Academic appointments 2014

Liverpool John Moores University is seeking to appoint inspiring academics to support our research and teaching as part of a significant investment in scholarship and learning.

With over 30 posts ranging from Dean, to Director of School, Professors and lecturers to lead academic teams across the University, this represents one of the most wide-ranging academic recruitment opportunities in recent years. Two years ago, the University embarked upon a similar exercise to bring new life to our academic community and recruited top academics from across the globe to lead new research areas and to join established and successful academic teams.

With an ambitious strategic plan focusing on scholarship as a cornerstone, this is an exciting time to join the University. We are looking to recruit excellent people with enthusiasm and passion to inspire our students and to play a full role in the public life of the University.

LJMU is renowned for its open and stimulating academic community. Diversity is valued. Endeavour is supported. Achievement is celebrated. You will be given every encouragement to succeed in thriving world-class facilities in one of the most celebrated cities in the world. If you have aspiration and ambition and believe that through academic endeavour we can take on the challenges of the 21st century then do take a look at what we have to offer.
