Massey University and its Massey Business School have made a large commitment to research and scholarship.
This has resulted in Finance at Massey University being ranked No 1 in New Zealand. We are accredited by AACSB, Association of MBA's and are a CFA partner school. The School of Economics and Finance, which is housed in Massey Business School, offers degree and diploma courses at the undergraduate, masters and PhD levels. Our research activities are supported by a collegial research environment, with our faculty being actively engaged in research and publishing in top journals like the American Economic Review, Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Empirical Finance, the Journal of Banking and Finance, among others.
The School invites applications for a full-time tenured track faculty in Finance, to be based at the University’s Wellington campus. In this position, you will be expected to teach finance at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to be responsible for the delivery of some of the School's papers (courses) in this area. You will also be expected to supervise postgraduate students. Supervision of research students in the MBS, MFin and PhD programmes is also expected. We offer low teaching load (typically three courses a year) at both the undergraduate and post graduate levels which can be further reduced with excellent research outcomes. Early career academics will normally have a teaching load of two courses for the first year.
The successful applicant will have a PhD in Finance, and should have a record of research success, or at least be able to produce evidence of such research potential. All specialties of Finance will be considered. You should also have a strong desire to interact closely with a group of diverse international faculty. Consideration could be given to appoint at the University’s Manawatū campus, in Palmerston North, if this is strongly preferred.Job Description Purpose statement
