The school offers employees a competitive salary, a relocation allowance and housing search assistance, French social security benefits, complementary health insurance, meal vouchers, a profit-sharing plan, and a contributory pension scheme. Our satisfaction survey among new hires shows that 100% of the respondents were (very) satisfied with the organization of their arrival on campus.

Our Lille Campus is in the heart of the Northern French city of Lille (within the triangle made up by London, Paris and Brussels), and our Paris Campus (with a brand-new building) is located in the biggest European business district of “La Défense”. Both premises have an excellent classroom infrastructure as well as an energizing research environment.

Created in September 2020, the Management & Society Department consists of over 25 full-time academic staff, including lecturers and young scholars, in the areas of Business and Society, Organization Studies and Strategic Management. The Management & Society Department offers a range of courses at different levels (Bachelor, Master, Executive education) and supports a variety of research interests and activities. The department explicitly welcomes cross-disciplinary research efforts needed to address the challenges currently faced by both for-profit and non-profit organizations, their stakeholders and the communities in which they operate.

The Management & Society Department, together with the IESEG Centre for Organizational Responsibility (ICOR -, operates in line with the vision of the School to be “a unique international hub empowering changemakers for a better society”. The department’s objective is to offer first class teaching and conduct great research in the domain of Management & Society in a collaborative and open environment. By doing so the department and ICOR together aim to be a source of inspiration in the development of responsible and sustainable business practices, and a source of diffusion of creative knowledge and solutions.

The School maintains an excellent network with overseas institutions for collaborative work. Current faculty members from the Management & Society Department have been successful in publishing articles in top-tier refereed journals including (amongst others) the Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Discoveries, Academy of Management Perspectives, Academy of Management Annals, Journal of Management Studies, Strategic Management Journal, Industrial and Corporate Change, Journal of Management Inquiry, Organization Science, Organization Studies, Business Ethics Quarterly, Business & Society, Journal of Business Ethics, and Organization & Environment.


Our selected applicant will be offered to teach courses in Corporate Social Responsibility/ Corporate Sustainability at the undergraduate, graduate and/or postgraduate level and to actively contribute to the design and development of the School’s programs.

The selected applicant is also expected to contribute to the development of ICOR, in line with the sustainability-oriented ambitions of the School, which aims at supporting the development of responsible, innovative and enlightened organizations via impactful research efforts and expertise sharing.

Applicants should be completely fluent in English as nearly all courses at IESEG are taught in this language. Although not required (the School provides French courses to faculty members), active working knowledge of French is considered an asset. For this position, a strong ability and willingness to interact with managers and practitioners at the French and international level is indeed valued.

Applicants should hold a PhD. We are looking for candidates with (a) extensive higher education teaching experience; (b) a strong publication record in top-tier refereed journals, including a solid pipeline of work and evidence of research impact; (c) good networks in academia and professional circles at French and international levels; and (d) grant application ability.
