The position will involve teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, undertaking post-graduate research supervision, contributing actively and positively to the research profile of the Department and contributing to administrative activities. The Department is above all interested in strengthening its teaching in the Master of Financial Management programme, which lies in University of Canterbury's Department of Executive Development Programmes, and in the promotion and use of the School's new Trading Room as a research and teaching resource.

Successful candidates should have a strong and ongoing record of publications in high-quality, internationally recognised academic journals; a demonstrable ability to participate in international research collaborations and to attract external research income; have good teaching skills and a commitment to quality teaching delivery; and be able and willing to contribute to College and professional service activities.
