Faculty Positions in Financial and Management Accounting
ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY: Erasmus School of Economics is one of the leading economics schools in Europe. The Accounting Auditing & Control (AAC) group is part of the School's Department of Business Economics. Together with the Accounting & Control group at the Rotterdam School of Management it forms the Erasmus Accounting Research Group. The Erasmus Accounting Research Group has a strong research tradition and an international orientation, as evidenced by publications in top journals, research collaboration with academics at leading U.S. schools, an international seminar series and a U.S. style Ph.D. program. It is currently in a process of growth and rapid development to establish itself as one of the primary accounting research groups in Europe. The group's research interests are concentrated in two main areas: markets-based financial accounting research and behavioral and experimental management accounting research. Erasmus University has access to excellent research facilities, including most major databases (WRDS, CRSP, Compustat, Datastream, Bloomberg, I/B/E/S, TAQ, etc.), a state-of-the-art behavioral lab and an experimental economics lab.
