Job Description

The Questrom School of Business at Boston University invites applications for a tenured Associate or Full Professor in the Department of Finance, with a focus in the areas of Asset Pricing and Mathematical Finance. The position has a start date of 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 asset pricing and mathematical finance and who can contribute to the development and leadership of our Master of Science in Mathematical Finance (MSMF) program. The MSMF program, and the faculty who support it through their research and teaching, are grounded in the fundamental principles of finance in conjunction with the analytical and computational tools of stochastic calculus and optimization theory. Our distinct positioning recognizes mathematical finance as the careful integration of certain practical domains of mathematics with an in-depth study of the theory and practice of modern finance. We seek outstanding candidates who will be stimulated by and engaged with this vibrant cross-disciplinary scholarship community.

Required Skills

Prospective candidates must have a research track record of original and innovative scholarly work of the highest possible quality and impact in the top Finance, Economics, and Math Finance journals and an established scholarly reputation in the area of mathematical finance. In addition, successful candidates should have evidence of intellectual leadership, institutional leadership, successful mentoring of doctoral students, and strong teaching at the graduate level. A Ph.D. or related degree in Finance/Economics, Statistics, Mathematics, or a related field is required. Strong analytical and quantitative skills are a must. Practical experience and engagement with math finance practitioners is a plus. Candidates will be expected to teach exclusively in the MSMF program, engage in leadership discussions as we expand programmatic efforts in this area, and support recruitment efforts for mathematical finance scholars, postdocs, and doctoral students. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.


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 November 15, 2017 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. To ensure full consideration, candidates are encouraged to apply early. Campus interviews will commence in September for a July 1, 2018 start.
