2020 Joint Midyear Meeting of the AIS, SET and International Sections

Call for Junior Faculty Participants in Senior/Junior Faculty Mentoring Session

The AAA International Accounting Section Research Committee invites applications from junior faculty for a Senior Faculty/Junior Faculty mentoring session to be held in conjunction with the 2020 Joint Midyear Meeting of the AIS, SET and International (IAS) Sections in Orlando, FL from January 23th – 25th, 2020.

The mentoring session will provide junior faculty an opportunity to interact with senior faculty experienced in international accounting research. In addition, junior faculty will have the opportunity to discuss a current research project with a senior faculty member and get their insights on the project. The goal of the mentoring session is to provide continuing support to the junior faculty after they have moved to a stage of their career beyond the target audience for the IAS New Faculty/PhD Student consortium.

"For purposes of this mentoring session, "junior faculty" includes all International Accounting Section members who have completed a doctoral degree (i.e., PhD or DBA) and are full-time tenure-track faculty (but not yet tenured.) All such junior faculty are eligible to apply.  Junior faculty members participating in the mentoring session are expected to provide a copy of their curriculum vitae and a short (2-4 pages) summary of a current research project two weeks before the meeting (i.e. on or before January 10, 2020) in order to give the senior faculty time to review the summary before the meeting. A summary is not required to sign-up for the mentoring session. The project may be a research proposal, or a current working paper. Research proposals are expected to be developed well enough to allow meaningful feedback to be provided by the senior faculty member (i.e., they should include a well-defined research question and some description of the methodology to be used).
The submission deadline is Thursday, December 19, 2019.

We will invite six junior faculty members to this year’s breakfast mentoring session. Slots will be filled on a first come basis. If you are interested in participating, or would like additional information, please contact the Chair of AAA IAS Research Committee, David Godsell, at Please share this announcement with any junior faculty in your department that you feel may benefit from the mentoring opportunity.
