Aston Business School will be a global leader in bridging the world of intellectual discovery and the practical needs of enterprises and the professions. Our goal is to enhance enterprise and enterprises. We develop individuals to perform better within enterprises and the professions, and to create successful new ventures. We support business leaders in enhancing their organisation’s performance and growth. We advise policy-makers on ways to improve society and the economy. Our research creates new knowledge that furthers these aspirations. It is our particular aim to ensure that the opportunities we create are made available to all members of our society.

The Accounting Department has an impressive publications record and members are editors or on the editorial boards of important accounting journals including: Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal, Accounting History, International Journal of Auditing and Qualitative Research in Accounting & Management.  With a strong tradition of management accounting research, the Department hosts the annual Management Accounting Research Group (MARG) Conference. Research interests focus mainly on accountability and governance. We are seeking to further strengthen these areas. 

We offer dedicated teaching programmes in accounting at undergraduate level (B.Sc. Accounting for Management) and a number at postgraduate level (face-to-face and online). We are seeing significant growth in student numbers. 

We seek enthusiastic, passionate and motivated individuals to contribute to the Department’s research, teaching and enterprise activities. You should possess a relevant good first degree and should have, or expect shortly to obtain, a doctorate in a relevant discipline. In addition you will be expected to have a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching & Learning in Higher Education (or equivalent qualification) and Fellowship of The Higher Education Academy or a strong willingness to obtain such fellowship within 2 years of appointment.

A publication record in refereed journals is desirable along with the clear potential to publish internationally.
