The Lancaster Centre for Forecasting is led by two of my favorites in the forecasting world, Robert Fildes and Sven Crone. The Centre is home to cutting edge research and consulting, covering the range of forecasting models and methods, as well as real-world forecasting process.
The Centre has announced a Management & Business Development Fellowship, allowing the recipient to develop a research area in Forecasting or Marketing Analytics, as well as gain a PhD.
This is an amazing career opportunity for an academically inclined business forecasting practitioner -- a chance to study with the best and contribute to the field -- and being funded to do so!
From the announcement:
Salary: Grade 8, £37,012 to £46,486
If you’ve been working in Forecasting, Demand Planning, Time Series Analysis/Prediction, or in the area of Data Mining, Business or Marketing Analytics for 5 - 15 years and would like to move into academia, the Lancaster University Department of Management Science is recruiting to a Management and Business Development Fellowship partly funded by ESRC.
We’ll work with you to identify and develop a research area in Forecasting or Marketing Analytics and if you don’t already have a Management Science related PhD, you’ll be expected to gain one whilst on the Fellowship. You’ll need to have at least an excellent first degree and will need to demonstrate that you wish to move into a research active career as a Forecasting/ Analytical Marketing academic in the wider field of Operational Research / Management Science (OR/MS).
