Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a position as Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Strategy and International Business at the Department of Strategy and Innovation. Expected starting date is 1 May 2020.
Department of Strategy and Innovation is a strategy-oriented department at CBS. The number of staff in the department is approximately 80. This includes about 45 faculty members (professors, associate professors, tenure track assistant professors), 7 administrative staff, and 30 members of staff who are hired on temporary contracts as research assistants, post docs or PhD students.
The department’s ambition is to create an internationally leading environment for research and teaching in strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship, and international business. The theoretical foundation for research in these areas is eclectic, combining strategy and/or internationalization theory with insights from economics, sociology, psychology, and economic geography. Methodologically, the department places considerable emphasis on the solid application of empirical methods, featuring qualitative interview studies, surveys, register data, or experiments.
The teaching of the department is very diverse across programs and areas and largely falls within the four research areas of the department, i.e. strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship and international business. Moreover, the department is also involved in teaching the foundations of business studies, i.e.: statistics, microeconomics and industrial economics. Hence, the staff of the department is involved in teaching of bachelor programs, master programs, part time study programs as well as MBA and PhD programs. Among those, the department is home to the two most sought-after master programs at CBS, namely Management of Innovation and Business Development, and Finance and Strategic Management. The department is heavily involved in the different programs in shipping management and logistics on bachelor, master and MBA level, as well as master programs within biotech business and healthcare innovation.
The assistant professorship is a non-tenured position of 4-6 years leading to a tenured position as Associate Professor, if the requirements are met. The decision regarding tenure is taken between the fourth and the sixth year. The tenure requirements are 1 A+ publication and 3 A- or 2 A+ publications, satisfactory teaching evaluations, and satisfactory participation in the assistant professor program at CBS on teaching principles and methods. Furthermore, the applicant chosen is expected to show good academic citizenship, meaning is expected to be physically present on a regular basis and actively participate in the activities of the department, such as research seminars, workshops and conferences.
Responsibilities might include:
- Teaching and examination in various study programs
- Development of existing and or new study programs
- Individual and group based research activities of high international standard
- Promotion of CBS’s academic reputation
- Communicating findings to the public in general and to CBS’s stakeholders in particular
- Responsibility for publishing, scientific communication and research-based teaching
- Attracting external funding opportunities
Applicants must hold a PhD degree or have equivalent qualifications on the time of appointment.
Emphasis is placed on the applicant’s research potential, which means that a researcher with a large research potential may be preferred to a researcher with a large research production.
The applicant must have professional proficiency in English (written and spoken).
Copenhagen Business School has a broad commitment to the excellence, distinctiveness and relevance of its teaching and research programs.
