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on the 26th of February 2024.
    We are inviting applications from those with a background in Organisation Studies, broadly defined, who are committed to a programme of intellectually rigorous and relevant scholarship in management, organisation studies, or organisational behaviour that is publishable in top academic management journals. In terms of publishing, the School expects its faculty members to publish in the very best journals in business, which are considered to be those on the Financial Times academic journals list (specifically the 48 peer-reviewed academic journals on the list, excluding the two practitioner-focused publications, Harvard Business Review and Sloan Management Review).
    The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the School's undergraduate, graduate and executive programmes with a particular focus on the MBA and Executive MBA and the group's core courses in organizational behaviour, leadership and management.
    They will join the Organisation Studies group, which conducts research at the individual, organisational, industry, and field levels. Focal topics have recently included legitimacy and social evaluations, transformation leadership and change implementation in health care, professionals' career transitions, as well as workplace equity, diversity and inclusion. An important focus of the group is leadership and its challenges: navigating competing expectations and goals, mental health in leadership roles, and the distinctive obstacles and opportunities for women in leadership. Group members also study the emotional aspects of work and organisations, and processes of individual and organisational resilience and growth.
    The group's research has traditionally primarily relied on qualitative methods, with particular strengths in narrative and a variety of ethnographic methods. It is building increasing capacity in experimental and other quantitative methods, mirroring broader efforts across the school. We therefore strongly encourage applicants from any methodological background as we continue to broaden the methodological interests of our Organisation Studies faculty group. Our research sites are diverse and include professional service firms, multinational corporations, healthcare organisations, and hybrid, mission driven organisations.
