Alliance Manchester Business School seeks to appoint a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant/Associate Professor) in Entrepreneurship.  We are looking for a developing or emerging research leader who will undertake innovative, world-leading research that expands the frontiers of the entrepreneurship field. The position offers an internationally competitive salary, reasonable teaching load, generous research support, and a vibrant environment committed to generating social and economic impact and delivering excellent teaching, led by top-tier research.
