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.

We welcome applications from candidates who can deliver excellent research and teaching within the field of Financial Management.  

You will have a PhD (or equivalent experience) in a relevant subject area, will be a proven thought leader and researcher with a distinguished publication record at a world-leading level.  You should have significant experience in winning external research funding, with an ambition to grow a critical mass of funding and resources and to provide intellectual direction for research appropriate to the position.  You will be able to demonstrate skills in the leadership and the mentoring of academic staff in research, publication and income generation activities, and also have the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues from within the University and from private and public sector organisations.

In line with the University of Sheffield’s professorial expectations, the post holder will be expected to contribute strongly to academic leadership as well as teaching. The successful candidate will be involved in the development and delivery of our teaching offerings in the area of Management and Economics. The School also engages in substantial interdisciplinary teaching and research, especially integrating engineering disciplines with management disciplines. Therefore, we would welcome applications from candidates who have an inter-disciplinary focus to their teaching and their research.

It is anticipated that interviews and other selection action will be held Wednesday 28 November 2018 and full details will be provided to invited candidates.
