Assistant Professor of Accounting (30390-028)

University of Warwick - Warwick Business School - Accounting Group

Previous applicants need not apply.

WBS is a research-led, triple-accredited university-based business school with a portfolio of world-class programmes.

We are continuing our search for top-flight talent to join our outstanding faculty by inviting applications for the role of Assistant Professor in Accounting. We are looking for an internationally oriented, ambitious yet collegial scholar who will contribute to the existing research streams within the School’s Accounting group.

We especially welcome applications from researchers with a strong social science background, and whose research has the potential to contribute to the School’s research agenda in terms of top quality publications, grant income and impact. We welcome applications from candidates interested in any aspect of Accounting, however, we are particularly keen to appoint someone whose research (and teaching) addresses management accounting.

The successful candidate will have completed or will be near the completion of their doctoral studies, have a demonstrable capacity to publish at the very top level and have an ambitious future research agenda. Evidence of an emerging record of publishing in high quality academic journals would be an advantage.

We strongly endorse the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the organisation in promoting gender equity.
