WASHINGTON, Oct. 17, 2016

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board today announced that it is seeking candidates for economic research fellowships for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Fellows will conduct research within the PCAOB Center for Economic Analysis, which provides economic and data analysis to inform decisions in many PCAOB programs, including standard setting, inspections, enforcement, and risk assessment.

The Center's Economic Research Fellowships are intended to generate high quality publishable economic research on topics of direct relevance to the mission of the PCAOB.

Candidates should have an active interest in auditing, the capital markets, and regulatory oversight matters. Additional details about the fellowships, including the application process and research topics of interest to the PCAOB, are available on the PCAOB website.

Ideal candidates for these positions include:

  • tenured or tenure-track junior faculty members in economics, finance, accounting, or a related area
  • doctoral students who have completed all course work in a doctoral program in economics, finance, accounting, or a related area, and are actively performing research or writing a dissertation

View working papers developed by past and current fellows.

The fellowships start in August 2017, or a mutually agreed-upon date, and continue for 12 months with the possibility of a single one-year renewal. Fellows receive a salary commensurate with experience as well as a competitive benefits package.

Applications are due no later than December 20, 2016.
