Creative, ambitious and keen to develop transformative research, you will relish this excellent opportunity to drive your academic career to a higher level. As an impressive early career academic, you’ll recognise that securing a Presidential Academic Fellowship at the University of Manchester will empower you to unlock your potential. In addition to a good salary for the duration of your Fellowship, you’ll receive several thousand pounds per annum for research support costs and access to key technology platforms. Your time during this award will be initially dedicated to research, with no or minimal teaching in the first year, and minimal teaching in the second year. Thereafter teaching would increase with each subsequent year of the fellowship. You can look forward to mentoring and assistance in winning external funding and awards.

 

As a Presidential Academic Fellow, you will explore interrelations between innovation in the financial sector and the macroeconomy. With recent advances in fintech, such as cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, seemingly set to disrupt the status quo, there has never been a more important moment to explore these innovations. Many such innovation drivers involve network effects and behavioural aspects. So we’ll look to you to investigate the nexus of evolutionary behavioural finance research and macroeconomics. Along the way, you are likely to contribute to a REF impact case in macro-focused asset management related to Evstigneev’s REF 2014 impact case in mathematical behavioural finance. You’ll enjoy the advantages of excellent resources, thanks to our newly established Centre in Mathematical Research in Economics and Finance.

 

To join us, you will need a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification. You’ll bring to the role a sustained record of publication output. Crucially, you will demonstrate the ability to develop a coherent world-leading research programme, with new concepts and ideas to extend intellectual understanding. You have what it takes to organise resources and deliver results to deadlines. Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills also equip you to build a team, and to inspire and engage students. The determination to win your own funding will be key to your success.
