University Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Operations and Technology Management

Salary Competitive
Closing date 14 February 2020

Read more about this role

Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS) is a highly ranked business school, located at the heart of an 800-year old University and within one of the most active and successful entrepreneurship clusters in Europe. Since 1990, the School has forged a reputation as a centre of rigorous thinking and high-impact transformative education.

The Operations and Technology Management (OTM) group at Cambridge Judge is a collegial and ambitious group of 10 faculty. The OTM group has developed a reputation for management research that is rigorous, original and consequential, as evidenced by a strong publication record, high profile media coverage, and the strength of its PhD programme.

The OTM group is looking to recruit a University Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor/Tenured Associate Professor). The group seeks to increase its global visibility further through its research outputs, including publications in top management journals, as well as placing its PhD graduates in academic positions in leading schools. The ideal candidates will have a record of impactful research, as evidenced by publications in top journals and a strong paper pipeline. They will also have excellent teaching experience on premium business school degree programmes (MBA, Executive MBA) and preferably on executive education engagements.

The OTM group is very supportive of research with real-world impact and is particularly welcoming of candidates unafraid to tackle 'grand challenge' topics in organisations and society more widely. The members of the group are actively pursuing research topics that inform their executive teaching and, in turn, choose research priorities motivated by problems identified through executive teaching.

Depending on the experience of the successful candidate, the appointment will be made at the University Lecturer or University Senior Lecturer level. The appointment is anticipated to start on 1 September 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter.

We offer a competitive package of benefits.

Salary £8,850
Closing date 13 February 2020

Read more about this role

The Cambridge Endowment for Research in Finance (CERF) Fellowship scheme is open to lecturers and senior lecturers of the University of Cambridge who do research into some aspect of finance.

The CERF Fellowship comprises of up to 12 fellows from across the University of Cambridge. The current cohort includes fellows from various faculties including Cambridge Judge Business School, StatsLab, Economics and Land Economy. The CERF fellows meet once a term with the CERF Director and Centre Manager, where they discuss CERF initiatives; these meetings are chaired by CERF fellows on a rotating basis. CERF fellows are expected to participate in CERF events, including seminars, and contribute short articles for the CERF website. CERF fellows are asked to present their work at various CERF events throughout the year. CERF fellows will be expected to report on their research activities to the board of CERF managers twice a year. Collaboration within the CERF community is encouraged, and fellows are invited to apply for financial support for their research activities. The scheme advertised will run from Easter term 2020 until Lent term 2022.

The CERF fellows commit, when called upon, to support CERF initiatives at relevant conferences and to attend the Cambridge Finance seminars as well as occasionally reviewing grant application to CERF and supporting recruitment of CERF postdoctoral research associates.

Further to the general remit of CERF, the selection criteria, in addition to already being employed by the University of Cambridge as Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or equivalent are:

  • excellence in research
  • proven commitment to future research in some aspect of finance
  • a willingness to engage with the activities of CERF and Cambridge Finance.

CERF fellows are appointed for two years and the annual remuneration is up to £8,850 per annum. Remuneration is calculated and paid termly, depending on the Fellow’s participation that term. The fellowship is expected to be undertaken in addition to the individual’s existing University role. Fellows who relinquish their position within the University of Cambridge will relinquish the Fellowship. With respect to the scheme’s remit to support junior faculty, Fellows who are promoted to a University post higher than Senior Lecturer will relinquish the Fellowship at the end of their term, and cannot apply for a new tenure.

CERF was founded in 2001 as an independent research centre in the University of Cambridge. The formal objective of CERF is to promote research within the University of Cambridge in all aspects of finance, financial institutions and financial markets, and their relationship with economic behaviour and performance.
