SEC seeking candidates for professional accounting fellow program.

The Securities and Exchange Commission is now accepting applications for two professional accounting fellow positions in the Office of the Chief Accountant. The positions are for two-year terms beginning in June 1997.

The fellows, who will work directly with the chief accountant, will study and develop rule proposals under federal securities laws, serve as liaison with professional accounting standard-setting bodies and consult with registrants on accounting and reporting matters.

Candidates must have a minimum of eight years' experience in a public accounting firm or its equivalent, with a minimum of two years as a manager.

Applicants should be thoroughly familiar with the technical accounting and auditing literature as well as current issues confronting the profession. One of the positions requires experience in financial institution accounting, including banks, and financial instruments accounting. The other requires familiarity with accounting for business combinations, consolidations, impairments and stock compensation.

Each candidate is required to submit background information, an 8- to 10-page essay on a current accounting or auditing issue that involves the SEC and a brief resume outlining his or her qualifications.

Applications must be submitted by December 31, 1996. A description of the program and application procedures are available from the Office of the Chief Accountant, Securities and Exchange Commission, Mail Stop 11-3, 450 Fifth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20549. Address inquiries to Cody L. Smith at the Chief Accountant's Office.
