Job Ref: NS29616

We are looking to recruit a post-doctoral Research Associate in Finance to work with the Centre for Endowment Asset Management (CEAM) at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School. CEAM is a research and education centre based within Cambridge Judge. The centre is dedicated to furthering research and understanding of investment management with a particular focus on responsible investing; corporate governance/ voting; long-run risk and return in traditional and alternative asset classes; factor investing and asset allocation; and financial market history.

This role is designed for a post-doctoral researcher, who has been awarded their PhD or has recently submitted their thesis with defence scheduled. The role will sit within the Centre for Endowment Asset Management. The role holder will become a member of the CJBS' Finance Subject Group, and will work closely with the research faculty leading CEAM (Dr Oguzhan Karakas, Professor David Chambers, and Professor Elroy Dimson); developing, conducting and supporting research and data analysis of on-going and/or new research projects.

The role is ideally suited for those wishing to work in empirical finance, particularly in the area of sustainable and responsible investing (SRI), environmental, social and governance (ESG), and corporate voting. The responsibilities of the role will also include presenting research in seminars and workshops, producing working papers to be distributed via SSRN.com and developing research for publication in journals of the highest international standard. There are no teaching obligations for this position, and the candidate will have the opportunity to consolidate their research record. A generous research budget will be provided.

The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate good technical skills including quantitative empirical finance and financial econometrics, and a strong commitment to research and publications in top refereed academic journals. Good time management and planning skills with a commitment to delivery are a pre-requisite of this role. In addition, the candidate should be an enthusiastic team member who is driven and committed. The role holder is also expected to liaise with colleagues across the Cambridge Finance community, attend regular seminars and build a network of contacts. The role holder may be required to give occasional talks to practitioners on topics relevant to asset management, however, this time commitment is expected to be minimal.

This is a fixed term appointment for two years. The starting date for the appointment is 11 April 2022, or as soon as practicable thereafter.

Successful candidates who have not been awarded their PhD by the appointment date will be under-appointed at Research Assistant level (Grade 5, salary range: £27,116 - £31,406). Upon award of the PhD the individual will be promoted to Research Associate (Grade 7, salary range: £33,309 - £40,927).
