Accounting – Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois, invites applications for two full-time tenure-track positions in Accounting at the Assistant Professor rank beginning the 2018-2019 academic year. Augustana College is a selective liberal arts college of approximately 2,500 students, most of whom live on a wooded 115-acre campus.  Rock Island, Illinois, is part of the Illinois-Iowa Quad Cities along the Mississippi River, a diverse metropolitan area with 400,000 residents, located about three hours west of Chicago and 45 minutes east of Iowa City, home of the University of Iowa.
Master’s degree in Accounting and CPA required.  PhD in Accounting or related discipline, DBA, or other appropriate doctorate preferred.  2-3 year teaching experience at the collegiate level is strongly preferred.  Candidates should be able to demonstrate the ability to bring excellence and innovation into the classroom, maintain a strong continuing record of scholarship, and possess attributes leading to successful professional service.  One position includes teaching primarily financial accounting courses and the other primarily tax accounting courses.  Both positions require departmental duties in support of the traditional accounting curriculum while strengthening the connection of the department to the liberal arts areas on the campus. As an undergraduate residential liberal arts college Augustana values advising and mentoring of students.  We also have expectations that faculty will engage in campus wide service.
