Essex Business School

The Finance Group at Essex Business School has an international reputation for their leading edge research. The School itself was ranked as a Top 25 business school out of over 100 UK business schools in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014.  More than two-thirds of our research is rated ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.

The Group is now seeking to make two academic appointments at the Lecturer level.

Duties of the Role

The purpose of this post is to further develop our current teaching, research and partnership activities at Essex Business School. These appointments will play a vital role in enhancing the School’s research profile, developing undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and extending the School’s profile regionally, nationally and internationally, by contact with the wider academic community and the dissemination of knowledge via public communication and other activities.

The post-holders will be required to contribute to excellence in education by designing and delivering substantive and effective teaching and learning support, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; engage in individual and/or collaborative research activity (resulting in internationally excellent publications) that is in keeping with REF criteria; and to undertake leadership duties related to research and education appropriate to career stage.

In addition, you will be required to generate external research funding, including in collaboration with colleagues, appropriate in scale to career stage and subject area norms.

A full list of key responsibilities and main duties (Education, Research and Leadership and Citizenship) can be found within the job pack.

Qualifications and Skills required

Applicants should hold a relevant doctoral level research degree in finance, or be close to completion of studies, evidence of a clear publication plan for submission to future Research Excellence Framework (REF) programmes, and proven experience in teaching at undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels, or demonstrable potential for achieving this.

In addition you will possess evidence of a research agenda, ideally with a track record of publications in internationally recognised, reputable journals (and other media of similar standing) appropriate to career stage and discipline norms.

We welcome applications from candidates with interest in any area of Finance.
