Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow in Corporate Financial Decisions and Financial Reporting

Strathclyde Global Talent Programme

Be bold.  Be innovative.  Be a 'Strathclyder' 

We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is bold and ground breaking, placing us amongst the world’s leading international technological universities. We are vibrant, dynamic and passionate about solving the challenges facing society and industry through our cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge-exchange with global partners.

Through our Strathclyde Global Talent Programme we will recruit up to 60 outstanding academic colleagues – including Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellows - in areas of strategic importance.  One area of importance is Corporate Financial Decisions and Financial Reporting. 

This multi-disciplinary research area includes research that addresses major challenges in the key areas of Investments, Corporate Financial Decisions and Financial Reporting. These areas are financial management topics which include aspects of accounts and finance. Further contribution to the knowledge and understanding of these themes is expected to enhance the wealth and wellbeing of society in general and corporate partners in particular. Research will help corporate managers, investors and policy makers to channel the rare resources from less efficient to more efficient investment opportunities

Normally appointed at Lecturer level, the Fellowship will last for 5 years during which you will be supported to establish your career as a research leader and achieve rapid career progression. Fellows who meet the criteria for promotion by the end of the 5 year period will be transferred to an open-ended ("tenured" equivalent) academic appointment.  You will also benefit from research portfolio growth, reduced teaching load and administrative duties and a range of support.

You will hold a PhD, have postdoctoral research experience, an emerging high quality publications record and research interests which align with our strategic focus.  You must be able to articulate your research vision.
