Research Associate in Mergers and Acquisitions

Entrepreneurship & Strategy
Salary:   £27,831 to £32,236
Closing Date:   Thursday 08 November 2018
Interview Date:   Wednesday 28 November 2018
Reference:  A2449

Lancaster University Management School has significant strength in Mergers and Acquisitions research with faculty including Professors Duncan Angwin, Florian Bauer, Susan Cartwright and Dr Ioannis Thanos. We are now seeking to appoint a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate for the research field of Mergers and Acquisitions. As such, you should fit into the M&A research profile of the Strategy and Entrepreneurship department (especially strategic, organisational, and procedural perspectives of M&A). You must be experienced in either qualitative research methods or quantitative research methods. 

You will work closely with members of the department in the field of M&A and as such, you will be actively involved in existing and ongoing research projects but will also have the possibility to develop an own research agenda. In doing so, the candidate will receive support from members of the department. Research in the department is usually conducted with international cooperation partners. As such, the successful candidate has the possibility to also collaborate with network partners of senior colleagues and to engage with managers and decision makers. Next to research activities, engagement plays an important role at the department of Entrepreneurship and Strategy. Thus, you are also expected to participate in knowledge dissemination activities. 

You will join a team working collaboratively with colleagues in other UK but also international universities, managers and decision-makers in the field of M&A. We offer an inspiring research setting that immediately integrates you in existing projects but also supports you in developing your own research profile.  

The Faculty provides a research environment that strongly supports the individual needs of each employee, promoting a healthy work-life balance. We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, as well as the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education and research.

This post is initially for 18 months commencing at the beginning of 2019.

We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
