The Position

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.

Responsibilities

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.

Preferred Skills and Attributes

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.

Other Requirements

  • Understanding of and commitment to Redeemer University (mission, values, and Reformed Christian identity) and ability to articulate its mission effectively and persuasively
  • Participation in communal activities that supports and encourage a university campus environment where the holistic development of all persons embodies Christian principles that advance the mission and Christian character of Redeemer University

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!

The Application Process

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.

Direct applications to: Dr. Kyle Spyksma, Interim Vice President, Academic

Submit applications to: facultysearch@redeemer.ca (please quote position title in subject line)

Expiry date: Posted until October 17, 2022 (applications will be reviewed upon submission, so please apply ASAP)

Anticipated start date: July 1, 2023

Applicants are requested to email their application materials and include a statement that articulates their faith perspective and its relation to the mission of Redeemer University. A range of qualifications are evaluated including distinguishing characteristics that demonstrate congruence with our identity as a university in the Protestant and Reformed Christian tradition. Only applicants selected for an interview will be contacted. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
