Position Summary:

Trinity Business School is in the midst of a transformative high growth strategy.  It is currently one of the fastest growing Business Schools in the Developed World.  It is engaged in significant levels of recruitment of faculty and professional staff plus investing €80 million in a new state of the art building at the heart of Dublin City.  The School is implementing extensive innovation in both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees as well as in a new portfolio of executive education.  All of these activities are delivering impactful programmes, which are underpinned by personal development, ethical values, rigorous research and cutting-edge expertise from industry.  The mission is to build upon Trinity Business School’s niche high quality education offering and develop a full portfolio of activities commensurate with a leading international business school.

Business/ Data Analytics is a key element necessary to achieve this mission.  The potential of ‘big data’ is growing rapidly. Taking full advantage means that ambitious organisations must incorporate analytics into their strategic vision and use it to make better, faster decisions. To meet the needs of such developments Trinity Business School is expanding its capabilities in Data Analytics, Statistics and Management Science in order to further develop students’ capacity to enable organizations to manage and gain insight from data and capture the value potential being offered. Furthermore, the School wishes to increase its research footprint within the business analytics spectrum.

The School intends to hire a research-active academic who will be expected to have a substantial portfolio both in terms of volume and rank in the journals listed in the Chartered Association of Business Schools journals rakings.  Applicants with publications in the FT list of preferred management research journals are particularly welcome.

Trinity Business School delivers cutting-edge education at both undergraduate and postgraduate degree level.  It has also launched some very successful executive education degree programmes with ambitions for further expansion.  It is envisaged that this new professorship will play a leading role in teaching and developing these programmes.  Therefore, we are seeking to hire a professor who is motivated and passionate about their teaching and ultimately its impact on the careers of students, managers and organisations.  While Trinity has an internationally competitive workload model which includes generous time for research, it is fair to say that we are not looking  for a professor whose career aspiration is to only focus on research to the point of seeking to disengage from teaching and students.  Instead, we want to hire a professor who will secure high course evaluation ratings and who will want to play an active role in developing leading education programmes and experiences for students and executives/entrepreneurs.
