Job description

IÉSEG School of Management – Lille Economics and Management (LEM – CNRS) invites applications for a temporary, 24-month fully-funded postdoctoral position in Finance (Lille Campus, starting September 2023). The selected candidate will be part of the department of “Finance”.



IÉSEG holds the “triple crown” of international accreditations (AACSB, AMBA & EQUIS) and is a member of the “Conférence des Grandes Écoles”. The School offers Bachelor, Master and Post-Graduate Degrees as well as Executive Education programs. IÉSEG is also one of the leading French business schools in terms of research. The IÉSEG Research Center is accredited by the French CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research). Our Lille Campus is in the heart of Northern France (within the triangle made up by London, Paris and Brussels), and our Paris Campus is located in the biggest European business district of “La Défense”. More information on the school can be found here:



The department of “Finance” consists of over 30 full-time academic staff who is involved in several programs, with many of them including topics related to sustainable finance, green finance or climate finance, for instance the Grande Ecole Program, the MSc in Finance, the MSc in Banking, Capital Markets and Financial Technology, the Apprenticeship program in Financial Institutions: Risk, Compliance, and Data Analytics as well as the Executive Program in Financial Management. The School provides ample resources to support a variety of research interests and activities (Business Source Complete, WRDS, CRSP, Refinitiv Tick History, Refinitiv Workspace, Datastream and Bloomberg among others). An overview of our diverse group of professors can be found here: Finance Department



Research will be a strong focus of the selected candidate as he/she/they will contribute to the vibrant research community at IESEG through their commitment to research excellence. He/she/they will join a dedicated research team to conduct high-quality research and will collaborate with Professor Renaud BEAUPAIN. He/she/they will receive regular mentorship and will be expected to disseminate his/her/their research through journal submissions and conference presentations. He/she/they is expected to conduct research with the team members.

The research may focus on topics including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Market microstructure
  • Money markets
  • Collateral markets and repo transactions
  • Financial networks
  • Text mining and machine learning

The selected candidate is expected to hold a PhD and have a proven research track record. Previous research background in (some of) the topics listed above is a plus.

In terms of teaching, the selected candidate will also be involved in some (limited) teaching activities in Finance at the undergraduate, graduate and/or postgraduate level. As such, we are looking for candidates with good teaching skills, and who are fluent in English, as most courses are taught in this language. Professional experience and knowledge of French are a plus, but not a requirement.

Finally, we are looking for candidates who embody our core values of Accomplishment, Responsibility, Integrity, Solidarity, and Engagement, and fit our diverse and international culture in which 50 nationalities are represented. IÉSEG places tremendous value on diversity and inclusion, and we therefore encourage applications from all backgrounds. Underrepresented groups in academia (notably women, minority ethnic groups, people identifying as LGBTQIA+, people with a (non-)visible disability, and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds and/or economically developing countries) are particularly encouraged to apply, as we are highly committed to ensuring that IÉSEG reflects and benefits from the diversity present in society.



The selected applicant is expected to begin his/her/their assignment in September 2023. The appointment is for 24 months. Gross salary is competitive with other European research and academic institutions. The researcher will be based on the campus of IÉSEG School of Management in Lille.

At IÉSEG, we are committed to providing a supportive and engaging work environment. To new faculty members (and their partner), we offer a wide range of resources to help them integrate into the country, culture and school, such as individualized French language courses, a relocation allowance, and housing search assistance. Moreover, all faculty members have access to a competitive salary, as well as benefits such as French social security, a complementary health insurance, meal vouchers, a profit-sharing plan, and a contributory pension scheme. Finally, the school actively promotes research, provides resources for active scholars (e.g., funding for conferences and data collection) and offers competitive financial bonuses for high quality international peer-reviewed research publications.



LEM is a research unit associating the CNRS (the French National Center for Scientific Research), the University of Lille and IÉSEG School of Management. It comprises about 200 researchers and 50 doctoral students in the fields of economics and finance. LEM is a young, internationally oriented, and dynamic laboratory with a strong scientific ambition.
