Salary: Senior Staff, salary to be determined by the Vice Chancellor

Here at De Montfort University, our success is down to the professionalism, creativity and aspiration of our talented academics. It means we’ve already achieved worldwide acclaim, and have been awarded Gold under the Teaching Excellence Framework. But now we want to go even further. By investing £130 million, we’ll deliver even more innovative research facilities and create inspirational learning environments. But our ambitions will rely on academics who are just as ambitious. People like you.

Our Accounting and Finance department is one of the largest in Europe, with an excellent reputation for student satisfaction. In this vital role, we’ll look to you to undertake research that results in peer-reviewed publications in the field of Accounting. Building up and extending existing research traditions in this field and working in collaborative research teams within and across disciplines in the wider university, you’ll support more junior researchers and lead by example to develop our strong research community.

To succeed you’ll need a PhD in Accounting, an excellent research and publication track record containing internationally recognised research, and should have experience of doctoral research supervision to completion. You should also have strong interests in the theory, pedagogy and practice of accounting. Specifically, you’ll be a confident teacher of financial accounting, management accounting, tax and audit.

When you join, you’ll instantly become part of a vibrant and welcoming community. It means you’ll enjoy everything from generous annual leave and flexible hours, to NUS discount and health benefits. We’ll also support you from the very first day with a comprehensive induction programme. And with access to our Academic Professional Development site, you’ll continue to progress both personally, and professionally.
