Aston Business School is a Triple Accredited University (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA) and one of the leading Universities in the UK for academic research (in the recent REF, we received 100% for Research Impact), excellent teaching and business engagement. We are only one of three UK institutions with the Small Business Charter Gold Award. In 2020 we were the Guardian’s University of the Year and the THE’s Entrepreneurial University of the Year. We are again shortlisted for the University of the Year in 2021-22. The University actively supports and finances academic and entrepreneurial spin-offs. 

The Accounting Department has 34 staff within it specialising in accounting and closely related subjects. It manages and delivers a successful and popular undergraduate programme in accounting and four postgraduate programmes as well as supporting a wide range of programmes across the rest of the School. The core research areas of focus currently within the department are: auditing, accounting governance and regulation, management accounting/the use of accounting information or decision making, accounting pedagogy and taxation. It also hosts a newly established Research Centre in personal financial wellbeing.

There is a thriving teaching innovation and research culture in the Accounting Department, which has a strong reputation for being both rigorous, timely and relevant. We support participation in international conferences and supervision of PhDs and DBAs and actively support business, policy and community engagement activities and executive education opportunities.

As part of our growth strategy, we are seeking an inspirational and highly motivated individual to contribute to the development of the Department’s research, teaching and PhD/DBA supervision. 

We are keen to grow the above listed current research foci of the department, to strengthen our research profile, impact generation and business/policy support provision. The successful candidate for this role will play a key role in these developments. This could include the establishing of a new research centre within the department.

You will have a good first degree and a Master degree and relevant professional qualifications and/or a PhD, teaching qualifications and experience, or equivalents, in a relevant academic discipline. 

It would also be desirable to have industry experience in accounting if this has been part of your career to date. 

We are looking for people with applied / empirical research skills and a positive attitude and approach to work. We are looking for an individual to play a key role in developing research in the department that will attract external funding and research council income and create impact from high profile external engagement.

This is a fantastic opportunity to take a lead role in supporting the growth of the Accounting department in Aston Business School.
