IWU is an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse workforce, and the department is committed to supporting a culturally and academically diverse professoriate; we encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups and from practicing accountants with doctorates in other fields
Illinois Wesleyan is a nationally ranked, small, private, undergraduate liberal arts university with highly selective admission criteria and a tradition of teaching excellence. Scholarly productivity is supported including collaborative research with faculty and students. The University community prides itself on a strong rapport among students, faculty, and staff.
Consistent with the University's mission that emphasizes integration of liberal arts and professional education, the Department of Accounting strives for excellence in undergraduate accounting education by preparing accounting professionals with a strong applied and theoretical foundation in accounting and business. Our graduates are widely respected for their analytical skills, ability to communicate, and leadership potential.

In addition, the successful candidate is required to hold professional certification (CPA or similar), and have relevant professional work experience in the accounting industry. Ideally, candidates will be able to contribute to the university’s broader curriculum as well, including general education courses teaching writing and critical thinking. The university and department are committed to the recruitment, inclusion, and success of an increasingly diverse and international student body, and candidates are urged to highlight any experience or background that may help them contribute to these goals in their application materials.
        Our primary need is for someone to teach two sections of introductory tax in the fall and a 400 level tax elective in the spring.

We seek candidates who are truly superior undergraduate teachers and have a commitment to research.
