Washington (April 26, 2004) -- The Office of the Chief Accountant of the Securities and Exchange Commission has named Jonathan Glover and Audrey Gramling as Academic Accounting Fellows for one-year terms beginning in August 2004.

Academic Accounting Fellows serve as a research resource for the commission staff by interpreting and communicating research materials as they relate to various areas of interest to the SEC. In addition, the Academic Fellows have been assigned to ongoing projects in the chief accountant's office that include rulemaking, liaison with the professional accounting standards-setting bodies, and consultation with registrants on accounting, auditing, independence and reporting matters.

Glover and Gramling replace the current Academic Accounting Fellow, Kimberly Smith, who will return to the College of William and Mary.

Glover is a full professor of accounting in the Graduate School of Industrial Administration at the Carnegie Mellon University, where he has taught since 1988. His research interests have been heavily focused on the interaction between accounting and incentives.

Gramling is an assistant professor of accountancy at Georgia State University's School of Accountancy, where she has taught since 2000. Previously, she taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Wake Forest University. Gramling's research interests are in auditing.
