The Department of Economics and Finance is a significant part of the College of Business, Arts and Social Sciences. The Department is home to more than 40 full-time academics, with research interests spanning Accountancy, Banking, Economics and Finance, over 1200 undergraduate students across seven degree programmes, and over 180 postgraduate students following four taught programmes or undertaken doctoral research. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), the Department’s research output was rated in the top 20 by research intensity by the Economics and Econometrics panel.
The Department of Economics and Finance is experiencing major growth, driven in part by the recent success of the BSc Accountancy programme and growth in its MSc Programmes in the area of Finance, and is recruiting ambitious lecturers to support this growth.
Applicants are welcome from any area of Finance with significant knowledge of Financial Markets. They should normally hold a PhD in Finance, or be nearing completion, and be holding an appropriate professional qualification in Finance, such as from the CFA or CISI. As this post is teaching-focussed, candidates must possess high quality teaching capabilities or experience, and have an interest in developing their teaching skills and further enhancing the teaching programmes.
While an interest in teaching in any area of Finance is welcome, the Department has immediate teaching needs in risk management, international finance, financial econometrics and corporate finance. Candidates interested in developing teaching in the area of Fintech would also be most welcome to apply. The Department is a co-convenor of the Research Centre in Law, Economics and Finance, and has finance academics in the research groups in Empirical Finance and in Finance and Accounting. There is excellent computer support and data facilities, including from providers such as Bloomberg, Fitch and Refinitiv (Eikon/Datastream). It is anticipated that the prospective candidates will be prepared to take on some administration such as leading a module, directing a degree programme for the department, or co-ordinating co-curriculum events to enhance student experience.
Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Jim Steeley, Head of Department (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
