Assistant Professor of Accounting

Job description

The Business and Economics Department at Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor of Accounting beginning July 1, 2019.  Other faculty ranks may be considered.

Hollins is an independent, liberal arts university offering undergraduate education for women, selected graduate programs for men and women, and community outreach initiatives.  The business program strives to prepare students for leadership positions in a global society, and offers a major with tracks in general business, international business, and finance, and a new entrepreneurship track, along with business and international business minors and a new minor in entrepreneurship. 

The position carries a teaching load of three undergraduate, face-to-face courses per semester.  Other duties include maintaining scholarly activity in the form of publications and presentations, developing curriculum, advising students, participating in department and university service, and engaging with the local business community.  The ideal candidate will be a broadly trained accountant, and will be expected to teach core courses, including financial and managerial accounting, as well as advanced topics, such as cost accounting.  Additional consideration will be given to candidates with expertise in other areas of business.

Applicants must demonstrate a clear understanding of and commitment to teaching excellence and innovation at a liberal arts institution.  Hollins University is committed to the core values of diversity and inclusion.  Applications are sought from members of underrepresented populations and those who have demonstrated success working with diverse populations.  Candidates are encouraged to comment, either in their cover letter or in a separate statement, on how their writing, research, teaching, and/or service experience will enhance the institution’s efforts to support these values and an increasingly diverse student population.

Candidates must have a master’s in accounting or a master’s of business administration, finance, or taxation, in addition to being a CPA.  Prior teaching experience in accounting at the undergraduate level is preferred, as is professional or industry experience in accounting.

Qualified candidates should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a separate statement of teaching philosophy, three letters of recommendation, and graduate school transcripts (unofficial transcripts are acceptable) to [email protected].  Preference will be given to applications received by December 31, 2018, but the search will continue until the position is filled.  Final candidates will be subject to a criminal history background check.

Founded in 1842 as Virginia's oldest chartered women's college, Hollins provides abundant opportunities to every undergraduate student for research, study abroad, and leadership training, and guarantees access to real-world experience through internships around the globe supported by an extensive alumnae network and the Hollins Institute for Entrepreneurial Learning. 

Hollins University is an equal opportunity employer.
