Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in Finance
Cranfield School of Management has long been recognised as a leading centre of excellence for research and teaching in Accounting and Finance, and we are seeking to further strengthen this. Our MSc in Finance & Management programme is currently ranked 4th in the UK by the Financial Times amongst the top finance masters programmes worldwide. There is a thriving research culture in the Finance and Accounting group.
The new appointment will be expected to teach on Master/MBA programmes and on executive and customised education programmes. As such, we are looking for a dynamic, ambitious and inspiring academic to contribute to the continued development of corporate finance research and teaching. In particular, we are looking for an academic with specialism in one or several of the areas of:
a) Private equity;
b) Mergers and acquisition;
c) Corporate restructuring;
d) Corporate financial strategy;
e) Financial management.
For the Lecturer post, you must have a PhD and a growing track record in teaching graduate and executive education. The successful individual will be expected to have recent research publications in high-quality journals (3 or above as per CABS and/or Financial Times lists).
For the Senior Lecturer post you must have a PhD and a strong track record in teaching graduate and executive education. You will have publications already in high-quality journals (3 and 4 as per CABS and/or Financial Times lists), and continue to be research active with some grant capture activity and ambition. The successful individual will be expected to make a significant contribution to the research excellence framework (REF) 2021.
A recognised teaching qualification will also normally be held, but if not, you will be required to enrol on a Cranfield-run course to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching, Learning and Development.
At Cranfield we value Diversity and Inclusion, and aim to create and maintain a culture in which everyone can work and study together harmoniously with dignity and respect and realise their full potential.
