The Department of Finance, Accounting and Risk at Glasgow Caledonian University, based in the Glasgow School for Business and Society, is seeking a Lecturer in Accounting to provide a significant contribution to teaching and research in the general accounting field, with particular emphasis on the following specialisms: Ethics, Critical Accounting and Research Methods.  This is a key area of strength for the University, with a flagship Undergraduate programme, the BA (Hons) Accountancy, MAcc Accountancy Graduate Apprenticeship programme, and Postgraduate offerings in the areas of Accounting, Finance and Regulation and Professional Accountancy (ACCA Route).

As such, the successful applicant will work as part of a close-knit programme team and be expected to teach and manage modules at undergraduate and postgraduate level, take on leadership roles as appropriate, and engage in further development of the subject area to ensure academic rigour and a curriculum that is numerate, challenging and informed by up-to-date scholarly research.

Applicants must possess a PhD or PhD near completion or equivalent higher qualification. Applicants should ideally possess relevant qualifications in the subject area and have demonstrated experience of teaching to the wider academic or professional community, working as part of a team, and have the potential for an emergent research profile in an area consistent with the strategic direction of the Department. Significant industry experience would be looked upon favourably and the post could suit an individual with an extensive industry background able to demonstrate the potential for excellent teaching and research.
