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.  The School received 5 year accreditations from both EQUIS (2018) and AMBA (2015).

The capacity to steer an organization through turbulent environmental contexts is critical to firm success. Competing successfully in an uncertain environment with incomplete information is increasingly seen to be both an art and science.  This has been reflected in recent years as the economics of strategy has been complemented by a multi-disciplinary approach incorporating the fields of sociology and psychology leading to more attention being paid to the complexity of human and organizational behaviour.  In addition to the above, over recent times there has also been a greater alignment between strategy and entrepreneurship as complementary disciplines as innovative and entrepreneurial behaviour has become a key requirement for more mature organisations.  Furthermore, the capacity to acquire greater clarity within the ‘fuzzy’ context that serves as the arena for good strategic making has been significantly enhanced by recent developments in data/business analytics.

The School intends to hire a research-active academic who will be expected to have at least six publications at 3 or 4-star level in the Chartered Association of Business Schools journals rakings.  Applicants with publications in the FT list of preferred management research journals are particularly welcome.
