The Department of Accounting

The Department of Accounting at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the role of Assistant Professor (Teaching). We welcome applications from those with teaching interests in the broad field of accounting and we are particularly eager to hear from applicants with a focus on data analytics in the context of accounting, sustainability and public accountability.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to contribute to the development of the Department of Accounting teaching and curriculum, while allowing you unrivalled opportunities to progress and embed your career in an exciting and progressive institution. The successful candidate should be eager to take on managerial/administrative roles in the Department (such as Programme Director) and uphold teaching excellence.

You will be expected to engage in scholarship related to pedagogy, noting that any other independent research (beyond pedagogy) is not part of this post. The appointment will be on the University's 'Teaching Track' career path, which provides clearly defined opportunities for progression against defined criteria. This is supported by a Teaching Track Academic Development Network, at University level.

Durham University Business School has twelve research centres, two of which have close links to the Department of Accounting. These are the Ethical Finance Accountability and Governance (EFAG) centre which focuses on sustainability/sustainable development goals and the International Centre of Public Accountability (ICOPA) which focuses on public accountability. In addition, the Durham Rutgers Accounting Analytics Network (DRAAN) sits within the Accounting Department and focusses on data analytics/AI.
