Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) is one of four schools within Jönköping University. We offer an international and team-oriented workplace with competitive education programmes, across Bachelor, Master and Doctoral levels, as well as a thriving research environment and many opportunities for personal development. Our mission is to advance the theory and practice of business, with specific focus on entrepreneurship, ownership and renewal. Our guiding principles are: international at heart, entrepreneurial in mind and responsible in action. These principles cut across our mission and all our activities. They signal the role we wish to play in relation to all our stakeholders. JIBS is double-accredited, by EQUIS and AACSB.

OUR OFFER TO YOU
The disciplines of Economics and Business Administration offer a stimulating workplace where you will be a vital contributor to education, research, and outreach activities. JIBS offers opportunities to develop in a truly international environment that attracts talented staff and motivated students worldwide. We are now expanding the disciplines and you have an opportunity to be a part of this.
We are looking for up to three Assistant Professors in Finance to join us. The candidates should have a strong interest in teaching and in doing research influencing both academics and practitioners. The candidates should have excellent communication skills and a clear vocation for academia.
The work tasks comprise teaching activities at bachelor's and master’s levels, research and other services to JIBS that are related to the position. The positions are teaching-oriented with teaching distributed over the academic year, covering a range of topics in finance, and performed primarily in English.
In terms of research, we seek a candidate with research targeted toward high-quality journals but also influences practitioners. The holder of a position is expected to apply for externally funded research grants and contribute with new knowledge that strengthens JIBS.
We highly value and prioritize our strong academic and collegial milieu at JIBS, and physical attendance at the workplace is therefore expected for most of your working time. The positions in Finance are organizationally located at the Faculty of Economics but are highly integrated with teaching and research in Business Administration. A substantial part of the research and education at JIBS are oriented toward our focus areas: entrepreneurship, ownership, and renewal.
In the selection process, we emphasize the person’s ability to take initiative, be autonomous and flexible as well as the ability to co-operate with colleagues. You should be willing to contribute to a dynamic academic environment.
To be eligible for the position, you must hold a PhD in Business Administration, Economics or Finance (or equivalent academic competence). You have documented teaching expertise and experience and have taken a course in teaching and learning in higher education (or acquired the knowledge through experience). You have a strong research profile. Furthermore, you have proven abilities to interact with business and society and have demonstrated an ability to plan, organize and prioritize work effectively. You are fluent in written and spoken English and have excellent communication skills.

- professional experience in the industry and/or leadership
