As a faculty within the University of Gothenburg with its close to 50 000 students and more than 6 000 employees, the School of Business, Economics and Law provides a stimulating research environment and is located in the heart of Gothenburg, a city rated highly for its living quality.
The School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, is hereby inviting one post-doc in corporate finance/financial accounting with an estimated start during 2020. This post-doc will be financed by a scholarship provided by the Department of Business Administration, in the sections Industrial and Financial Management and Accounting.

Our school offers an excellent research environment, and together with the Centre for Finance (CFF) roughly 30 researchers are active in the fields of Corporate Finance/Financial Accounting.
Applicants should hold a recent, or be close to finishing, a PhD in corporate finance, financial economics, accounting, managerial economics, or a related area. The degree will be considered recent if it has been passed within the last three years, however parental leave and other circumstances will be taken into account when assessing the eligibility of the PhD and should therefore be stated in the application. Research potential is our key selection criterion for the advertised position. The successful candidate will be expected to carry out research suitable for publication in leading or highly ranked journals within the candidate’s fields. Ability to cooperate and personal suitability are also important criteria.

The scholarship is intended to cover the equivalent of salary, insurance and expenses.
Work assignments
This position mainly consists of research within the area of Corporate Finance/Financial Accounting.
