Assistant Professor of Accounting

The University of Southern Maine’s Department of Accounting and Finance seeks to fill two full-time tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in Fall of 2018. We are looking for applicants with an active research profile and committed to undergraduate and graduate teaching, including advising and supervising internships. We welcome applications from all areas, especially auditing, accounting information systems, financial accounting, or managerial accounting. As part of a cohort of incoming business faculty, the successful hires will have the rare opportunity to shape the future of an AACSB-accredited Business school. For more information about the undergraduate and graduate programs in the School of Business, please visit our website at usm.maine.edu/sb.


The University of Southern Maine (USM) is dedicated to providing students with a high-quality, accessible, affordable education.  USM’s strategic focus is in alignment with the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities and we are seeking to become a Carnegie Engaged University by the year 2020.  USM offers Baccalaureate, Master's, and Doctoral programs, providing students with rich learning and community engagement opportunities in the arts, humanities, politics, health sciences, business, mass communications, science, engineering, and technology.  Further information on USM can be found at www.usm.maine.edu.     


USM’s three environmentally friendly campuses are unique, yet all share the extensive resources of the university — and all are energized through strong community partnerships.  Offering easy access to Boston, plus the ocean, mountains and forests of coastal, inland and northern Maine, USM is at the heart of Maine's most exciting metropolitan region:

  • Our Portland campus is located in "one of America’s most livable cities," according to Forbes magazine, which also ranks Portland among the top 10 for job prospects.  A creative and diverse community on Maine’s scenic coast, Portland is nationally known as a "foodie" hot spot!
  • USM’s beautiful residential Gorham campus  supports and celebrates excellence in academics, athletics, music and the arts and is home to ten Living Learning Communities and six Residential Communities.
  • Our Lewiston campus is home to USM’s innovative and richly diverse Lewiston-Auburn College. This Central Maine campus integrates classroom, community and workplace, and provides a small college experience with the resources of a large university.


Qualifications: Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Accounting from an AACSB-accredited university by the time of appointment.  ABD's with strong likelihood of Ph.D. completion may also be considered at a Lecturer rank until completion, within one year of appointment, at which time the appointment will convert to a tenure-track position. The successful candidate must be committed to excellence in teaching across multiple areas, scholarship that leads to peer-reviewed publications, and departmental/university service.  Related business experience and/or professional certification would be a plus.

Apply online at: http://usm.maine.edu/hrs/job-opportunities. You will create an applicant profile and complete an application.  You will need to upload a cover letter, resume/curriculum vitae and a list of the names and contact information for three references. You will also need to complete the affirmative action survey, the self-identification of disability form, and the self-identification of veteran status form.  


Review of applications will begin immediately.  To ensure full consideration, materials should be submitted by February 16, 2018.  Materials received after that date will be considered at the discretion of the university.

Appropriate background screening will be conducted for the successful candidate.
