    Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Finance Position

    The University of Kentucky seeks to hire one or more tenure-track faculty in finance. We will consider candidates at the assistant, associate, and full professor levels. An endowed chair is a possibility for an exceptionally qualified candidate. Applications are invited from candidates with outstanding quantitative and communications skills and a demonstrated capacity for high-level research. Experienced applicants should have a record of publishing in JF, JFE, and/or RFS or comparable outlets. Screening will begin immediately; we will be conducting interviews at the AFA. The start date is August of 2014.

    The Department

    Over the last six years, nine of the current UK finance faculty collectively published (or had accepted) fifteen papers in JFE (7), RFS (6), and JFQA (2). Three of those papers were prize winners, including the Blackrock/Brennan Prize at RFS and the Fama/DFA and Jensen Prizes at JFE. The finance area at UK has a highly productive core of research-oriented faculty, a vibrant PhD program, and excellent research support. Salary and teaching load are competitive with leading land grant universities.

    In addition, construction has just begun on a new building for the Gatton College, which will include, among other things, a state-of-the-art finance-oriented classroom facility.

    The Location

    UK is located in Lexington in the heart of the beautiful Bluegrass region and offers an outstanding, low cost, family-friendly quality of life. Lexington frequently ranks near the top of many ‘Best Cities’ lists, including Forbes, Kiplinger, Parenting, and Livability, and recently was named the ‘most e-literate city’ by The Atlantic.
