Visiting Professor of Research Impact

Are you a senior leader and would like to help a world-leading research Business School make a difference in business, policy or the third sector? Are you a great collaborator able to bring policy and business networks and academics together to leverage evidence-based research to address the major strategic and policy challenges facing institutions and businesses today?

The Leeds University Business School (LUBS) is enjoying a rapidly growing reputation for the impact of its research in society and economy, benefiting many organisations and policy bodies outside of higher education. The School seeks to build on this reputation and strengthen its capability for engaged and impactful research by appointing leaders in unique roles of Visiting Professor of Research Impact.

Following the success of the first round of recruitment we are now embarking on a second round with three more posts advertised. These posts are designed to attract successful leaders from business, industry and policy arenas to work for the School. They will help to promote research from LUBS to their external connections at various levels (regional, national, global) and deliver excellent impact that makes a significant and tangible difference to policy and/or the world of business.

This opportunity is to bring in people from business, public sector and policy to work with LUBS and support our mission and research strategy. You will have expertise aligned with one or more research domains at LUBS (accounting, economics, finance, international business, marketing and work & employment relations). It is expected that you will be leaders in your field with considerable experience of strategy and policy formation, be innovators and creative thinkers, as well as being excellent communicators with extensive stakeholder contacts. Applicants are not required to have an academic background or academic track record but will be motivated to engage with academic researchers to collaboratively develop impactful recommendations for policy and practice.

As an international research-intensive university, we welcome students and staff from all walks of life and from across the world. We foster an inclusive environment where all can flourish and prosper, and we are proud of our strong commitment to research and innovation and research-led student education. Within the Faculty of Business, we are dedicated to diversifying our community and we welcome the unique contributions that individuals can bring, and particularly encourage applications from, but not limited to Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people; people who identify as LGBT+; and people with disabilities. We especially encourage people who identify as female to apply. Candidates will always be selected based on merit and ability.
