Surrey Business School is a mid-sized business school with approximately 100 academic staff members from around the globe, and a highly cohesive and collegial atmosphere. We are growing strongly, both in terms of our size, and in terms of the quality and impact of our work. Specifically, we put a heavy emphasis on research excellence. Our faculty regularly publish their research in top journals in Management (AMJ, AMR, SMJ, JIBS, Management Science, Operations Research, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, ETP, Organisation Studies, Human Relations, Research Policy), and in other leading journals in their fields of expertise (Journal of Finance, Review of Finance, Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, etc.). Our colleagues have joined us from prestigious universities and business schools worldwide, with recent appointments including individuals who earned their PhD at institutions such as Harvard, MIT, LSE, and elsewhere.

The Department of Finance and Accounting has core research strengths in corporate finance/governance and banking. The Department is a healthy mix of research active faculty and practitioner teaching fellows, the latter bringing a wealth of business experience. The Department has grown strongly in recent years, and will continue to do so in future, with further appointments already in plan. We thus seek to appoint a Lecturer (L) or Senior Lecturer (SL) in Finance, with a preference for candidates in International Corporate Finance/Financial Management (exceptional candidates from other areas of Finance will also be considered).

The ideal candidate at the L level must be able to demonstrate a strong and clear individual research agenda leading to publications in top international journals. You would also be contributing to teaching, in particular in our MSc programmes and in the field of International Financial Management. However, we will ensure that your teaching load is such as to provide you with sufficient time for research leadership. Conditions and compensation will be at internationally competitive standards and be commensurate with the appointee’s experience and expertise.

The ideal candidate at the SL level, should meet the requirements of the L level plus having at least two publications in world elite journals. Candidates with papers in the revise & resubmit stage in world elite journals will also be given very serious consideration. These candidates should also have experience in teaching core finance courses and be able to demonstrate teaching excellence.
