About the opportunity 

The University of Sydney is the first established university in Australia and is a part of an elite “Group of Eight” universities. The University of Sydney Business School is regarded as a leader in the region, and is one of very few Australian schools to hold business and accounting accreditation from AACSB International and EQUIS accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development. It is the only Australian member school of CEMS, the Global Alliance in Management Education (formerly the Community of European Management Schools and International Companies).

The Business School has an outstanding international reputation in management research, learning, development of resources, and journal publishing and works in close cooperation with industry, government and the not-for-profit sectors. We are housed in a state-of-the-art learning environment which, in the highly competitive global market for business education, enhances our ability to attract the best and brightest students, staff and researchers from around the world.

The Discipline of Finance is highly regarded and ranked consistently in top 20 in the QS World Rankings. The discipline also has a very active research agenda covering major topic areas of finance. The discipline teaches course work programs to both undergraduates and postgraduates with two undergraduate majors (finance and banking) and three postgraduate specialisations (finance, quantitative finance and banking). There is a vibrant undergraduate honours program and PhD program.

The discipline is seeking to appoint two Associate Professors or Professors of Finance who will:

  • provide research leadership and conduct individual and joint research
  • introduce colleagues to research contacts and research networks
  • foster a collaborative and collegial approach to research
  • actively contribute to the governance of the discipline

With a PhD in Finance, you will have expertise in one or more of the major areas of finance, as well as the ability to develop and maintain strong links with business and industry. You will be able to demonstrate excellence and leadership in teaching, including a track record of successful PhD supervision, and be a leading researcher in your field with publications in highly ranked international journals and success in obtaining competitive research grants.
