We seek to add to our community of talented scholars who work in areas at the cutting edge of today’s research in asset pricing, corporate finance, governance and strategy, and risk management. The notion of risk is a common thread underlying our areas of research. Faculty research programs develop and apply valuation methods, computational techniques, econometric methods, and empirical approaches to examine a wide variety of financial phenomena and policy issues. Our research interests are broad and inclusive—roughly balanced between developing new theories of financial markets and institutions and empirically investigating existing financial issues and questions.  We seek candidates with scholarly interests in the areas of Asset Pricing, Corporate Finance, Financial Markets and Institutions, Risk Management, or Investment Management who will engage with this vibrant community.

Prospective candidates must demonstrate the ability to produce original and innovative scholarly work of the highest quality and impact in top Finance and Economics journals. The candidate should be able to teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants must have, or be near completion of, a Ph.D. in finance/economics or a related field. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.

The Finance department believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. We are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive. The Questrom School of Business seeks to continue diversifying our faculty, student and staff ranks, recognizing that diversity of experience and thought deepens the intellectual endeavor. Boston University is an institution with a rich tradition dedicated to inclusion and social justice. We are proud that we were the first American University to award a Ph.D. to a woman.


Applications should include a cover letter, a complete curriculum vitae, three reference letters, and up to three recent publications or working papers in electronic (PDF) format. Applications should be submitted by Friday, November 23, 2018.
