Western Kentucky University invites applications for a tenure-track pedagogical assistant professor position in the Accounting Department of the Gordon Ford College of Business. Employment begins with the Fall 2021 semester.
The position requires participation in the development and advancement of the department's undergraduate curriculum, the advisement of student organizations, and the service activities that support the goals of the department, college, and university. A pedagogical faculty member is also required to remain current and relevant through continued professional development and engagement related to his/her professional backgrounds and experience. Teaching responsibilities include the delivery and coordination of undergraduate accounting principles courses (financial and managerial) and potential coverage of upper-level courses where the candidate's expertise meets the department's needs. Additional consideration will be given to applicants with teaching experience at the collegiate level. Since the university does not require pedagogical faculty to engage in scholarly research, a 4-4 course load will be assigned.
A graduate degree from an accredited U.S. institution.
A minimum of 18 hours of graduate-level accounting courses.
An accounting-related professional certification.
A minimum of 5 years of accounting-related professional work experience.
