The Centre for Analytical Finance (CAF) at the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, considers qualified candidates for the position of Researcher.

Position details

- While at CAF, the selected candidates receive training in finance and econometrics, develop a solid grounding in theoretical and applied finance, and work on various research projects. The training and skills gained enable the candidates to contribute to high-quality finance research projects, usually in association with faculty. They also prepare them for admission to doctoral (or equivalent) programmes at premier business schools in the world, leading eventually to a career in finance research at a top-tier business school or research organisation. Initial compensation for finance PhDs from top programmes is very high ($250K), given the dearth of well-trained researchers.

- Their contract as Researcher is renewable annually.

- The total length of their employment at CAF does not exceed 2 – 3 years. They are expected to proceed to higher degree programmes in three years or sooner. The exact period can be mutually negotiated.

- They are required to help with other CAF activities, including organisation of research databases, conferences and workshops.
