Applications are invited for a full-time, without-term Readership in Finance/Economics to join the Roehampton Business School.

The Roehampton Business School has a growing reputation for its research-informed teaching. We are seeking applications from highly motivated candidates who will carry out high quality research and/or be actively engaged in professional practice, and develop and deliver undergraduate and postgraduate modules for the Business School’s expanding portfolio.

This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe.
