Open Rank, Accounting Faculty

Job Description & Qualification

The Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia invites applications for Open Rank tenure-track or non-tenure-track faculty in the Accounting area, starting in Fall 2023.

Competitive tenure-track faculty will stand out with respect to both research productivity and teaching potential. We are open to appointments at the Assistant and (non-tenured) Associate Professor levels in all areas of accounting. The ideal experienced candidate will have recently obtained a tenure-track position and began building a notable record of scholarship and teaching. The promise of such is required for Assistant Professor candidates. All tenure-track candidates must have a terminal degree, or be expected to complete a terminal degree in accounting, by Winter of 2023.

Competitive non-tenure-track (academic general) faculty applicants will have achieved recognition for regional, national, or international accomplishments in relevant professional fields, and be able to teach a variety of topics successfully at the graduate level, integrate professional experience into academic settings, and influence practice through thought leadership.

All applicants must be able to excel teaching in a "student-centered", discussed-based environment that requires creating inclusive classrooms with diverse audiences and must also be able to develop curriculum materials (e.g. cases) for both internal and external use. Applicants should be willing and able to uphold Darden community values, to contribute as leaders to Darden as well as academic and professional communities, to engage with managers to advance practice through thought leadership, and to contribute to student activities and the academic life of the Darden School.

Our faculty teach in our full-time, residential MBA in Charlottesville, Virginia, and professional MBA programs at our Rosslyn campus in Northern Virginia.

Darden is an organization with a strong culture that reflects a commitment to our mission and values. Candidates who are invited for personal interviews will be asked to discuss how they could contribute to a scholarly community that aspires to generate transformational learning experiences through teaching, research and curriculum development that inspire and engage a diverse audience. (Read the University of Virginia’s Commitment to Diversity Statement and Darden’s actions).
