Doctoral Associates in Accounting and Financial Management

University of Sheffield - Sheffield University Management School - Faculty of Social Sciences

Contract Type: Fixed-term for six years
Salary: Grade 7
£30,688 - £38,833 per annum. Potential to progress to £42,418 per annum through sustained exceptional contribution

Are you interested in working for a top-ranked Management School which has achieved accreditation from the three largest and most influential business school associations: AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS? 

With world-class facilities, ground-breaking research and cutting-edge thinking, we are seeking applications from ambitious, highly motivated and talented individuals who will be keen to play an active role in maintaining and enhancing the Management School’s international reputation for research, teaching excellence and innovation.

In 2015, we introduced the new concept of a ‘Doctoral Associate’. This innovative position is a six-year development pathway for new Lecturers and allows the incumbent to undertake a part-time PhD in 50% of their role whilst lecturing in the other 50%. We are looking to appoint Doctoral Associates in the field of Accounting and Financial Management.

You will follow a six-year pathway, during which you will have a 50% teaching role with the remainder of your time undertaking a part-time PhD. The continuation of your post will be dependent on the successful progression through the PhD. It is anticipated that at the end of the six years, subject to the successful completion of a PhD and satisfactory performance in the role, you will be considered for a Lectureship role.

You will be expected to teach and engage in related activities in some area of Accounting, Financial Management and Finance. Ideally, your PhD studies will focus on one of the following areas:

  • The Financialisation of Housing;
  • Institutional Investors’ Role;
  • Business Ownership.

You should attach to your application a research proposal as if you were applying to study a PhD. You may attach more than one proposal if you have several interests.

You will hold a relevant first degree and postgraduate research degree at Masters level (or equivalent experience) and appropriate teaching experience in teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The holding of a professional qualification in the relevant subject area will be seen as highly desirable for this position.

As the post will allow the appointee to undertake a part-time PhD, it is not expected that candidates who already have a PhD in the areas of Accounting, Financial Management and Finance will apply.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
