The successful candidate is expected to pursue high quality academic research leading to publications in top journals in the field of accounting; contribute to, develop and deliver excellent teaching in and across the general area of accounting; actively engage in the activities of the Division; and supervise graduate students. A significant reduction in teaching/administration work is given for the first years of probation for a lecturer position.
Within AMBS, the Division of Accounting and Finance is one of the leading, and also one of the largest Accounting and Finance units in Europe and the world, with an outstanding track record of excellence in research and teaching. The Accounting group has considerable research strengths in the areas of auditing and accountability, financial reporting, management accounting, and market-based accounting, with faculty publishing in top journals such as Accounting, Organization and Society, Contemporary Accounting Research, Journal of Accounting Research, Review of Accounting Studies, and The Accounting Review. At the postgraduate level, the Division offers a wide ranging set of specialist MSc degree programmes in both accounting and finance, as well as contributing to MBA and executive education programmes. At the undergraduate level, the Division makes significant contributions to AMBS’ undergraduate programmes in management and in accounting and finance together with the School of Social Sciences. Furthermore, it runs a single honours BSc degree in Accounting, which is one of a very select number of degree programmes in the UK supported and endorsed by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), and has recently launched a BSc degree in Business Accounting in partnership with PwC, which includes placements and offers a fast track to ICAEW qualification.
