The University of Auckland,

  • Live and work in the world’s fourth most cosmopolitan city (World Migration Report), in the world’s most prosperous (Legatum) and least corrupt (Transparency International) nation
Sustained growth in demand for Graduate School of Management (GSM) programmes has created an opportunity for us to grow our team by appointing a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Associate Professor in Accounting (continuing position). We welcome applications from highly motivated, research-active Accounting academics, preferably with expertise in Financial Accounting.

About us

The University of Auckland's ranking in the top 100 of the 2018 QS World Universities Ranking (ranking top in New Zealand in 37 out of 40 subject areas including Accounting, Business and Management and Economics) confirms both its status as New Zealand's pre-eminent research-led university and its place amongst the top 1% of universities worldwide.

The GSM is a multi-disciplinary department with faculty characterised by their desire to make a difference to business in New Zealand and abroad through their international perspective and connections they foster. The small team of GSM accounting academics interacts with the much larger team in the Department of Accounting and Finance. The discipline of Accounting and Finance at the University of Auckland is ranked within the top 50 worldwide by the 2017 QS World Universities Ranking.

The GSM enhances the University of Auckland's well-established reputation for delivering high value, relevant and challenging learning experiences that maximise the employment outcomes for our graduates. Our faculty works collaboratively, alongside educational development and learning technology professionals, to deliver a high-quality student experience.

Who are we looking for?

As you will contribute to the development and delivery of applied and practice-based, research-informed, and demand-driven curricula for MBA, PGDip (post-experience), and Business Masters (pre-experience) programmes as well as Executive Education, it is essential you have experience (i) designing and delivering accounting courses at the postgraduate level and (ii) engaging with internationally diverse postgraduate student cohorts. In addition, you will have a track record of quality research outputs that will enable you to engage in research and supervision within, and desirably across, disciplinary boundaries.

All applications should include the following documentation, combined as a single document:

  • A cover letter clearly indicating rank of interest
  • A Curriculum Vitae
  • A statement of your research programme, including a full record of publications
  • A statement and substantiation of your teaching philosophy
