The Securities and Exchange Commission is looking for qualified accounting professors to fill four available academic fellowships at its headquarters in Washington.

Two of the fellowships are in the Office of the Chief Accountant, which functions as the primary advisor to the SEC on accounting and auditing matters. The SEC anticipates that one of the fellowships will require credentials in financial accounting, while the other will require credentials in auditing. These academic fellows serve as research resources for the OCA, assist in registrant matters, and participate in OCA projects. The fellows are also asked to develop and present a training session on emerging or controversial accounting/auditing issues for accountants and attorneys at the SEC. Requirements include a Ph.D., a strong research background in financial accounting or auditing, and a CPA or equivalent technical expertise.
