Position Summary: 

Trinity Business School is in the midst of a transformative high growth strategy.  It is currently one of the fastest growing established Business Schools.  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 discipline area of operations and supply chain management has been identified as a key growth area of Trinity Business School, both in terms of faculty and curricula.   The aim is to attract top empirical researchers in this field to contribute to the programme of research activity ongoing in the School, and to also enhance the delivery of taught programmes and modules in this area.  Having recently launched the M.Sc. in Operations and Supply Chain Management, Trinity Business School seeks a research-active academic, who is passionate about their teaching to get involved in the delivery of the programme.   Applications are encouraged from empirical researchers across the broad areas of operations and supply chain management.


The School intends to appoint an Assistant Professor who will have a minimum of one publication ranked by the Academic Journal Guide of Association of Business School (ABS) at least at level 3.  Applicants with publications in the Financial Times (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. 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.  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.


The ideal candidate for the post will have a relevant PhD, high quality research publications and will be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching, research and administration, consistent with the demands of modern business education. Beyond these criteria, industry expertise and/or a professional qualification will be an advantage.


Candidates should have excellent communication, organisation and interpersonal skills, with the ability to work independently as well as part of a team.


Informal enquiries can be made to:

Professor Yufei Huang ( / +353 1896 8228) or to Professor Andrew Burke, Dean of the Trinity Business School by e-mail:  and phone +353-1-896-3133.
