We are extremely grateful to Ryanair for supporting our high growth strategy by funding this Chair in Entrepreneurship. The School already has a considerable core of faculty who publish world leading research on entrepreneurship. Research on social entrepreneurship comprises a significant part of the output of the Business School’s Centre of Social Innovation. A new Centre for Digital Business is being created and that too will obviously involve entrepreneurship related research projects.

The Ryanair Chair of Entrepreneurship will be expected to play a leading role in galvanising, developing and innovating across all these activities including degree programmes, executive education, management and research. The School intends to hire a thought leader who, commensurate with a leading international full professor, has a substantial portfolio of research publications both in terms of volume and quality i.e. highly ranked in the journals listed in the Chartered Association of Business Schools journals rakings. Applicants with publications in the Financial Times’ list of preferred management research journals are particularly welcome. While we are seeking to hire a rigorous researcher we also require that this research expertise is of relevance and can provide value-added to practitioners of entrepreneurship, venture finance and/or public policy. Therefore, evidence of considerable engagement and impact with the entrepreneurial community (beyond academia) to include an understanding of the key challenges facing the relevant groups as well as an ability to communicate effectively with them are key attributes that we need to fulfil our mission.

The successful candidate will have: a PhD in a business subject area within the field of entrepreneurship broadly defined so as to also include entrepreneurial finance, strategic entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship; high quality research publications; will be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching and administration that is consistent with the demands of modern business education; industry experience in the areas of entrepreneurship and/or venture finance is desirable; and familiarity with distance education and online teaching would be advantageous. Candidates should have excellent communication, organisation and interpersonal skills, with the ability to work independently as well as part of a team.
