Copenhagen Business School’s Department of Strategy and Innovation (SI) invites applications for a time-limited vacant position in strategy and/or innovation with a focus on international shipping/maritime economics. The position is offered as either an Associate or an Assistant Professorship depending on the qualifications of the applicant. Expected starting date no later than 1 August 2021.
SI wishes to strengthen its research and teaching in strategy and/or innovation within the maritime domain. The new associate/assistant professor shall conduct high quality research, and take the international shipping industry as the main empirical context for the research activities. Applicants without prior empirical research experience with the maritime sector may also apply.
The associate/assistant professor will teach in the BSc program in International Shipping and Trade, which is the only one of its kind in Northern Europe. The program educates students for jobs in commercial and analytical functions in a wide range of shipping and maritime companies. The program enjoys a strong reputation in shipping and is amongst the most popular BSc programs at CBS. The associate/assistant professor will teach in the program and supervise BSc projects, focusing on disciplines such as strategy and/or innovation with a special focus on the context of international shipping.
To qualify for an associate professor position, we seek candidates who can document a well-established research profile. Special emphasis will be put on a strong record of research publications at the highest international level (preferably in the generalist A+ journals in management), and experience in curriculum development and documented teaching skills. Candidates must be capable of providing dynamic leadership in the development of research and teaching, in securing external research funding, and in establishing strong ties with industry.
For an assistant professorship, 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.
Applicants with no prior research in the field of maritime economics may also apply for the position, and are required to include a research plan, detailing current and planned research and publications.
