Located in the beautiful city of Lincoln and well connected to businesses in the area, Lincoln International Business School is growing and ambitious, with an internationally diverse student body and a set of programmes ranked highly in the National Student Survey. The School is expanding investment in
tourism and event management education and research,
seeking to enhance its national
reputation and expand its global network. Academics within Tourism and Events have an international outlook and a commitment to both teaching and research in the field.
The multicultural team comprises a core of 12 full-time staff and several associate lecturers.
Teaching and research interests are varied.
Research activity includes work on tourism and climate change, migrant workers,
aviation management,
event impacts, eventful spaces, managing the volunteer, resort regeneration,
social enterprise, culture and heritage
and development studies.
The group have also been involved in a range of consultancies and knowledge exchange activities.
Professor Heather Hughes leads the Visitor Economy Research Group, which also includes researchers from outside the tourism and events group.
Notably, Professor Hughes leads on a major Heritage Lottery Funded project; the International Bomber Command Centre.

Unsurprisingly given our location in a tourist historic city within a predominantly rural county, heritage and rural tourism are particular interests.
Moreover,
we have developed a network of partners in both the tourism and events sectors which provide opportunities for knowledge exchange activity.
The tourism group have delivered highly successful Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral programmes in Lincoln since 1996; with several successful PhD completions in the past 2 years.

Delivering high quality student learning, high levels of student satisfaction and graduate outcomes, the tourism subject has consistently recorded high NSS scores and performed well in various league tables.
In 2016, the team achieved first place in the NSS rankings nationally; for the second time in the past 5 years.
The academic subject underwent a successful Periodic Academic Review in 2016 and established challenging goals for 2021; in the context of TEF and REF.

The Business School occupies a custom designed building on our city centre campus with modern learning spaces for students, a specialist facility for corporate education, and flexible spaces to support collaborative research. We are seeking to make an appointment at either Reader or Principal Lecturer level; candidates should state which profile they are applying for.
