Laurie Cohen is Professor of Work and Organisation. She joined NUBS in September 2012, having previously worked for many years in the School of Business & Economics at Loughborough University. Since coming to Nottingham she has led the redesign of the undergraduate Management programme, and is currently Head of Professional Practice.

Professor Cohen's doctoral research focused on women's career transitions from employment to self-employment. Her interests emerging from that include changing careers, careers in emerging forms of organization, and research methods in the study of career, focusing in particular on interpretive approaches and the use of narrative. For many years she has also been involved in a series of studies into perceptions and enactment of management in professional organizations focusing mainly on scientific research establishments. Professor Cohen is currently involved in research projects into public sector careers in the wake of austerity, and into gender equality in university research. Her work has been supported through a series of grants from the Economic and Social Research Council, the British Academy and the Nottingham/Birmingham Collaboration Fund. Professor Cohen has published widely and is on the editorial boards of Journal of Vocational Behavior, Management Learning, Journal of Professions and Organization, and Management Inquiry. Her research monograph, Imagining Women's Careers, was published by Oxford University Press in September, 2014. This has led to an appearance on BBC Radio 4's 'Women's Hour' and to numerous articles in the press.

Professor Cohen has taught across the spectrum of years and programmes, including undergraduate and postgraduate taught and research programmes, and she has supervised over 10 PhD students to completion.

In addition to her Nottingham role, Professor Cohen is Visiting Professor at the Lund University School of Economics and Management.

Current Research Activities
My doctoral research focused on women's career transitions from employment to self-employment - an area that I have continued to work in ever since. In addition, my interests include changing careers, careers in emerging forms of organization, and research methods in the study of career, focusing in particular on interpretive approaches and the use of narrative.

For many years I have also been involved in a series of studies into perceptions and enactment of management in professional organizations - focusing mainly on academic and research organizations, professional service firms and, more recently, public sector settings.

I am currently completing a 'Documents27Oct16,UoNpresentation.pptx' 'findings of study' study of gender equality in research practices and processes at the Universities of Nottingham and Birmingham.

My work has been supported through a series of grants from the Economic and Social Research Council, the British Academy, and more recently the Birmingham/Nottingham Collaboration Fund. I am on the editorial boards of Journal of Vocational Behavior, Management Learning and Management Inquiry. My research monograph, Imagining Women's Careers, was published by Oxford University Press in September, 2014.
