TRR 266 Accounting for Transparency


We are excited about the new trans-regional Collaborative Research Center “TRR 266 Accounting for Transparency” funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft – DFG). We are looking for ambitious young researchers to join the TRR 266 team! As part of the TRR 266 network, you will be building your research portfolio and working towards high-impact publications.

We invite you to join the TRR 266 team! Several doctoral and post-doctoral positions will open up on July 1, 2019, but later starting dates are possible.

As a team of more than 80 senior and junior researchers, we will conduct a broad and ambitious research program on how accounting and taxation affect firm and regulatory transparency and how regulation and transparency affect our economy and society. We intend to help develop effective regulation for firm transparency and a transparent tax system. We will apply diverse research methods ranging from analytical to empirical methods (archival, survey, survey experiments, lab experiments) to textual analyses and machine learning. The initial funding period of TRR 266 is July 2019 through June 2023; we envision to apply for two further four-year periods. The following universities participate in the TRR 266:

  • Paderborn University
  • Humboldt University of Berlin
  • University of Mannheim
  • Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich
  • European School of Management and Technology Berlin
  • Frankfurt School of Finance and Management
  • Goethe University Frankfurt
  • WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management

We offer an inspiring and competitive research environment as well as close cooperation with top-tier researchers within the TRR 266 and our broad international network. We strive for excellent post-graduate education which is achieved by pulling post-graduate courses across all participating universities. We encourage mobility and support flexible working environment.

We invite applications of candidates for Doctoral Researcher and Post-Doctoral Researcher positions. We look for candidates with research interests in managerial accounting, financial accounting or taxation. The candidates should be interested to work in an ambitious international team, good team players, have good English language skills and an independent way of working. Please feel free to contact us.
