For nearly 40 years Redeemer University has prepared the next generation of Christian leaders. Redeemer is committed to a Christian undergraduate liberal arts and sciences education that develops the whole person.
Rooted in a Reformed Biblical worldview, and including a diverse community representing over 50 Christian denominations, Redeemer seeks to answer the fundamental questions about where we fit into God’s story while it prepares students to engage in society’s biggest challenges. A rigorous academic program with an interdisciplinary core is supported by a vibrant community characterized by caring discipleship. The result is an enriching and transformational educational experience integrating faith, learning and service.
Redeemer offers 34 majors and streams that lead to either a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Education or Bachelor of Business Administration degree. The university expects to welcome about 1000 students in the fall, served by approximately 200 faculty and staff.
Redeemer is looking for a full-time Accounting Professor to join its faculty in the School of Business. Business is one of the largest academic programs at Redeemer and has had large incoming classes in recent years. Our graduates have the benefits of a liberal arts and sciences core, a broad foundation in business, and then specialize in Accounting, Marketing, Management, or Not-for-Profit Management. Most students in the Accounting concentration opt for the Co-op Program, which involves two eight-month work placements. Our Co-op Program is accredited by both CPA Ontario and CEWIL Canada.
Students who graduate from Redeemer’s Accounting concentration have a superb track record for success in the CPA program and its predecessor designations. We typically have more demand for accounting graduates than we can fill. The successful applicant will share responsibility for maintaining those high standards and ensuring that Redeemer’s BBA in Accounting keeps pace with changes in accounting standards and technology.
This position carries a teaching load of 6 to 7 courses per year (65% of the position’s responsibilities), with a focus on Accounting (Financial and Managerial), Taxation and/or Auditing. Expertise in other areas of Business, such as Strategy, Operations Management, or Data Analytics is an asset. In addition, 25% of the position is dedicated to academic research, professional writing (e.g., writing Ivey cases) and/or professional consulting; and 10% of time is devoted to service to the School of Business, University, and wider community. Flexibility exists to vary this breakdown of responsibilities and could include remaining active in public practice or industry instead of doing research. Due to two projected retirements within the School of Business over the next few years, we are looking for someone with leadership qualities and administrative gifts who welcomes a challenge.
This would be an ideal career transition for a professional accountant with experience in public practice and/or industry who is passionate about training the next generation of accountants and business people. Applicants should possess a CPA designation and significant experience. Preference would be extended to applicants who also possess a MAcc or MBA or who would like to pursue a DBA or PhD, and those with teaching experience.
Salary is dependent upon experience and qualifications. Redeemer offers an excellent benefits package, including a pension plan, insurance, and medical/dental coverage. Vacation is generous, starting at four weeks. The rewards of mentoring young people are priceless!
Interested applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching quality, and a list of three individuals who have agreed to provide letters of reference should the applicant advance to a later stage of the interviewing process. In addition to these materials, applicants must include a one- to two-page statement describing their own Christian faith commitment, its alignment with Redeemer’s mission, and its impact on their academic and professional work. Redeemer University offers equal employment opportunities to qualified applicants. In accordance with Canadian Immigration requirements, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be considered first for this position.
