Creative, ambitious and keen to develop transformative research, you will relish this excellent opportunity to drive your academic career to a higher level. As an impressive early career academic, you’ll recognise that securing a Presidential Academic Fellowship at the University of Manchester will empower you to unlock your potential. In addition to a good salary for the duration of your Fellowship, you’ll receive several thousand pounds per annum for research support costs and access to key technology platforms. Your time during this award will be initially dedicated to research, with no or minimal teaching in the first year, and minimal teaching in the second year.  Thereafter teaching would increase with each subsequent year of the fellowship.  You can look forward to mentoring and assistance in winning external funding and awards.

As a Presidential Academic Fellow, you will be based in either the Global Development Institute or Geography, and will work closely with the Alliance Manchester Business School and the Sustainable Consumption Institute. Your research will focus on the nature of technological shifts, and the implications of robotics and new technologies for globalisation and global production networks, including the outcomes for labour. In particular, you’ll help to strengthen an understanding of how sustainable global production and consumption goals can be achieved.

To join us, you will need a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification. You’ll bring to the role a sustained record of publication output. Crucially, you will demonstrate the ability to develop a coherent world-leading research programme, with new concepts and ideas to extend intellectual understanding. You have what it takes to organise resources and deliver results to deadlines. Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills also equip you to build a team, and to inspire and engage students. The determination to win your own funding will be key to your success.
