Post-doc Position in Higher Education Learning Processes at the Department of Marketing at Copenhagen Business School

Updated: 12 days ago
Deadline: 10 Jan 2022

The Department of Marketing invites applications for a vacant position as post doc. The position is limited to nominally two years. The candidate will be part of the CBS local initiative: State-of-the-Art Platform for Developing and Sharing Knowledge on Value Co-Creating Pedagogies. This initiative aims to develop theoretical and practical understanding of co-created learning. Concretely, the initiative will create a learning space where students are tasked with the responsibility for applying their competencies to solving real problems (strategic and tactical) of businesses and non-profits who benefit directly through a process of joint learning. The position is in Higher Education Learning Processes with a specific focus on developing and describing pedagogy that creates—simultaneously—value for all involved stakeholders: students, businesses, non-profits, and governmental organizations.

Based in architecturally beautiful buildings in central Copenhagen, the Department of Marketing is a leading provider of excellent research-based education. This is an exciting time for us, as we celebrated recently our 100th anniversary. Our newly revised strategy is unashamedly ambitious. Our goal is to be the undisputed leader in marketing education in Scandinavia and a leading marketing department on a European level, held in high esteem in terms of our research and education. Our mission is to deliver excellent research-led education to an international audience at all levels, and to engage with business and society.

Faculty members are committed to rigorous theory development and theory-driven, empirical research—outcomes that are central goals for any reputed business school. The Department focuses on contributing to a holistic understanding of the interactions and activities in the marketplace. Thus, our research focuses on marketing, yet we draw on other academic disciplines to the extent that they improve the quality of our marketing research. We accordingly publish in both marketing and other relevant journals contained within the AJG ranking list. The research of the Department covers broad areas (often cross disciplinary) in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer marketing. Faculty members use a wide range of methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative.

The post doc will be based at the Department of Marketing but will work closely with CBS’s Teaching & Learning Unit. The specific tasks of the post doc are:

• Conduct a state-of-the-art audit of current value co-creating pedagogical practices.
• Develop theoretical/conceptual models within the field of higher education pedagogy and learning theory relevant to the project and be able to setup empirical research designs for testing these models.
• Develop deep understanding of learning processes in action through close collaboration with internal and external educators and researchers, as well as industry partners.
• Contribute to the development of manuscripts for academic publication and/or dissemination of the project results.
• Help develop online and offline platforms to disseminate research results.

Candidates need to hold a Ph.D., ideally from an accredited institution. They should have a strong research record (or potential) in learning processes in either higher education or organizations. Moreover, candidates should possess experience in course/workshop design and teaching experience.

Appointment and salary will be in accordance with the Ministry of Finance’s agreement with the Central Academic Organization.
