University of Brighton, School of Sport and Service Management
Appointment of a Professor in Sport, Leisure and Tourism (EV3088)
The predominant purpose of this role is to contribute to the further development of the research culture in the school and the university including personal research and the leadership and development of others. The school has created a dynamic, flexible, interdisciplinary research environment and this post is expected to reflect and enhance that creative diversity.
We are looking for a highly qualified and internationally recognised scholar with a strong record of teaching, research, and publication in this field. We are interested in candidates who have proven capacities to make a substantial contribution in one or more of the following areas where the school has existing research excellence: sport, leisure and media; sport politics, international relations and development; travel and tourism; sport business and political economies; spectacle and event management; social and community development and engagement. Related and innovative subject specialisms may also be considered.
Evidence of team leadership would be a distinct advantage, as would a detailed knowledge of the external research funding environment, and a proven capacity to attract significant research funding.
In addition, the successful candidate will also be expected to make a contribution to the teaching programme at undergraduate and postgraduate level, to engage with the economic and social engagement agenda of the school, and to contribute appropriately to academic administrative roles in the school and the University.
