Salary and benefits are competitive with peer institutions. Responsibilities include teaching nine credit hours per semester, conducting research leading to quality refereed journal publications and conference presentations, and providing service at the Department, College, and/or University level.

Teaching experience, and business experience are desirable. Candidates with a professional license (CPA, IMA, CISA, or related international certificates) are preferred. Candidates interested in working closely with the business community in both teaching and research are encouraged to apply.

In addition to teaching, the selected candidate is required to actively participate in professional activities sufficient to maintain appropriate qualifications under AACSB standards. The candidate is expected to participate in student engagement activities, mentoring, and on-line classes.
