Responsibilities/Job Description

The newly appointed professor is expected to maintain a close relationship with the professional field and oversight bodies, to make a substantive contribution to auditing education and to both scientific and socially relevant research in the accountancy domain.

Responsibilities and duties: The position encompasses the regular duties of a professor in the areas of teaching, research and help with administration. The duties include:

  • contributing with practice driven research directions for the development of successful academic research activities within the Faculty
  • participating in, and contributing to, multidisciplinary research within the University’s key focal areas
  • participating in education at the level of Bachelor, Master, Executive Master and other executive programs
  • contributing to curriculum development on audit and assurance at all levels
  • inspiring Dutch and European businesses and other organizations in cooperation with the research programme accounting
  • participating in practically-oriented research
  • contributing to the international reputation and societal network of the University of Groningen on audit and assurance
