BLACKSBURG, Va., June 8, 2012 – Sudip Bhattacharjee, associate professor of accounting and information systems in the Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Tech, has been reappointed as the Konrad W. Kubin Junior Faculty Fellow by the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors.
The Konrad W. Kubin Junior Faculty Fellowship in Accounting and Information Systems was established by alumni and friends of Konrad W. Kubin, a faculty member in the Department of Accounting and Information Systems from 1972 to 2003. Kubin taught auditing and financial accounting and was active in the accounting profession. For many years, he ran the Accounting and Auditing Conference co-sponsored by the department and the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants.
Konrad W. Kubin Junior Faculty Fellows retain the fellowship for a three-year period.
A member of the Virginia Tech community since 2001, Bhattacharjee teaches at the Northern Virginia Center, National Capital Region, in Falls Church, Va. He has published 11 peer-reviewed journal articles and one book chapter and has made 16 presentations at national accounting meetings.
Two of his articles have been published in the top two journals in academic accounting, with a third paper and a forthcoming publication in the top Canadian academic accounting journal. He also has a paper in the leading auditing journal. Bhattacharjee’s inventory of working papers is "always substantial," said Reza Barkhi, associate professor and head of the Department of Accounting and Information Systems, and "targeted to the journals that will bring recognition to the department."
Bhattacharjee is active in the department’s Ph.D. program. He has served on seven Ph.D. committees and is currently chairing one. In addition, he teaches graduate students exclusively, and is recognized by those students for his quality teaching.
Bhattacharjee received his bachelor's degree from the University of Bombay (India), a master's degree from Virginia Tech, and a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts.
