FACULTY POSITIONS IN FINANCE:
College of Business (Seoul Campus) at KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) invites applications for tenure-track (or tenured) Assistant, Associate, or Full Professors in all areas of Finance including asset pricing, corporate finance, banking, insurance, green (sustainable) finance, and digital finance (fintech).
Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree or be in the final stage of their dissertation, and be qualified to teach finance courses at undergraduate and graduate levels.
KAIST College of Business was included in ‘Top 100 Global MBA’ and ranked 21st in 2023 ‘Executive Education Ranking’ by Financial Times. It is located in Seoul, Korea and is an AACSB-accredited school with leading MBA and Executive Programs as well as academically-oriented Master and Ph.D. programs. Both our faculty members and PhD students pursue high quality research, and their recent publications appear in top finance journals such as Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, and the Review of Financial Studies. We provide an excellent research environment that includes a low teaching load (6 credit hours per year for the first 3 years, and then 6 to 9 credit hours per year based on individual preference), active seminar series, and subscriptions of the voluminous database widely used by finance academics/practitioners mostly with the WRDS platform and the Bloomberg terminal. In addition, our school offers a comprehensive and generous fringe benefit package including faculty campus housing (free for the first two years) and substantial start-up research funds, which can be used in part to cover moving expenses from around the world.
