Job description

Aalborg University Business School is a newly established business school at Aalborg University, a science and technology focused university with world-class research in a number of disciplines. Aalborg University is a founding institution in Problem-Based Learning and with this as a guiding principle, the Business School plays a major role in bridging the gap between business and science that helps commercialize inventions and generate growth in businesses.

The Accounting Research Group (ACC) consists of researchers related to the different fields within accounting, including several of the leading Danish experts within fields such as auditing, public sector accounting and management accounting.

The ACC members are part of a number of international and Scandinavian based research networks, and the research conducted in the group is aimed at both the highest levels of international academic publication as well as national and local dissemination through books, seminars and the media. The group frequently has visiting researchers who participate in the research activities and seminars as well as contributing to teaching activities.

ACC has a continual flow of Ph.D. students, both with full university funding and in combination with the private sector, which is believed to be a vital part of creating a dynamic research environment. ACC is responsible for two flagship educational programmes which combine research-based teaching with the unique problem-based learning practiced at Aalborg University.
