The University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) is seeking to appoint two outstanding Chairs in Marketing as part of the drive to enhance ULMS’ position as a world-class School of Management. Both posts will sit within the newly-created and growing Marketing Subject Group.  The appointees will be expected to contribute to the leadership of the Group, making an outstanding scholarly contribution by conducting world-class research, mentoring early career researchers and supporting development of colleagues, and enhancing the international reputation of the Marketing Group. The Chairs are also expected to shape and support new and innovative teaching directions.

The Group is keen to strengthen both existing areas of research and teaching expertise, alongside developing new areas to support new postgraduate programmes which are currently under-development. Candidates with skills related to quantitative methods, digital marketing, analytics and sustainable marketing are particularly welcomed.

The Marketing Group comprises 27 academics supported by 15 PhD students. It delivers highly-successful, specialist undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Marketing as well as delivering modules across all programmes in the School. The Group’s research coalesces around four main themes: B2B marketing; Consumer Culture; Digital Marketing and Identity; and vulnerable consumers and marginalised communities. Members of the group have research published in some of the top journals in the field including Journal of Consumer Research, International Journal of Research in Marketing, International Journal of Operations & Production Management, Journal of Services Research, Organization Studies, Sociology, Tourism Management, Annals of Tourism Research and Social Science and Medicine. Staff serve on the editorial boards of a number of journals, including an Editor-in-Chief role with Marketing Theory. They also work closely with the public and third sectors in highly-impactful action research and knowledge exchange. Group members collaborate across the School, in particular engaging with the Research Clusters in Organisational and Employee Wellbeing and Econometrics and Big Data.


EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA accredited, and a pioneer in on-line education, ULMS is an international management school that benefits from Liverpool’s standing as a founding member of the Russell Group of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities and from its location in a city known the world over for its culture and commerce.  With a world heritage skyline, excellent transport links, and regional beauty, Liverpool is highly ranked on quality of life in the UK, while remaining one of Britain’s most affordable cities.


Under the leadership of the School Dean, Professor Julia Balogun, the School has received substantial investment in recent years including a new extension adjacent to the Georgian quarter of Liverpool that is home to state-of-the-art facilities.  Its 200 academic staff enjoy a highly collegial and interdisciplinary environment and the School is at the forefront of the University’s commitment to research excellence, succeeding against its vision of global connectivity, transformational research and education, and knowledge leadership. 


Salary will be internationally competitive, commensurate with the appointees’ standing and potential.


Formal interviews will take place on Tuesday, 22 June 2021.
