For further information on the Department of Accounting, please visit

Those specialising in any area of accounting are encouraged to apply. However, we seek to appoint to one of these two posts an Assistant Professor with expertise in qualitative accounting research and a focus on the organisational and institutional analysis of accounting to contribute to one of the core strengths of the Department. An ability to contribute more broadly to the activities of the Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation (CARR) for this post also would be particularly welcome.

You will be expected to undertake research in accounting, and to teach accounting at undergraduate and graduate level. We welcome applications from candidates with a completed or nearly-completed PhD in Accounting or related area, but also from early-stage faculty with an emerging record in accounting research.

Candidates with a completed or nearly-completed PhD will be able to demonstrate a developing record of research with potential for leading publications in accounting. Early-stage faculty will be able to demonstrate a record of prior publications as well as a trajectory of research with potential for further leading publications in accounting.

You will also have skills in the teaching of accounting.

The other criteria that will be used when shortlisting for this post can be found on the person specification, which is attached to this vacancy on the LSE’s online recruitment system.

The appointment is expected to commence on 1 September 2017.
