We are particularly interested in research related to entrepreneurship, innovation, or technology. The anticipated start is 1 September 2020.

    University College London (UCL) is is one of the world's top universities. At its establishment in 1826, UCL was radical and responsive to the needs of society, and this ethos – that excellence should go hand-in-hand with enriching society – continues today. UCL's excellence extends across all academic disciplines; from one of Europe's largest and most productive hubs for biomedical science interacting with several leading London hospitals, to world-renowned centres for architecture (UCL Bartlett) and fine art (UCL Slade School). With an annual turnover exceeding £1.5 billion, it is a major research and education hub in London and globally.

    UCL's staff and former students have included over 30 Nobel prize winners. It is a truly international community: more than one-third of our student body – more than 38,000 strong – come from 150 countries and nearly one-third of staff are from outside the UK. UCL offers more than 200 undergraduate programmes and more than 400 taught postgraduate programmes. Approximately 55% of the student community is engaged in graduate studies, with about 30% of these graduate students pursuing research degrees.

    The UCL School of Management consists of five research groups: Strategy & Entrepreneurship, Organisations & Innovation, Operations & Technology, Marketing & Analytics, and Finance, Accounting & Economics. The School offers BSc, MSc, MBA and PhD programmes in Management, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Business Analytics, Information Technology Management for Business, Management Science.
