    Alliance Manchester Business School (AMBS) is forging a new, ambitious future. With a new Head of School in place, we are working harder than ever to help our communities navigate complex business and management landscapes.

    Established in 1965 as one of the UK's first two business schools, AMBS has an international reputation for original thinking, pioneering innovation and world class research.

    Original Thinking Applied is the School's brand essence and this commitment to maintaining originality, thought leadership, curiosity and a pioneering spirit is at its heart.

    Inspired by the city of Manchester's history as a world-leader in enterprise, innovation and creativity, AMBS is undertaking cutting-edge research on how business can be re-envisioned to address the world's greatest economic and societal challenges.

    We are living in pivotal times for business, whether it's dealing with regional economic disparities, geopolitical upheaval, climate change, or the impact of new technologies such as artificial intelligence. At the same time, we are realising that the invisible hand of globalisation and free markets, hasn't delivered the levels of global integration and shared prosperity we hoped it would. There is a need to re-envision how we stimulate economic growth; align growth in economic value with growth in social value; and how we ensure a fairer distribution of both.

    Businesses, business schools and policy makers are still getting to grips with what this new model could be and there is a pressing need for co-produced research that involves business, entrepreneurs, policy setters and academics. Working with the new Head of School, the re-envisioning business as a force for good research fellowship represents a unique opportunity to push the frontiers of business and management understanding and impact in ways that will contribute to the development of the business school, and shape business practice and policy.

    While a deep understanding of business and management is essential, candidates from a broad range of professional backgrounds (for example, academia, policy, business, journalism etc) of are encouraged to apply. 

    As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status.  All appointments are made on merit.
