Research Finance Group

The Finance Group has a strong research and publications profile. We operate in various research disciplines, including Corporate Finance, Investments and Portfolio Management, Behavioural Finance, Risk Management and Derivatives, Market Microstructure and Monetary Economics. Our research is supported by the Tinbergen Institute (TI) and the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM).

We have a strong international focus and promote the exchange of ideas through an active seminar series with speakers from top international academic institutions, a brown-bag seminar for internal speakers, and regular scientific symposia and conferences. Furthermore, the Group has strong ties with other research groups on the Woudestein campus, including the Econometrics Department and the Accounting Group in the Erasmus School of Economics, and the Finance and Accounting department of the Rotterdam School of Management. The ESE Finance Group is an active collaborator within the Erasmus Finance Group, which combines the inter-departmental research activities in finance of the Erasmus University Rotterdam.

We are continuously recruiting PhD students, post-doc researchers and tenure-track personnel. Candidates with a strong research profile may send an email to to apply for a position in our group.
