The LaGrange College Department of Business and Accountancy is seeking to hire an Assistant Professor of Accounting for a full-time 10-month tenure-track position beginning August 1, 2023.  We especially seek to attract ethnic, racial, and gender diverse candidates who may present different levels of experience and perspectives. If you embrace the LaGrange College values of excellence, service, diversity, civility, and inclusion, and are committed to modeling those attributes in our community, we invite you to submit your application for consideration.

The minimum education credential required for the position is a master’s degree in accountancy from an ACBSP- or AACSB-accredited institution, and at least one professional certification, such as a CPA or CMA.  Candidates with a terminal degree, or those with recent or current in-field experience are also encouraged to apply.

The current teaching load is four (4) courses per semester. Courses would include introductory business courses and upper-level accounting courses, including intermediate accounting, advanced accounting, and tax accounting, as well as courses that service the college’s general education curriculum.  Successful candidates will be committed to pedagogical best practices in teaching and assessment and be dedicated to working collaboratively with colleagues inside and outside the department to support the college’s academic mission. Additional responsibilities include advising and mentoring students and helping to develop internship opportunities for juniors and seniors.

Through both a solid grounding in theory and engagement in the field (via internships, collaborative undergraduate research, and other opportunities) accounting students receive a thorough, intensive, and experiential education in the discipline. The ACBSP-accredited program’s engagement in LaGrange College’s undergraduate research program affords students the opportunity to work directly with faculty on research projects that build their professional accounting skills.
