Senior Lecturer in Finance

Published 2022-11-23

In 2015, the School of Management moved to a new custom built facility on the Swansea University new Science and Innovation (Bay) Campus (representing one of the largest ever investments by a UK University in new facilities). The School occupies a beach front £23 million building. Our Student Experience Strategy is backed by small group teaching, work placements, careers advice, a Student Hub, extended professional services, and greater business engagement – around 250 companies are supporting work placements and student projects in business.

Our Accounting and Finance Department is home to about 30 academics and approximately 1,000 students, with the Hawkes Research Centre and programmes encompassing both accounting and finance subject areas at post-graduate and undergraduate level. In the most recent Times Good University Guide results, the department has improved to 18th place (out of 97 institutions) from 46th place last year for teaching quality.

We are looking to appoint a dynamic researcher as well as a committed teacher in Finance to make a positive contribution to the life of the department. We are particularly interested in applicants with research and teaching interests in:

  • Financial Modelling
  • Financial Analytics
  • The School of Management building provides outstanding facilities with its own media suite and access to extensive accounting and finance databases e.g. Compustat and CSMAR via WRDS, S&P Global Market Intelligence (SNL Financials), FAME and Zephyr. We have also recently established a Finance Lab utilising Refinitiv Workspace (incorporating Datastream) and Factset where students can engage in trading and finance research projects. The School is also home to the innovation hubs of some of our industry partners, such as Pfizer and several spinout companies.
