The School of Management invites applications at the level of Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Finance, on a research & teaching contract, at the University of Bath. Candidates with sufficient experience may be considered at the level of Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor).

We are looking to appoint three committed colleagues who will make excellent contributions both in research and in teaching undergraduate, masters or MBA students.  Our emphasis will be on identifying new colleagues who will deliver high quality  performance over the next 6-7 years, in any research area in finance, and who aim eventually to become full professors. We are particularly interested in applicants for at least one of these posts to have research and teaching interests in areas such as fintech, insurance, mathematical finance, derivatives pricing, deep learning and machine learning applied to finance. 

Colleagues on research and teaching contracts teach half the load taught by those on teaching contracts. These posts are for candidates, in the early stages of their careers, aiming to publish research in strong academic journals. Successful applicants will have credible research pipelines and will likely have already published in such journals. Papers accepted for publication will also be counted if proof of acceptance can later be provided. 

Candidates wishing to be considered for Senior Lecturer should have several years of experience as a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer and are only likely to be successful at that level with at least six academically strong papers published, including two ABS4 or one ABS4*, on their lists of refereed publications. 

The School of Management is a vibrant and productive community. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), it was ranked 8th in the UK for Business and Management Studies and 6th in the UK for world class and internationally-leading publications. The School has access to financial data as you would expect, including Datastream, CRSP, Compustat and the WRDS platform but also many others, such as BoardEx, CSMAR China data, Eventus, London LSPD, Markit, Mergent FISD, MFLinks, Morningstar, Option Metrics, and daily TAQ data.

The School of Management is undergoing a period of faculty expansion and facility improvement which will include moving into a state-of-the-art new building in June, so you would be joining us in this new building. The University of Bath is situated on a modern campus surrounded by attractive countryside overlooking the centre of Bath, a UNESCO-designated World Heritage City, famous for its Georgian architecture and its cultural festivals. It is a safe and friendly campus with excellent sports facilities. Bath is easily accessible by air, road and rail and located only 100 miles west of London (under an hour and a half by train). 

These are full-time posts with expected start date in October 2022 or possibly earlier by agreement.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor David Newton, Head of the Accounting, Finance and Law Division, email or Professor Ania Zalewska, email
