A globally outstanding centre of teaching and research excellence, a warm and friendly place to work, a unique and historic setting - Durham is a university like no other.

As one of the UK's leading universities, Durham is an incredible place to define your career. The University is located within a beautiful historic city, home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and surrounded by stunning countryside. Our talented scholars and researchers from around the world are tackling global issues and making a difference to people's lives.

We believe that inspiring our people to do outstanding things at Durham enables Durham people to do outstanding things in the world. Being a part of Durham is about more than just the success of the University, it's also about contributing to the success of the city, county and community.

Our University Strategy is built on three pillars of research, education and wider student experience, but also on our keen sense of community and of inspiring others to achieve their potential.

The Department of Accounting at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the role of Professor (Research and Education). The Department is QS ranked 76th worldwide, 13th in the UK. We welcome applications from those with research and education interests in the broad field of accounting and we are particularly eager to hear from applicants who can demonstrate an interest in our three strategic themes of digitalisation, sustainability and public accountability.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to make a major contribution to the development of internationally excellent research and teaching while allowing you unrivalled opportunities to progress and embed your career in an exciting and progressive institution. For more information, please visit our department pages.

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

Professors are encouraged to focus on quality and innovation throughout your teaching and research activity. But we'll also look to you to provide genuine leadership and citizenship - not just in your field, but across the University environment, and in the way your department functions administratively.

Academic colleagues will have the freedom to deliver teaching and pursue research that is world leading and world changing, in terms of originality, significance and rigour. And we'll support your ambitions to publish internationally significant research in your area of interest, provide resources to enable you to attend conferences and to fund research activity.

Applicants must demonstrate research excellence in the field of accounting, with the ability to take a leading role in the development of the Department's research and teaching, and to fully engage in the services, citizenship and values of the University.

We strive to provide a working and teaching environment that is inclusive and welcoming and where everyone is treated fairly with dignity and respect. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate these key principles as part of the assessment process.
