Assistant Professor in Accountancy – Tenure Track
John Carroll University’s John M. and Mary Jo Boler School of Business (BSOB) invites applications for a tenure track position in the Department of Accountancy at the assistant professor level beginning Fall 2015. We are only interested in people with one of the following specialties: Cost Accounting or Accounting Information Systems. Our AIS course has a heavy focus on internal controls. Accordingly, people with a background or sub-specialty in Auditing will be considered for the AIS position; individuals with a specialty in information systems will not.
The minimum degree requirement is a PHD or DBA (advanced ABD considered) with a major in accounting from an AACSB accredited program. CPA certification and practical experience are preferred, but not required. Faculty members who teach on a research load teach nine hours per semester (3 classes, usually one per year at the graduate level) and serve as academic advisors to undergraduates (advising responsibility is phased in). Class sizes generally vary between 20-30 students.
