The Questrom School of Business at Boston University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Finance. The position starts July 1, 2018, subject to Provost budgetary approval.

 

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 would be stimulated by and engaged with this vibrant community.

Prospective candidates must demonstrate the ability to produce original and innovative scholarly work of the highest possible quality and impact in top Finance and Economics journals. The candidate should be able to teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels. A Ph.D. degree in Finance/Economics or other closely related area is required. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.

 

DO NOT APPLY THROUGH THE BOSTON UNIVERSITY HR WEBSITE.

 

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 will be accepted until December 1, 2017 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. To ensure full consideration, applications are encouraged to apply early. Campus interviews will commence in September for a July 1, 2018 start.
