Postdoctoral Researcher in Finance

KU Leuven


Taken en verantwoordelijkheden

The postdoctoral researcher will be able to develop his/her own research agenda within one of the key research areas of the Department. Although candidates from all fields of finance can apply, a strong preference will be given to researchers in empirical corporate finance. Next to the traditional postdoctoral research activities (i.e. conducting research which aims to be published in high quality international journals, active participation at international conferences and seminars, coaching of PhD students within the field, etc.), the position also entails a limited amount of educational activities (teaching and supervision of master theses).

Profiel kandidaat

  • You hold a PhD in Business, Economics, or a related field; candidates in the final stages of their PhD may also apply.
  • You have a strong interest in finance related topics, preferably in empirical corporate finance.
  • You have excellent command of both written and spoken English.
  • You have a proactive, self-directed approach to work.
  • A proven publication track record is a positive trait, but publication potential is highly important as well
  • Teaching experience is a positive trait, but is not required.

Geboden wordt

We offer employment as a full-time postdoctoral researcher in a stimulating environment for a period of 1 year (which may be extended). The starting date for the PostDoc is October 1st 2017, but there is some flexibility to fit the selected candidate’s preferences. Your main office will be in Antwerp, but some research activities may take place at the Leuven campus.
