We are looking to appoint three new colleagues to join the Accounting, Finance and Actuarial Science groupone lecturer in Accounting; one lecturer in Finance and one senior lecturer in Accounting and Finance.

We welcome applications from excellent candidates who embrace our vision and passion for advancing sustainable business, community and society and who undertake research in any area of accounting and finance using any theoretical and methodological approaches. You will be joining a thriving community of academics who are leaders in their fields, and who are committed to excellence in research, teaching and outreach. We have established a strong track record of publishing in internationally excellent journals, receiving major indicators of academic esteem, and leading large UKRI funded projects that are delivering significant real-world impact.

Faculty teach across our successful programmes at post and undergraduate level, including our online MBA, planned Executive MBA and shared suite of Finance programmes, with significant opportunities to expand and develop this portfolio. A significant proportion of this teaching is delivered from our new, state of the art Church Lane building. In terms of areas of teaching expertise, we expect candidates to contribute to modules like Auditing; Company Law; Financial Reporting; Contemporary Issues in Accounting and Finance; Sustainability in Accounting; Green Finance and Sustainability investing; Corporate Risk Management; Financial Intermediaries, Instruments and Markets; and Data Analytics in Accounting and Finance.

This interdisciplinary approach, we believe, enriches the vibrancy and relevance of our research and our teaching.
