Swansea University is a research-led University that thrives on exploration and discovery, offering a balance of excellent teaching and research.  The University has enjoyed a period of tremendous growth in the last ten years and we achieved 26th position in the UK’s Research Excellence Framework league table in 2014.

In 2015, the School of Management moved to a new custom built facility on the Swansea University new Science and Innovation (Bay) Campus (representing one of the largest ever investments by a UK University in new facilities). The School occupies a beach front £23 million building.  Our Student Experience Strategy is backed by small group teaching, work placements, careers advice, a Student Hub, extended professional services, and greater business engagement – around 250 companies are supporting work placements and student projects in business.

Our Accounting and Finance Department is home to about 30 academics and approximately 1,000 students, with the Hawkes Research Centre and programmes encompassing both accounting and finance subject areas at post-graduate and undergraduate level.  In the most recent Guardian University Guide results, the department has improved to 25th place (out of 101 institutions) from 35th place last year.  We also deliver transnational accounting education in partnership with Huanghuai University, China.

We are looking to appoint a dynamic researcher as well as a committed teacher in Accounting, Finance or Banking to make a positive contribution to the life of the department.  We are particularly interested in applicants with research and teaching interests in:

  • Advanced Management or Financial Accounting
  • Asset Management
  • Investments

The School of Management building provides outstanding facilities with its own media suite and access to extensive accounting and finance databases e.g. Compustat and CSMAR via WRDS, Thomson Reuters Eikon (incorporating Datastream), S&P Global Market Intelligence (SNL Financials), FAME and Zephyr.  The School is also home to the innovation hubs of some of our industry partners, such as Pfizer and several spinout companies.
