Creative, ambitious and keen to develop transformative research, you will 
relish this excellent opportunity to drive your academic career to a higher 
level. As an impressive early career academic, you'll recognise that securing a 
Presidential Academic Fellowship at the University of Manchester will empower 
you to unlock your potential. In addition to a good salary for the duration of 
your Fellowship, you'll receive several thousand pounds per annum for research 
support costs and access to key technology platforms. Your time during this 
award will be initially dedicated to research, with no or minimal teaching in 
the first year, and minimal teaching in the second year.  Thereafter teaching 
would increase with each subsequent year of the fellowship.  You can look 
forward to mentoring and assistance in winning external funding and awards.

As a Presidential Academic Fellow, you will be based in either the Global 
Development Institute or Geography, and will work closely with the Alliance 
Manchester Business School and the Sustainable Consumption Institute. Your 
research will focus on the nature of technological shifts, and the implications 
of robotics and new technologies for globalisation and global production 
networks, including the outcomes for labour. In particular, you'll help to 
strengthen an understanding of how sustainable global production and 
consumption goals can be achieved.

To join us, you will need a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification. You'll 
bring to the role a sustained record of publication output. Crucially, you will 
demonstrate the ability to develop a coherent world-leading research programme, 
with new concepts and ideas to extend intellectual understanding. You have what 
it takes to organise resources and deliver results to deadlines. Your excellent 
communication and interpersonal skills also equip you to build a team, and to 
inspire and engage students. The determination to win your own funding will be 
key to your success.
