Southampton Business School has an ambitious quality driven strategy, which will see us strengthen our position as a world-class Business School in research, education and enterprise. As an AMBA and AACSB accredited Business School we are seeking to recruit a number of outstanding individuals for key research and teaching positions in a number of disciplines as outlined below to play a crucial role in the School achieving its vision. Applications will be considered from candidates interested in part time hours of 0.6FTE and above.

The Business School is a strong part of the University with successful undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, a large PhD portfolio as well as an MBA and DBA.  

The Department of Accounting brings together internationally renowned academics that research on, and teach in, a wide range of accounting, accountability, finance and governance topics with an increasing and unique emphasis on corporate governance, financial reporting, social and environmental accounting, taxation and contemporary accounting issues. Colleagues in the Department have published in leading journals, such as the Review of Accounting Studies, British Journal of Management, Leadership Quarterly, Journal of World Business Accounting, British Accounting Review amongst others.
