Applicants for Assistant Professor positions should be near completion or have completed a PhD in Finance, Financial Economics or a related field.  Selection for Assistant Professors will be based on potential for publications in top journals and for effective teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition to new PhDs, we are also open to hiring seasoned Assistant Professors with a research strong pipeline, who are seeking new opportunities.

Applicants for Associate Professor positions must have a PhD and established record of high quality research with evidence of sustained scholarship and publications in top tier finance journals.  Candidates are expected to mentor junior faculty members, contribute to the School’s research culture and provide evidence of effective teaching at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels (with opportunities to teaching into the MBA and executive education).
