Assistant Professor, Tenure Stream Appointment, Accounting, F.C. Manning School of Business

Acadia University

Positions # 30116 and # 30126: Acadia’s F.C. Manning School of Business invites applications for two tenure stream positions at the rank of assistant professor for appointments with a start date of July 1, 2021.

Ideal candidates will have a Canadian Chartered Professional Accounting (CPA) designation, a graduate degree with a focus in accounting (masters or Ph.D.), and significant industry experience in auditing and assurance, data analytics, taxation (personal and corporate), and complex accounting. While preference will be given to candidates with a Ph.D. in accounting (complete or in progress), those with a graduate degree (MBA, M.Sc. or equivalent) and a CPA designation will be considered. For one of the positions, preference will also be given to applicants with training in CPA Canada’s In-Depth Tax program.

The successful candidates’ teaching responsibilities will be a mix of courses from the following areas: financial accounting, managerial accounting, auditing and taxation. Evidence and commitment to excel in both teaching and research is essential, including the potential to contribute to curriculum development and pedagogical innovation in areas such as experiential and technology-enhanced learning. Commensurate with their interests and experience, the successful candidates will also fulfill service roles that contribute positively to the School of Business, Acadia University as a whole, and outside professional communities. For accounting faculty this includes providing career advice to students and maintaining active relationships with employers and professional governing bodies such as the CPA Atlantic School of Business.

Applicants should email an application letter, curriculum vitae, three signed letters of reference, and supporting information regarding their teaching experience to:

Paul Callaghan, Director, F.C. Manning School of Business, Acadia University,
