SEC seeks candidates for accounting fellowship program.

The Securities and Exchange Commission is accepting applications for three professional accounting fellowships with the Office of the Chief Accountant. The three fellows will be selected for two-year terms in early 1994.

SEC Chief Accountant Walter P. Schuetze will select at least one individual with extensive experience in the areas of financial instruments and financial institutions, including insurance.

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

Candidates should have at least eight years' experience in a CPA firm or an organization that provides similar experience in financial accounting and reporting. One year of this experience must have been at the managerial level. Candidates should be familiar with technical accounting and auditing literature and current issues confronting the profession.

Applicants are required to submit background information and a brief position paper on a current accounting subject of interest to them and the SEC by December 31. A description of the program and application procedures are available from the Office of the Chief Accountant, Securities and Exchange Commission, Mail Stop 9-5, 450 Fifth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20549.
